Aktin sp. z o.o.
Aktin sp. z o.o. – a new dimension in education
Aktin is a family business with a 25-year history, made up of a father, two daughters, their husbands, and employees whose core has been with them for several years. Our strength lies in our mutual support, but also in the diversity of our interests. Together we are creating the school of the future. We design friendly, ergonomic and modern classrooms. Each of them is created from scratch by a team of people working closely together. The basis of our success is the ability to play to one goal. A salesman has to listen to the needs of the school to select the optimal solution, an interior designer and a graphic designer create the design and visualisation, which is produced to order and then assembled on site at the school. We are constantly introducing new technologies to schools. From the largest education fair in Europe, we brought back the idea of using virtual and mixed reality in multi-subject teaching. Visualisation of places in 360′ mode, three-dimensional objects and a beating heart at your fingertips – all of this takes lessons into a completely different dimension. We call ourselves the Pink Actin Family and this is the atmosphere we create every day at work. We change the school to make it modern and inspiring. We are a team!
