High-quality products are a showcase of Bertrand. Among them, there are many aluminum solutions, carried out by experienced staff. We had the opportunity to talk to someone who knows inside out of not only the production process, but above all those who are behind it.


Mateusz Miotk is currently the aluminum production coordinator at Bertrand. His adventure with the company began about 18 years ago. At that time, the production headquarters were still located in Lubocino, near Krokowa. As our interviewee points out, he wanted to work at Bertrand only for the holiday period. At first, the production of windows was not his interest, but eventually he decided to take up the challenge.


– I was an assembler then. I worked there for 8 years, learning all the secrets of an aluminum joinery under the supervision of one of the managers, Ireneusz Myszke, who instilled in me a passion for aluminum, and Jarosław Uzarski – he says. – After that time, I became a foreman. In my work on production, I was motivated primarily by the desire to develop and expand the knowledge that has remained with me to this day. So it can be said that I have been on this holiday for 18 years. Over time, my duties also included cooperation with the Bertrand service. It was the contact with the customer that showed me how important the quality of the product is.

Mateusz’s favorite slogan about aluminum products is “a showcase of contemporary architecture“.


– An interesting fact is that the correct form is a joinery, not aluminum carpentry – he adds. – Aluminum has many advantages – it is the best material for creating large structures. It is characterized by lightness, strength, durability or the fact that it does not corrode.


Mateusz defines his function as a link between production and the production preparation department. He appreciates it mostly for the opportunity to work with people, and when it comes to Bertrand’s favorite products, he looks at it from a big picture.


– I am most pleased when I see that our products fit perfectly into the building – he emphasizes. – Size or type of the products do not matter, what matter is the process – the architect designed the whole thing in a thoughtful way, we made the dedicated elements and everything looks great together.


From the very beginning of his work at Bertrand, Mateusz greatly appreciated the importance attached to quality in this company, which he also values in his private life. However, as it clearly emphasizes, people remain the most important. As he claims, it is not only due to the cooperation, but also goodcontact and relationships that have been established. He has been working for so many years and is motivated to develop more.

– They are the ones who create the production – all these people who assemble our doors and windows – he says. – We talk not only about business, but also, when there is time, about private matters. I know a lot about them, I try to understand the weaker days, they can come to me with any problem. I know that I work with a great team that is trusted and extremely helpful. Communication and mutual respect is, in my opinion, the key to success.
