A very special milestone
Awning expert markilux has made its 1.5 millionth awning. Since April, it has been adorning a town house in Hamburg.
In 1972, markilux sold its first 500 ready-made awnings. Recently the company produced its 1.5 millionth awning. This special number exemplifies the strong transformation of the brand and its products over almost five decades.
A symbolic markilux awning recently set off on its journey to Hamburg. It is the 1.5 millionth to have left the factory. “The model was an MX-3, which embodies our modern brand design in a very special way,” says Christiane Berning, Head of the Marketing and Business Development Department.
It all began with one ready-made awning
Sending out a product that bundles so much experience is an achievement that would make anyone proud. “Especially when you look back and see how the brand has developed over the years,” she says. After all, this medium-sized firm belongs to a group of companies that has had its roots in the textile industry since the 1920s. In 1972, the company produced its very first awning with the aim of giving awnings more technical sophistication and a more attractive look. 500 awnings were sold in the first year explains Christiane Berning. Within just four years, production had increased a good tenfold.
Assembly in Hamburg a milestone
And now the proud owners of the 1.5 millionth product have received their awning in Hamburg. An important milestone for markilux. The company Markisen-Droste took care of the order and installed the sun protection system. The Häßler family’s small town house in Hamburg was embellished with two MX-3s on two separate floors. The family is really pleased with the new shade provider. According to Ms Berning, markilux contributed to the installation costs as a bonus for the customer. The installation team also received a small bonus as a thank you for the careful, quick installation and also for the many years of good cooperation.
Now present in around 40 countries
But the road to actually reaching this milestone was a long one. The company now sells 49 different models in around 40 countries and offers high-quality service with its well-developed network of specialist partners. The “anniversary awning” shows what can come of a simple idea. Christiane Berning is certain: “With curiosity and passion, we have transformed what used to be “just an awning” into an attractive design feature that adds a little more sparkle to any home.” And that is not going to change in the future.
