Open house at Qualisa
Our Latin American division, called Latin Selections S.A., recently opened the new
showhouse. In this showhouse the latest Preesman selection is being presented.
During the last year Preesman has focussed on forming an entire new assortment
to present in this showhouse, seperated from any discussion in the market.
