Obituary for Berislav Djukanovic

We were shocked to hear of the death of our long-standing Serbian raumplus partner Berislav Djukanovic, aged just 55 years old. He suffered a stroke while driving his car at night and was killed during the resulting accident. Originally one of our customers in Serbia, “Beri” became our employee when the economic situation in his home country took a dramatic turn for the worse in 2011, relocating to China to develop the local raumplus production facility for us. While his business partner in Serbia kept the business there going, Beri successfully managed the balancing act between Europe and Asia. Despite the language barrier he quickly became the “father” of his team, while still also managing to devote time to his own family, despite the huge distance that separated them. So we were pleased for Beri when he was able to return home in 2013, after handing over the fantastic results of his pioneering work in China – western product quality and European service standards for Asian customers. He also played a major role in helping to organize our first export meeting in China. 2013 saw an economic upturn in Serbia and Beri returned home to make the most of this opportunity. Until fate took him from us, far too early. We join Berislav Djukanovic’s family and everyone who knew him in grieving for the loss of a man who we will all miss desperately.

Under Pressure

If you want to succeed in your everyday life, you need to be able to stand up to pressure. When it comes to our doors and systems, we want to be able to guarantee this to you, so we regularly put our products to the test. Or you could say – we put our products under pressure. Sample constructions and functional endurance tests; load and comparative testing – they must continually prove their functionality, quality and durability. Here at raumplus we even test how vandal-proof they are. The result? Over the last three years the technical department alone has carried out some 1.25 million test cycles and our sliding doors have covered a distance of just under 2,500 km on the test bench. This was supplemented by additional quality tests. We consciously subject our systems to everything we can think of because if they pass our tests we can happily allow them to leave the plant to undergo the daily wear and tear that makes up the daily life of a piece of furniture. Because they will then have proven that they are great, even when under pressure.

Flexible but Down to Earth

raumplus bottom tracks can be used on any surface. No matter whether carpet or tiles; parquet or concrete; landmarked or brand new; our bottom tracks are always up to the job. The inserted version can make rooms barrier-free; the surface version is just 6 millimeters in height, making it easy to walk over. Single or multi-track the bottom tracks guide our sliding doors safely in the long term, even over the uneven floors typical for old buildings, and can also be perfectly matched to any RAL color.
