Company policy

We have been producing innovative and high-quality articles for 80 years on the basis of four guiding principles

Safety & Quality

When we develop children’s furniture, safety ranks first. It is therefore primarily important for us to implement latest standards and norms into the design and feature of our products. An experienced team of highly motivated staff guarantees with state-of-art technologies and continuous supervision during production the very best quality.

Environment

In order to avoid environmental pollution, environmentally compatible raw materials form the basis for our long-lasting products. We attach importance to short supply routes by using woods from domestic forests. In strict accordance with judicial obligations and requirements, the entire production is orientated towards eco-friendliness.
The use of stable valued, low-polluting materials as well as the recycling of surplus is taken into consideration during our manufacturing process.

Sustainability

Besides the knowledge that the raw material processed by us – wood – grows again, our furniture offers flexible solutions for long-term use. Therefore, continual improvements and optimizations in the manufacturing process are our daily effort. Timeless design, top-quality materials and first class manufacturing guarantee long durability and long-lasting fun with our products. That is what we understand by practised sustainability.

Design
