The company's next centennial will be ushered in by a new President: Magdalena Tokarczyk-Cyran, who assumed the position on February 1. Interestingly, this is only the second (!) in the company's 100-year history of a woman managing the entire company. After all, at the beginning of the 1990s, the position of CEO was held by Ms. Krystyna Pazdur.
Magdalena joined the KFA Armatura team in August 2018 in the role of Director of Marketing and Sales, and from September 2020 served as a Board Member. She is extremely involved in the life of the company, and over the last few years she has made many changes, some very bold and difficult, but thanks to this the brand is in a different place than it was, entering the next century with a raised brow. There are still many challenges ahead for the new CEO - importantly, full of energy , she wants to meet them all!

We like to say that KFA is such a fierce old lady ," laughs Magdalena. Although she's already 100 years old, she still has the desire to develop, to learn about new solutions, to innovate. And with her experience, she is not afraid to make bold decisions. Anyway, just like me, " she adds.
Operating in the construction industry, Armatura Krakow is definitely in the realm of men. As a manufacturer of aluminum radiators, as well as offering sanitary fittings in the broadest sense (bathroom and kitchen faucets, valves) along with shower cabins and screens, it tends to work with a male clientele.

But... the situation is dynamically changing, which makes us very happy. Besides: who usually decides on interior design? It is known: women, because they are the ones who more often look into the interior design press and care about the aesthetics of the home. KFA Armatura understands this perfectly, and its CEO also closely follows trends and strongly supports the implementation of innovative product solutions. In recent years, the brand's portfolio has undergone a tremendous change: many new collections of bathroom faucets have appeared, as well as eco-friendly kitchen faucets, such as the Mungo with water filtering function and the antibacterial silver ion radiator.
The anniversary year will also be full of novelties. KFA Armatura's offer will include a line of gold bathroom faucets called Moza, as well as a collection of functional bathroom accessories in 3 colors. In addition, plenty of unusual environmental and product activities. After all, one is only 100 years old once in a lifetime!
