Our focus is on innovative design and on making it a reality in our factory in Tranås in an uncompromising way. But we are also extremely committed to the environment and social responsibility. One simple way to protect the environment is to use local suppliers as this reduces haulage distances.
We do this at all times when we can. Substantially more complicated work is carried out using the Möbelfakta product labelling system. To comply with their demands, our manufacturing processes and our suppliers and sub-suppliers must be approved in terms of wages and working environment. As we believe this is an important issue, we go to great lengths to inspect and review our suppliers, both in Sweden and abroad, to ensure they comply with the regulations in force.
We are also certified according to ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 as are most companies in this sector. However we are a cut above the rest with our FSC® (Forest Stewardship Council) certification, which means the wood used in our furniture is sourced from forests that are managed in a responsible manner. Sensitive forests are not touched and trees that are important from a biological diversity perspective are never felled. The certification regulates the entire chain, from protecting flora and fauna to the working conditions for those working with felling, sawing and transporting of wood. All these steps are inspected by FSC® so that you always know you are getting a certified product.
Finally, we are proud to have met the requirements of the OHSAS 18001 standard. This is an international certification for occupational health and safety, which certifies our compliance with all work environment legislation and that we work actively to ensure commitment, well-being and safety towards our staff. This certification also includes a review of our management system, which helps us to develop our business and become an even better workplace in the future.
