Firstly, we will invest in our production facilities to increase efficiency and capacity. By utilising the latest technology and machinery, we will be able to manufacture our products faster and more cost-effectively. This will not only enable us to better meet customer demand, but also strengthen our competitiveness on the market.

We are also planning to improve our warehouse and logistics infrastructure. By expanding our storage capacity and implementing an efficient logistics system, we can ensure that our products reach our customers on time and in perfect condition. This will lead to greater customer satisfaction and help us to further expand our market presence.

To ensure that all these planned measures are implemented effectively, we have set clear milestones with specific deadlines.
