Kemiś is a family business that started with my father's passion for… photography.
Dad not only took great photos, but also sold envelopes for publishing photos to his friends, bringing them in a Polonaise with a trailer from Germany. The demand was so great that he made a business out of it.
From the very beginning I was fascinated by this world, so I got involved in the company as much as I could.
I remember back in 2004, when I talked my dad into importing digital frames from China. It was a simple product - an ordinary LCD screen, thanks to which, instead of 1 photo, it was possible to display over 1000 photos in the frame.
It turned out to be a shot at 10.
We hit the absolute best moment on the market. Before we knew it, we had become so popular that our product was bought by companies in every major skyscraper in Warsaw and beyond.
This was followed by further successes.
We took part in the "Absolut" vodka campaign, and our "levitating bottle full of vodka" could be seen in practically every Polish bar. We created inserts for the "Bravo" magazine during the World Cup. Even the famous "Polsat Passport" was produced by us.
Everything was going great until 2008 ...
At that time, we mainly relied on the advertising market. Then came the global crisis, which caused almost all companies in the industry to freeze their capital.
We lost 90% of our turnover. It practically wiped our company off the face of the earth.
We had to cut all unnecessary expenses immediately - both corporate and private. It was very hard…
But we didn't give up!
We immediately began looking for alternative ways to do business in the new and difficult times.
This is how we started rebuilding the company step by step.
We set up a retail store, and shortly after that, an online store. We sold unusual products, so there were a lot of people willing. The situation finally started to improve.
In February 2010, my dad retired from the business due to illness, and at the age of 26, I became fully responsible for the further development of the company.
It was then that we decided to try our hand at wholesale.
And this is how Kemiś was created.
From the beginning, the mission of the wholesaler was to help small and medium-sized enterprises develop by providing them with well-selling products. And in small quantities that they could not get from other wholesalers.
Despite the fact that we were developing quickly (in February we earned only PLN 47, and at the end of December we already had PLN 98,000), something still bothered me.
I couldn't accept the fact that the wholesaler sells the same products as my retail store. So in practice I was competing with my own clients! When I saw this, I immediately closed the retail store. And I never went back to that practice.
We can see that our clients appreciate this honest approach, because the company is doing better and better every year. The best proof of this is that at the end of 2021 our income was already over PLN 3,200,000.
In recent years, we have received a distinction twice from the "Business Gazelles" - the oldest, most reliable and most popular ranking of small and medium-sized enterprises in Poland.
And we're not going to stop there!
We are a family company in which the 2-generation is currently working. Why is it so important? Because as a family business, we build all our activities based on long-term plans and relationships. This makes our suppliers meet high standards confirmed by numerous certificates and there is no room for random situations. We also know that relationships with customers are built for many years, which is confirmed by customers in their opinions on google or other partner websites. With over 10,000 successful implementations per year, we have extensive experience and we consistently supply our customers with products on which they earn dignity.
