The product range of the house reaches in detail from grit to the wedding carriage, from Christmas balls to animal dummies. The distribution takes place classically via catalog, increasingly via the online store or in case of special requests in project form. This may involve a modification of a decoration concept, creative requests or seasonal decorations, the design of an action area, the renewal of shop window figures or the presentation of a product in the phase of market launch.
Because in the eyes of Wolfram Liebhard, abama Display Art Director, valuable, artful and stylish decoration is being neglected today, he pleads for a return to quality and individuality. Consultation on site at the customer plays a particularly important role. "Some of the articles are comparable", says Liebhard, "that's why we invest in service". Apart from interesting conditions, concerning delivery times and transport, these are decoration suggestions and decoration examples or decoration concepts, references to the applicability as well as training for packing and decorating.
The tougher conditions in the retail trade are also affecting suppliers of decorative materials. Since the recession in 2000, abama has also had to adapt its products, marketing and sales to the rapidly changing market. Abama is becoming more and more modern, high-quality, individual, creative and up-to-date. In order to be able to react faster to trends, for example, the creative team was expanded. Thus the development phase from sketch to model is shortened from a few months to a few weeks. Today it is in demand to think like a visual merchandiser. Application examples shall prove how well abama can do this. Modern Christmas decorations for high-quality shop window decoration are therefore no longer religious or Santa Claus-like, but rather translucent, monochrome, winter white and crystalline for a festive atmosphere - embedded in a coherent, harmonious interplay of materials, colors and functions.
