Launched in 1978, the furniture factory we work with is a testament to the idea
of organic growth. What began as a carpentry workshop serving the needs of the
local community has grown steadily since the owner’s sons joined the
business, and brought in their entrepreneurial attitude.
The factory now employs over 200 employees and, as the owner’s son puts it, “it’s
the combination of my father’s expertise in wood and my flair for business that won
us international clients and brought the workshop to a new scale.” Over 30 years
after it was founded, the factory still takes orders for made-to-measure furniture from
private clients, but the core of the business has moved elsewhere. Equipped with the
new technology, it now specializes in working with plywood, and that’s why we have
the certainty that our furniture is in professional hands.
The factory has the equipment and know-how to meet the requirements of the tylko
production process – that is, to produce one-off pieces based on the specifications
that are sent directly from the app the moment an order is placed. The CNC machine
is programmed according to these specs and does most of the job itself. Its precision
in cutting is top notch, and has to be so, given that the parts will be slid into each
other and the fit has to be perfect. Finishing touches are added by hand, and every
shelf is assembled in the factory for quality control.
Though experts in plywood, the factory team has retained a sentiment for wood,
which they still work with on a daily basis. The manufacturing process of our
sycamore furniture is the same, but the finish is different. The wood only gets a layer
of water base lacquer to best preserve its light color.
