Creativity, high aesthetics, timelessness
Bringing luxury and elegance in the kitchen
Kitchen furniture firm Gruppo Cucine has been identified by founder Constantinos Leventakis’ creativity, sensitivity and insight since its inception. Constantinos’ goal, in addition to constructing kitchen furniture, was to add beauty and elegance to the daily life of hundreds of families. The company’s experience may be now counting several years, but its vision remains the same: “to use our craftsmanship and creativity to make the lives of our fellow human beings more beautiful, offering them unique kitchens to enjoy moments of happiness with their loved ones.” Gruppo Cucine has established itself as a leader in the Greek market as a result of the unique, modern and quality Italian kitchen furniture it offers, as well as the personal and timeless relationships of trust it has built throughout its operation.
Furthering the vision and course of the family business he founded together with his father Constantinos and his siblings Sofia and Aris, George Leventakis (CEO and Co-Founder), succeeded in just a few years to develop the firm and triple its size in terms of network and human resources, creating a leading kitchen furniture brand in Greece. He considers Soft Skills as his associates’ most cherished qualifications: empathy, awareness, positive energy, hard work, teamwork, and cooperation – always seeking to be useful and constructive for society, the environment and fellow human beings.
In 2009, following a growth in customers and associates, Gruppo Cucine moved its facilities to a new 700-sqm, state-of-the-art building in Egaleo, while since 2019 it operates a new, ultramodern showroom in Glyfada. The firm has a number of warehouses throughout Greece to allow prompt service to clients, saving them extra costs. In addition, the company operates stores in the Athens suburbs of Chalandri and Voula.
Corporate social responsibility
Gruppo Cucine’s environmental sensitivity is proven by the fact that all the factories it represents use fully recyclable, certified, environmentally-friendly and human-safe materials, in addition to being 100% solar-powered. All products are certified and approved for indoor use according to the strictest international standards, as the same products are also exported to more than 80 countries worldwide, with even stricter standards than Greece. As part of its corporate social responsibility, Gruppo Cucine undertakes to plant a tree for each kitchen furniture set sold. Thus, the energy consumed to create the furniture returns to nature, where it belongs.
Technology & COVID-19
Gruppo Cucine invests in the use of modern technology and offers new ways of communication and service to its customers. The special conditions as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, allowed the firm to put in full use the digital services that it already had, and was in a position to suggest to clients an online and safe approach to designing the kitchen of their dreams! The online design application significantly reduced the purchase decision time, enhancing the firm’s flexibility, especially in cities such as Athens. At the same time, clients in more remote locations were given the option to design and buy their kitchen furniture from the comfort of their home. In addition, online services meant a welcome cut in travelling costs. The online design option was available even before the Covid-19 lockdown period, but its daily and more intensive use gave birth to new ideas on enhancing the quality and speed of communication that we will see in the future.
In kitchen design, overlooking the special needs of either the main user or any other family member is regarded a common mistake. Gruppo Cucine places emphasis on examining individualized needs per case, in order to provide solutions that cover the ergonomic needs of multiple users of the same kitchen. Focusing on a human-centered design, the firm suggests optimum solutions for all types of consumers, including groups of fellow citizens with special abilities and skills.
