Many large international corporations started their journey with small premises (as a rule, they choose a garage) and ambitious tasks. Dragonfly company also at the beginning of its journey (2011) huddled in a small room in one of the production zones of Yekaterinburg.
It all started with balaclavas, or rather, their absence. Maxim and Alexandra Sobolev founded the Dragonfly company. Arriving at the store for balaclavas, they were surprised by the prices for these products that are not too difficult to manufacture. Alexandra, being a fashion designer by education decided to make a balaclava herself. After a fairly short time the Sobolevs launched a small workshop and began selling balaclavas, and a little later raincoats through their online store and motorcycle dealerships. While establishing sales, they met Rinat Fatykhov, who was so imbued with the idea that he became a co-owner of the company.
With the advent of Rinat in 2013 a range of products was expanded and in addition to balaclavas and raincoats, complex products have been appeared (the first winter suits) as well as production volume tripled.
In 2015, the Sobolevs concentrated their efforts in a new direction, and their place in Dragonfly was taken by Viktor Utkin, who became CEO and majority shareholder. He directed his extensive experience in management activities to setting up business processes.
Completing the next round of its development, the Company from the city where the borders of Europe and Asia intersect, reaches a new level.
