BEHIND THE SCENES
OF OUR COMPANY

QBL Systems

Our Story

QBL was founded in 2004 by Wojciech Śliwka, the ski instructor and a two-time Polish champion in mountain biking - one of the major pioneers of this sport. Initially, the company’s activity was based on running ski rentals and a ski school in the Beskid Mountains, but later on, it focused on manufacturing. A great passion for skiing combined with the knowledge of the sports industry and experience in managing ski rental shops resulted in the creation of the first specialized products. Full commitment to the design of top quality ski storage and drying systems brought immediate results. Over last years, the company’s production potential has increased several times and a team of people that share the same values, goals and ambitions has gathered around the company’s founder. Today QBL Systems has an extensive, dynamically developing distribution network and implements winter sports infrastructure projects in more than 30 countries worldwide. The quality of QBL products has been confirmed by international experts and the prestigious ISPO Award Winner in 2014 and 2019.
