History

From the early beginnings to today.

In the 20 years of its existence, MIK expanded its manufacturing capacity twice and became one of the top manufacturers of PVC doors and windows. Owing to its creative and competent staff, efficient management and firm values, the fledgling company grew into what it is today: a company with almost 200 employees and a 17% share of the Slovenian PVC windows market. Today, MIK is more than a manufacturer of high-quality windows – we change the way you see the world.

Production and storage

The production process begins in the technology department. There our experts prepare the order for production based on the measurements and details obtained by our measurement expert. The whole process from receiving an order, doing the measurements, preparing technical details all the way to production is highly supervised and completed electronically. This enables us immediate elimination of possible human error and, of course,  ensures a short delivery period. The production line is equipped with computer controlled and guided energy efficient machines that are optimized so that the consumption of material as well as energy is lowered to a minimum.

Computer-guided production line
 

The entire production process of MIK PVC and ALU windows and doors is controlled through an EAN barcode. Therefore, every weld and every product, no matter whether it is the 1st or the 10.000th, is produced identically and with the same accuracy. Using the EAN barcode, any individual product can be tracked throughout the various phases of production.

Throughout our production process  we use only environmental-friendly materials (such as water-based colors …).  All the waste material is collected separately and then recycled. All the finished products as well as the materials are stored in indoor storage areas.

Our own computer based system of supply and storage and accurate logistics of supply and dispatch enable quick and simple daily material reception and dispatch of finished products thus decreasing the possibility of damages on finished products and ensuring on time installation.
