In 2018 we started looking for a second partner for the production of our natural stone bracelets. Gemini imports stone pearls and uses it to manufacture bracelets, which in turn are exported worldwide. We have been working together with a social enterprise in Hasselt since 2013, and were looking for a new partner that could handle higher volumes but at the same time could continue to guarantee handmade quality.
A partnership with MIVAS proved to be just what we were looking for : they have the right infrastructure such as unloading docks, packing machines and storage space. In addition, they brought our quality to a higher level through the experience they gained with large, international customers. As a Flemish SME, we benefit from the investments made in large companies. MIVAS is a real catalyst, which means that we have tripled our production in less than 1 year.
