Our company was founded in 1983.
In 1990 we started the production of sports equipment.
Three years later we enter into cooperation with the U.S. company Sure Shot, Inc. At that time we imported plastic backboards and exported portable streetball units. The company was selected as the basketball equipment supplier for Olympic Games in Atlanta in 1996 and that was the first big achievement.
In 1997 the company went through structural and organizational transformation, we purchased the Polish assets of the U.S. corpotation, we named the company Gramet Sport Ltd. and retained the rights to the Sure Shot trade mark, which is well known in Europe and all over the world.
In 2001 Gramet Sport became a partner of International Basketball Federation FIBA and since then we are one of nine companies in the world that have FIBA certificate for our professional basketball portable units.
In 2004 our production, customer service, documentation process went through external audit organized by TUV NORD experts and we achieved ISO 9001 certificate. One year later we supplied our professional basketball portable unit to Serbia and Montenegro for European Championship for Men.
In 2008 the company changed the name to Sport Grupa Ltd.
Currently the company employs 70 people, from which 60 percent have been working for the company for more than 10 years. Thanks to internal polls we know that the majority of employees identify with the company and products made by them or under their control and that have impact for the quality of our products and service.
Today our offerings includes not only basketball equipment (which represents 60 percent of all manufactured products in our work shop), but also equipment for other sports activities. This is mainly heavy equipment made of steel or aluminum such as goals, ball caddies and equipment carts, play grounds like Multisport Arena, volleyball, badminton, tennis posts but also fine quipment made of other materials.
Apart from sports equipment production our offerings also contains design and installation of sport fields together with assembling of synthetic sports surfaces such as artificial grass, polyurethane surfaces, modular polypropylene surfaces.
Our sports equipment is exported to more than 30 countries. In Denmark, Sweden, Great Britain, France, Germany or Italy the Sure Shot logo can be noticed in many places: at sports courts, schools, parks, private gardens. Our product were also exported to Ethiopia, Libya, Ghana, Tunisia and Hawaii. Export sales is estimated for 90 percent of annual sales, as most of orders come from abroad from regular and returned customers what shows good quality of products and good service.
Thanks to the fact that almost whole equipment is manufactured in our factory in Mińsk Mazowiecki, we control the quality at each stage of the production. Every product consists of several components manufactured, painted and mounted in our work shop. In house technological process includes: severing, pressing, drilling, grinding, welding, degreasing, powder coating. We outsource the process of hot zinc coating and electroplating. Finishing process carried out in our factory is silk screen printing applied by printing of backboards that compose the part of many basketball units or are sold as individual product.
Product safety is always taken into consideration already through the design process and later during each production step.
Wherever applicable, products comply with the safety norms and are certified by Polish Institute of Sport.
