OUR PRODUCTION UNITS

Kinnarps has six production facilities in Sweden. Production and assembly are carried out in Kinnarp, Jönköping, Skillingaryd, Vinslöv, Tranås (2). The largest facility is located in Kinnarp.

OUR BLUE TRUCK CONCEPT

We take responsibility for our entire supply chain - from production to delivery. We can deliver and install over one hundred workstations, per customer, per day. Orders within Europe are completed in four to six weeks. We also deliver worldwide. Every day, 24 fully loaded containers leave our factories to deliver workspace solutions designed for prosperity and wellbeing. Instead of traditional packaging, we use blankets and cardboard to protect our furniture. The blankets and cardboard are then returned and reused time after time. This means a saving of 270 kg of packaging per container. Delivery routes are optimised using an advanced route planning system, which is linked to production. We’ve also invested in a modern fleet of eco-friendly vehicles to reduce our environmental impact. Each truck is manned by our Kinnarps fitters. On delivery, they carry in the furniture, unpack it and assemble it. The idea is that the customer has their furniture in place quickly and efficiently with minimum disruption.

OUR VALUES FORM OUR GREATEST IDEAS

"Our Core Values are important to us. They have a favorable effect on our business on many levels - right from how we develop products to how we cooperate with people. They're a direct heritage from my parents, Evy and Jarl Andersson, and contribute to our company’s success."

 

Sibylla Jacobsson, Chairman of the Board, Kinnarps Holding AB
