A short quote in Latvian on how the business was started (the company was founded in 1999):

«Nopirkām māju, atvedām iekārtas, veicām remontu, sakārtojām apkures sistēmu un sākām ražot. Sākumā bijām septiņi cilvēki. Četri strādāja ražošanā, trīs – administrācijā. Otrā gada beigās bijām jau 48 darbinieki, un vecajās telpās mums vairs nebija vietas. Tad pretējā ielas pusē sākām būvēt jaunu ēku, kur atrodamies joprojām. Kad pārvācāmies uz jaunajām telpām, bijām jau 75 cilvēki. Lai kaut ko uzsāktu, jābūt optimismam. Uzņēmējdarbībai raksturīgs zināms risks, bet, ja neko nemēģina, tad nekā arī nebūs. Ne vienmēr jābūt starta kapitālam, galvenais ir laba ideja, biznesa plāns, tad radīsies arī finansējums,» iedrošinot jaunos uzņēmējus saka veiksmīgas ražotnes vadītājs Ilmars Osmanis.” ²
