Azersun has been around for over 20 years. What would you say has been the company’s trajectory to date?

The company has been around for more than two decades, during which time numerous changes have taken place. It is particularly gratifying that these changes are for the better. A highly competitive market has emerged in Azerbaijan over the years. This, in turn, has paved the way for the production of goods that would be competitive in foreign markets. The development of Azersun is closely intertwined with the development of Azerbaijan as a whole.

How would you describe the role Azersun has played in the development of the private sector and business environment in Azerbaijan?

As one of Azerbaijan’s first private companies, Azersun has played a tremendous role in private enterprise development. By putting high-quality and affordable products on the local market, Azersun has set an example for other companies to follow. Over the years competition in the market has only intensified, as all companies strive to meet customer demand in a more efficient manner. This is a win-win situation for the country’s private sector and consumers.

What are the company’s plans for the future?

Azersun Holding has very ambitious plans for the near future. Major steps are being taken in Azerbaijan these days to improve the wellbeing of the population. We are creating jobs. There is extensive state support for private enterprise development in the country. Azersun Holding exports its products to different countries around the world, thus promoting Azerbaijan internationally.

What are the key management principles for Azersun?

As in all major companies, Azersun Holding has its own regulations and charter. The company is also managed in accordance with the requirements of Azerbaijani national legislation. Our guiding principle is to create pleasant working conditions for our staff. Our top priority is to ensure the safety of our personnel and live up to their expectations. Many of the specialists currently working in major companies in Azerbaijan have attended the school of Azersun.
