Summary

Summary: 
A German carpenter is specialized in designing and producing furniture for interior design. He focuses on three living spaces: massive wood kitchen, saunas with bathroom/spa area and furniture/built-in furniture for living rooms, bedrooms and entrances. He seeks partners for a manufacturing agreement from Slovenia, Czech Republic, Poland, Romania, Bulgaria.

Description

Description: 

The company from Lower Bavaria has been established in 2002 and has since then expanded its activities in interior fittings. It is specialized in traditionally wooden furniture, individually manufactured according to the clients needs. During the design phase the company uses 3D plans to fit the furniture as perfect as possible in the surrounding. Its preferred material is swiss stone pine (pinus cembra) as it has a perfect grown wood and the essential oils have a positive effect on the indoor climate. In addition to pine wood the company uses oak, beech, maple and softwood as fir, larch and alder.
Due to the fact that the company is growing in all of its three sectors it already is engaged in cross-border activities. As orders are increasing in the built-in furniture division, the company is looking for an additional manufacturer within the scope of a manufacturing agreement that enables the company to meet the increased demand. Its geographical focus for its partner search is Slovenia as the swiss stone pine grows in Carinthia and can easily be delivered from this part of Austria to Slovenia which shortens the transportation route. However the other above mentioned countries are target countries either.
