10. LINK S.J. - memorandum information
LINK (72-004 Tanowo, Wegornik 2/2, Poland, Vat no PL85100132076, Regon: 810370709) was founded in Poland in 1993. It is a private company owned by Maciej Wedzinski. Since then there have been a range of very successful publications, the most important being the Polish Ports Handbook, which is updated annually. Link employs 9 staff: 8 in Szczecin and 1 in Gdansk. LINK also co-operates with approximately 15 subcontractors (editors, graphic designers and translators, etc).
The most significant characteristic of globalization is specialization and concentration, this does not only lead to excellence in core competencies, but also to strong inter-dependencies. In this business environment economic success is more than ever determined by the capability to raise relevant information. This is especially true for the maritime industry due to the enormous number of agents in the market and the vast pace of technological development. LINK has become a specialist in providing this type of information for the maritime industry. Our publications are widely appreciated throughout the world due to our eagerness to apply the highest quality standards. Being the market leader in providing this kind of information, we are constantly searching for possibilities to enhance the quality and availability of our services. In order to increase availability LINK started to develop an Internet system for the maritime industry. In 2006 LINK had estimated together with PRINT-EXPO Co. Ltd. (196128, Russia, St. Petersburg, Blagodatnaya, 6) the joint venture BIMA Europe (Baltic Information Marketing Agency). It is an ambitious project combining numerous services.
The easiest way to become better acquainted with our projects is a visit at BIMA www.bima.eu
If you will visit the website BIMA you will see that our project is very ambitious. We do have the resources to develop it, but not at the pace we would like, and we would like to speed up the development of the BIMA. We therefore are looking for partners to fulfil our vision. With the reputation of the brand name LINK & PRINT-EXPO Co. Ltd., our expertise and contacts, we believe that the BIMA is an excellent investment for those trying to enter the lucrative maritime market.
