About the owners

The future of Stilles has been in the hands of the Polovič family since 2010, when they gained a 100% share in the company through their own company, AFP d.o.o., Dobova. The successful family tradition of entrepreneurship that was started in 1968 by Franc Polovič, Sr, and his son, Franc, Jr, has been continued by Aleksander Polovič as a representative of the third generation. Today, AFP is a well-established trading company whose principal activity is the sale of textiles and sporting goods.  The family has always had an appreciation for manufacturing companies. Being forest owners, they have a special relationship with wood as a natural resource. All of this, combined with their respect for Stilles’s tradition, led them to the decision to invest in the company.

In collaboration with the company’s management, they set out a long-term development and business strategy for the company. The company’s long tradition and the know-how and experience of its employees give them complete faith in Stilles’s long-term potential.
