POLANIK

Polanik company was found in 1966 by Wiesław Szczepanik. At the beginning of the existence, the company manufactured household items, license plates, drawing board with accessories, etc.

The production of the sport javelins started in 1975. The owner had constructed the machinery and all the instrumentation to produce those articles. Those sport articles had already been exported to many countries in the world, through the of foreign trade centre. The javelins were simple and cheap, designed for training. They were made of steel tape and in fact this product was in great demand, especially abroad. However the ambition of Wiesław Szczepanik was to produce the high class competition javelins, made of duralumin pipes.

In 1985, after more than five years of work, struggling not only with technical problems, but also with unfavourable circumstances for private enterprises and the general economic crisis, the owner of the company completed the construction of the machine and all the instrumentation to produce the aluminium javelins. In 1987, the innovative and unusual technical solutions allowed to obtain the patent, for both the machine producing javelins and the way of performing them. First units of aluminium javelins left the factory in 1986. They were advantageous by high precision of performance, high stiffness and compliance with standards of the International Association of Athletic Federations (IAAF).
Technical solutions were innovative and have never been seen anywhere and that resulted in obtaining a patent in 1987 on the machine itself and the production process.

Thanks to the previous export contracts, it was possible to obtain the export license and sell products without mediation of the foreign trade centre. It also facilitated traveling abroad in order to look for new recipients. At the time, when people waited for hours for international phone calls and nobody heard about devices such as fax, the only way to attract foreign client was to go abroad with products samples. Additionally, the Polish products had opinion of poor quality and technological backwardness. Another impediment to enter the market was lack of the contacts in athletes' environment, like coaches and activists, because neither Wiesław Szczepanik, nor none of his entourage didn’t practice athletics. Manufacturing a javelin was quite a challenge for an inventor and constructor, not a result of an ended career as it usually happens in most of companies of this industry.
However, beyond the expectations, the high quality and attractive price of javelins allowed to gain some recipients directly after the first trip. They were big and well known in the industry Belgium and German companies and we cooperate with them to this day.
Participation as a subexhibitor in ISPO fair in Munich - the largest exposition event in the sport industry, allowed to establish some more contracts with other clients.
