We really believe in the future that the Contract Channel may offer in terms of business for those companies dedicated to the Decoration, and in our case, to the curtain accessories and drapery hardware. And for this reason we have signed up to CENFIM.

It is very focused in helping large companies to improve and strengh their relationships in the Contract Channel, and to the building of hotels. It creates the incentive to professional training and business meetings, making a huge contribution to the sector development.
Thanks to this partnership, CENFIM and ALTRAN will be able to interact with some other companies, nourishing themselves with competitive advantages, and increasing the leadership positioning in the sector of the Home Curtain Decoration.
