Summary

Summary: 
This Polish company operates in the furniture industry and specialises in the production of furniture components. They manufacture furniture fronts, bent elements, cornices, pelmets and other furniture parts made of solid wood, veneered materials or MDF. The firm is looking for distributors and is also ready to supply a partner with products under a manufacturing agreement.

Description

Description: 

A company from northwestern Poland has been operating in the furniture industry for nearly 30 years. They specialise in the production of furniture fronts and components. The products used to be handcrafted, but now they are manufactured in a new production facility that has around 12,000 square metres and is equipped with modern machinery. The company has some experience cooperating with foreign partners from UK, Germany, Ukraine and Russia.

The firm offers:
- furniture fronts,
- bent elements,
- cornices, pelmets and other trimmings,
- other furniture parts.
The products are made of solid wood (i.a. oak, ash, pine, walnut, cherry, alder, birch), veneered materials or MDF. The company has its own design office, machining and veneering equipment, a paint shop and a drying room. All the materials are selected carefully so that the final products are of the highest quality and crafted in an environment-friendly manner.

The company aims to diversify its markets and partners in order to lessen dependence on the current ones. Therefore they are interested in a mutually beneficial cooperation under the manufacturing agreement with furniture manufacturers. A role of a partner will be to specify the type, basic parameters, and quantity of the requested product(s).
