A company from Slavonia furnishes American hotels with furniture

first_imgThat Slavonia can and knows differently is an example of furniture manufacturer Ancona grupa doo from Đakovo, which has been entrusted with equipping five hotels in the United States, from New York through Washington to Miami, writes Business diary.It is about Ancona Group from Đakovo, which produces furniture in its own production, and employs over 120 employees. “These are two hotel chains there and an international competition. Four hotels belong to the Club Quarters chain, three of which are in New York and one in Washington, these four we have to equip by the end of the year. I’m going to America next week because of an arrangement for a possible four more outfits next year. There are indications that this could turn into a very serious business. It has also been agreed to equip a hotel belonging to the Even chain, located in Miami, and we have to deliver it by March or April next year. We sent a model room to America for a project in Miami, and to equip hotels in New York and Washington is already working hard in production”Points out the owner of Ancona Group, Markica Stanušić for Poslovni dnevnik.Photo: Ancona groupExactly one “small” company from Croatia managed to contract the equipping of five American hotels in 2017 and 2018 through a regular tender. You know when you apply for a job and if you have the best offer you get a job. So simple and normal, right?”I was on a trip to America last year for Christmas and New Year. I accidentally booked the Club Quarters hotel and when I arrived, I expected a lot more. We went through a dozen hotels, but the furniture seemed terribly cheap, modest. I contacted an agent I met at the fair and asked if we had the opportunity to compete there. There was a competition, and just for that hotel where I stayed for the first time. We called and – passed ” Stanušić points out and adds that his new client has so far imported everything from the Blistok East, and never from Europe. “I don’t know what they expected here, but when they saw the company, the facilities, the model room, our approach to work, they went in amazement”Concludes Stanušić.Let’s buy Croatian.

Takeaways from Syracuse’s Orange Madness preseason showcase

first_imgElijah Hughes, though he didn’t handle the ball as much, seemed to be the Orange’s best player Friday. He was limited to a few attempts from three, but made two of them from deep past the line. Boeheim said at media day Friday afternoon that Hughes will handle the ball a good amount this year, but will be doing so from the small forward spot. Comments As pop music droned through the Carrier Dome, central New York got its first look at the 2019-20 SU men’s basketball team in the annual Orange Madness preseason showcase. Team White defeated Team Orange, 60-53, after a 40-minute scrimmage on Friday night. Here are some takeaways from the event.Buddy’s developmentEarly on in the first period, Buddy Boeheim spotted up on the right elbow. He had already knocked down two shots from beyond the arc, so Joe Girard III crashed toward the 3-point line. Buddy waited, faked and strode into the paint for an uncontested layup.Boeheim, who limited his opportunities dribbling the ball in extended run toward the end of last season, flashed a new ball-handling acumen in small doses Friday night. Buddy occasionally created some space for others as a lead ball handler at the top of the key, but mainly looked for his own shot off of dribble moves.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textTo knock down his second 3-pointer of the scrimmage, Buddy performed an in-and-out dribble and hopped to his right, knocking down a contested jumper on the perimeter. Buddy did most of his damage on spot ups, but his ability to put the ball on the floor made him more than a one-dimensional threat.New Faces Earlier Friday afternoon in the Carmelo K. Anthony Center, SU head coach Jim Boeheim lauded his veterans, but also praised the freshman group that will need to fill the rotation. In the Dome, the Orange faithful caught a first glimpse at some of the faces Boeheim alluded to.Quincy Guerrier displayed his athleticism in and out of the paint, including three 3s. New York state’s all-time leading high school scorer, Joe Girard III, netted a three from the left wing in the second half. And Jesse Edwards, a 6-foot-11 Dutch center, rebounded on both ends. Edwards brought the crowd to its feet in the first half with an alley-oop dunk off a feed from Marek Dolezaj.44Seated in his usual spot on the sidelines, Boeheim looked out at the Carrier Dome’s new court — which now features Boeheim’s name written in cursive — and unofficially kicked off his 44th season as Syracuse’s head coach.For most of Friday night’s Orange Madness event, which featured fan giveaways and skills competitions before an intrasquad scrimmage, Boeheim stayed in his seat. He ceded coaching duties to assistants Gerry McNamara (Team Orange) and Adrian Autry (Team White). During halftime, Boeheim popped into both huddles and offered advice. The results didn’t matter, not yet anyway.Before the scrimmage tipped off, Boeheim reminded those in attendance that this scrimmage was one step toward the season’s real start — Nov. 6 against the reigning champion Virginia Cavaliers in the Dome.Best of the rest Two “best-of” monikers were handed out on Friday night. Sophomore Jalen Carey edged John Bol Ajak, Dolezaj and Guerrier in a skills contest. Carey dotted through the makeshift course and swished a 3-pointer to end the event. Then, freshman Brycen Goodine (12-of-15) bested Buddy for the title of Syracuse’s best 3-point shooter.   Published on October 11, 2019 at 11:20 pm Contact Nick: nialvare@syr.edu | @nick_a_alvarezcenter_img Dolezaj showed off slick passing skills Friday. Several times he fired passes — including a lob to Edwards — without having come down from his jump to receive the pass into him. He threw no-look passes, turned quick on outlets and picked up a few assists passing out to the wing from the paint.  Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more
