- Being among such prominent business personalities is a great honor for me. When I set up the company 35 years ago, building it from scratch, I was dreaming about a modern, strong enterprise, hiring hundreds of workers. I had a vision and ambition. At the same time I have never bitten off more than I could chew. I have been down-to-earth, I have built the company sensibly, stably and safely. It turned out that it made sense. I am proud to have created a company that hires a few thousand people, which is modern and financially sound, has strong foundation and great reputation. A company that is the showcase of Poland abroad. Anyway, I keep saying that we are just at the beginning of development. That the 35 years is just the start. The real boom is yet to come – says Leszek Gierszewski, the president and founder of DRUTEX.
