Summary: 
Slovenian SME active in the furniture industry, particularly in the supply of rotary cut veneer and sliced veneer as well as in the design and supply of furniture parts, semi-finished products and components including chair legs, parts of armrests and curved plywood – shells, seats and backs, is looking for business opportunities (manufacturing and subcontracting agreements) with European companies.

Description

Description: 

The SME, established in 1991, is active in the furniture industry. Since its establishment, the traditional activity of the company was focused on the commerce with wood, precisely the sale of veneer, manufactured components as well as other products made from different tree types and intended primarily for the furniture industry.

The core business of the company is currently represented by the processing of veneer into chair legs, wooden armrests, bench seats, components for chairs, shell chairs and tables, and other semi-finished products for the furniture industry in general. Based on customers’ needs, the company is able to supply a wide range of customized semi-finished products and intermediate goods, including moulded, curved and bent plywood components in different wood qualities – for upholstery, stained, oil treated or lacquered ones.

In designing and manufacturing semi-finished products, the company makes use of both traditional and innovative technologies (e.g. the latest high frequency pressing techniques). Based on its experience and know-how, the company is willing to supply semi-finished goods to foreign companies on their demand, or manufacture them in its own manufacturing plants in Slovenia and Bosnia. The company is particularly interested in finding new business opportunities abroad – under the form of manufacturing agreements or subcontracting agreements in the European markets.
