OUR QUALITY POLICY :

In Anatolian culture, Ahi merchants used to inspect their colleagues. If some merchant acted unethically and deceived a customer, the other merchants of the town would "hang his shoes on the roof." When the villagers saw the shoes, they would not shop from that merchant.

Quality is a philosophy of life and its history is old. We believe that a company should define objectives that focus on customers. As Elhadefler, we focus on "added value". We know that creativity, improvement and hard work can create the concept of added value.

La Plume That is why since 1941 we have improved ourselves knowing that we manufacture products for people. We know that we should be different.

Our Mission :
We will create easy, economical ve hygienic solutions for our customers with our innovative and creative products. We will set effective accents on table tops that will glisten in splendour.

Our Promise :
We will always follow international standarts, improve our quality standarts all the time and innovate continously.
Our Vision :
La Plume, will be one of the leading companies that will determine table fashion in the world.

Research & Development :

The shoe is there. It exists. It can be seen and can be tried. However R & D is just a projection of a future that doesn't exist at the moment. It isn't there, it can't be seen, nor tried.
Robert A. Frosch

Today, "creating intellectual capital" is much more important then creating financial capital.
We are aware of this reality.
Since our first day in business, we have been investing in R&D and searching for new products
and production models.
