Ladies and Gentlemen,


Furniture industry in Poland is one of the most competitive
departments of industry processing, generating approximately
2 per cent of the Polish GDP. Almost ninety per cent of the
furniture produced in our country is exported. Furniture products
find their consumers in Germany, France, Czech Republic, Great
Britain, Holland, Spain, Italy and the United States.
Going towards the expectations of European entrepreneurs,
the Ministry of Economy has prepared a special promotion
campaign titled Created in Poland. There are two companies responsible for its preparation and realization Poznan
International Fair and The Polish Chamber of Commerce of
Furniture Manufacturers.
This campaign is a part of The promotion of the Polish economy
on international markets program, whose main objective is to
present Polish innovative products and companies. The program
includes Poland, Ukraine, Germany, Russia, France and Great
Britain. We hope it will facilitate developing co-operation between
furniture-oriented firms and institutions in the whole Europe.

I would like to encourage you to get familiar with the offer of the
Polish companies during the European trade fair, economic missions, trainings and conferences, as well as study visits of foreign
journalists and contractors. All these events will take place within
the program for furniture industry promotion.
I am convinced that direct meetings and participation in
specialist trainings and conferences will help us understand the
specifity of cooperation with Polish companies better and open
to an even greater extent for mutual business relations.
Wishing you fruitful cooperation, I present you with a catalogue
showing the successes of the Polish furniture branch. I am fully
convinced that it will also serve as a practical guide facilitating
the development of cooperation with Polish producers.

Ladies and Gentlemen,

Ladies and Gentlemen,

I cordially invite you to get familiar with the offer of Polish


furniture branch companies during the European trade fairs
in Poznan, Cologne, Bad Salzuflen, Moscow, Kiev, Paris and
Birmingham. The presentations of the Polish companies are
a part of a promotion campaign of Polish furniture industry
which is carried out under the title of Created in Poland within
the actions of The promotion of the Polish economy on international markets program by the Ministry of Economy.

Over the period of the last twenty years, the Polish furniture industry
has progressed to a narrow circle of the leaders of furniture export
in the whole world. Almost 90 per cent of the furniture produced
in Poland gets delivered to foreign markets. Unfortunately, for
a foreign distributor, Polish furnitures existence is still not very
significant in terms of a producer brand.

I have the pleasure to present you with this invitation on behalf of Poznan International Fair, the company, promoting
the Polish furniture industry abroad for as long as 30 years
already, which has again been given the opportunity to prepare
the presentations promoting the Polish furniture branch in
the abovementioned greatest fair cities of Europe.
I would like to assure you that we are at your disposal and we
will provide you with any necessary support in order to develop
business contacts with Polish furniture producers.

Being concise, professionally prepared, and consequently


implemented by the consortium of OIGPM and MTP, the trade
promotion program has nowadays become a key instrument in
the development of the Polish brand abroad. The main motive
of the campaign focuses around examples of successful furniture
producers who export goods and services of the highest quality.
I cordially invite you to meet during fairs, economic missions,
trainings, as well as to participate in conferences and study
visits for journalists and contractors. I am convinced that with our
support, you will come across the great potential of the Polish
furniture industry while developing new business contacts.

POLISH FURNITURE PRESENT GLOBALLY


FOR A LONG TIME
In prestigious spots, as well as in places of everyday activity of average people. With prestigious customers, but also in the public area.
On the land, and on the sea. Polish furniture is present in lots of private
houses and flats, mansions and palaces, libraries and schools, colleges
and universities, municipality buildings, offices, hotels, pubs, cafes and
restaurants, and even in TV studios and cinema theatres, in such countries as Australia, Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Croatia, Denmark,

Estonia, France, Greece, Holland, Israel, Japan, Canada, Kazakhstan,


Korea, Lithuania, Latvia, Moldova, Germany, Norway, Poland, Russia,
Sweden, Switzerland, Ukraine, the USA, Italy, Hungary, Great Britain and
the United Arab Emirates. In 2011 Polish furniture were delivered to
160 countries globally, and deliveries worth over a million dollars
to as many as 60 countries. [Black Red White, Nowy Styl (New Style),
Forte, Szynaka Meble (Szynaka Furniture), Wjcik, Profim].

POLISH FURNITURE
IN EXCEPTIONAL PLACES
Congress halls, where multiple European summits took place, were
equipped with Polish furniture [COM40, MDD, AEK Design], and
Vladimir Putin, who appreciates quality and is well known for his fondness of comfort, is an owner of a Polish leather couch [Kler]. Hosting
lots of famous people, La Petite restaurant in Majestic Hotel in Cannes
is a place where Polish furniture can be found [Paged]. It can also be
found in the Presidential Palace in Paris [Paged]. The premiere of the first
iPhone model in Germany also occurred with the use of representative
furniture produced by a Polish furniture manufacturer. The furniture
was placed in all German shops selling iPhone during its peak interest
[Meble Joczyk (Joczyk Furniture)]. During the biggest furniture fair
in the world Salone del Mobile 2012 in the Museum of Temporary Art
in the prestigious Piu Superstudio in Milan, such spots as Press Room,
VIP Room, corridors, and the main hall were all equipped with furniture
produced by a Polish manufacturer [Noti]. Also, the representatives
of Russian highest authorities relaxing in Park Inn Pribaltiyskaya in Saint

Petersburg take advantage of furniture of Polish production [Tombea,


Bizzarto]. During the Polish presidency over the Council of European
Union, special furniture for this occasion, which were a combination
of traditional, natural materials with modern pattern-designing and
technologically-advanced innovative solutions were presented in the
atrium and the representative interiors of Justus Lipsius edifice the
headquarters of General Secretary Office of the Council of European
Union in Brussels [Paged, Com40]. Thousands of salons and selling
points dealing furniture produced in Poland located around the globe,
trade branch offices of Polish furniture companies, their logistic centers
are yet another reason to state that Polish furniture is everywhere from
Washington to Moscow via Brussels, and from Moscow to Washington
via Singapore.

MODERN
PRODUCTION PROCESS
Modernity in every respect of the production process
is one of the assets of furniture produced in Poland;
it is decisive of its popularity, quality, and endurance.
The trend of investing in IT innovations, the latest technology and
devices has for many years been the development and success
factor of furniture manufacturers in Poland. And even if the peculiarity
of produced furniture requires taking advantage of traditional technology,
it is done with the use of systematically-upgraded machines, devices,
and work organization systems. Computer systems of production operation used in Polish companies include integrated software, which enables
efficient task performance from the moment of taking an order, through
making a design, assembly manual, production preparation, production
supervision, material consumption optimization, storing and dispatch,
to servicing procedures. Numerical devices together with their modern
software used for furniture production, which are common with Polish
manufacturers, give the guarantee of precision and rational use of materials.

MODERN
MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS
Certified quality management systems, most often ISO 9000, guard the
performance standard at big companies of furniture industry in Poland.
Productivity, efficiency, and production humanization are supported by
systems by REFA methodology (REFA Bundesverbande.V.) A production
process is most often monitored by ERP/MRP II systems. The companies
like BPSC, IFS are among the biggest suppliers of advanced IT solutions
of ERP / MRP II to companies of various organization structures.

In the furniture industry companies like Atlas Meble Kuchenne (Atlas


Kitchen Furniture), Beskidzkie Fabryki Mebli (Beskidy Furniture Factory),
Com40, Deftrans, Dziedzic, Enkev, Fabryka Mebli Bodzio (Bodzio Furniture Factory), Gluck, Grupa Lubawa (Lubawa Group), Kaszub, Kler, Lupus,
M&K Foam, Matkowski, Nomet, Nowy Styl (New Style), Paged, Profim,
Pol-Skone, Sklejka-Eco, Wojtpol can all boast implemented systems.

MODERN DELIVERY
AND SERVICE LOGISTICS
Despite the fact that Polish furniture is delivered to customers in industrial quantities, which is confirmed by 2.4 m tonnes of exported furniture in
2010 (in comparison, furniture export in Germany and Italy reached 1.8 m
tonnes in each country), in most cases it was the furniture delivered on
special orders taken around Europe by individual clients. How is that
possible? Well, thanks to mass product customization systems, which
are a standard in the Polish furniture industry. They make it possible
to customize orders in hundreds of options and variants through textiles, colors, shape configurations, and the like. Modern systems of work,
management, and logistics used in the Polish industry are a warranty
of meeting deadlines of orders, deliveries, and versatile services.

The furniture ordered in Poland does not require ordering a whole container and waiting for production to fill it up completely, then be shipped,
and later trans-shipped. The delivery logistics in Poland today enables
delivering a piece of furniture within 48 hours in any place in the European Union as well as to the other countries in Europe. On Sunday
you can eat dinner somewhere in Europe at a table produced in Poland
on Friday. The biggest basin of furniture companies Greater Poland
is just 2.5 hours of a car drive off the center of Berlin. On the basis of
the border traffic agreement, the citizens of Russia, from the Kaliningrad
Oblast, can watch the production of furniture around Gdask, Elblg,
or Olsztyn without visas (the visa-free traffic covers the area up to 100 km
off the border).

FURNITURE COMPONENTS
AND ACCESSORIES AS A
CRUCIAL FACTOR DECISIVE
OF FURNITURE MODERNITY
It is without a doubt that materials, components, semi-finished furniture
products used for furniture production are decisive of its aesthetics, and
endurance. In this field as well, the Polish furniture industry is outstanding with respect to modernity, and diversity of its use and production.
The short time which elapses between the appearance of anything new
at components and accessories fair (Furnica in Pozna, SICAM in Pordenone, Interzum in Cologne, ZOW in Bad Salzuflen) and their usage in
production is the indicator of how Polish furniture manufacturers attach
significance to construction, materials, components, and semi-finished
furniture parts.
The highest-quality accessories and components for furniture are produced by hundreds of Polish companies like for example Astin, Bach,
Sigma BK, Organika, Gamet, Melako, and Rejs. Many of them offer solu-

Kitchen furniture set, Stolkar

tions for non-standard, complicated, and tough projects, at the same


time gaining recognition in Europe and around the world. With regard
to the clearly noticeable global trend that more and more customers want to buy a particular brand, produced from components
and by recognized companies, as well as in relation to splendor of
offers of components and accessories available in Poland, in this
case, the Polish furniture industry is at the highest worldwide level.

CONSTRUCTION
-TECHNOLOGY OFFICES
AN ASSET OF POLISH
FURNITURE INDUSTRY
Construction-technology offices which are capable of making arrangement projects of a particular interior or working out technological
solutions for the production of ready designs, as well as brand new innovatory solutions are a standard in Polish companies. All that occurs
with the use of modern 3D software, if necessary together with making
mock-ups, models printed on 3D printers, and even show-rooms.
A highly-specialized crew of Polish engineers, technologists,
programmers is generally able to cope with every single task.
Technological and design solutions for working out products on the

basis of individual customers projects; in other words, adjusting the


technological and design solutions to a precisely defined furniture is an
example of diverse capabilities of the Polish furniture-making.
It is illustrated by examples of companies which are well-known on
European market [Tagemt, Filipek Design]. Construction offices of
Polish companies are able to realize dearest arrangements. Vennesla
Library in Norway is an interesting example of their capabilities, and so
are the newest football stadiums such as Stadion Narodowy (National
Stadium) in Warsaw [Forum Seating], terminal 2 at Chopin Airport in
Warsaw [Meble Roja], prestigious hotels [Paged, Bejot, Lege, Artis],
development realizations [Janmar].

CENTURIES-OLD EXPERIENCE
AND CRAFT TRADITION
Centuries-old production experience of the Polish furniture companies
is yet another crucial factor decisive of the quality and endurance of
the furniture produced in Poland. A lot of companies known for its production around Europe have an over one-hundred-year-old tradition
an example of that being Bydgoskie Meble (1884), FAMOS (1852),
FAMEG (1881), Paged Meble (1881); also, many Polish family-like companies such as Zakad Stolarski Meble Joczyk present in Dobrodzie
since 1893 has been run by the family representatives for five genera-

tions. Resulting from the history experience and practice have an immense influence upon the quality of work, just as is the case with the
production of elements requiring manual work, like for example exclusive furniture. Moreover, the ethos of work resulting from craft tradition
gives a guarantee of solidity, reliability, and also carrying out this work.
Centuries-old tradition of furniture craft in Poland has formed
a special attitude towards the endurance, and the quality of the
produced furniture.

SYSTEM OF VALUES CHARACTERISTIC FOR


CRAFTSMANS WORK IS THE BASIS FOR POLISH
FURNITURE COMPANIES ACTIONS
A number of big Polish furniture companies, today often employing hundreds of workers and having a well-established position on European
market, used to be small craft businesses. And even though a lot has
changed when these were transformed into big enterprises, the system of values characteristic for a craftsman is still their basis of actions
[Balma, Kler, Lissy, Ludwik Styl, Meblonowak, Rust, Szynaka Meble,
Wajnert]. The location of Poland in the center of Europe, in the place
where the influences of East and West, North and South have been
crossing for centuries, is of great significance for the shaping of the
Polish furniture industry. An excellent example of how the connection
between Polish and European furniture-making have brought benefits
to the European furniture industry is presented by Michael Thonets
technology of bent furniture production, which has come to the Polish
land and has been developed here. In 1881, the sons of Michael Thonet
started a business in Radomsko called Bracia Thonet (Thonet brothers), which still acts under the name FAMEG, as well as in Jasienica
which is todays Paged Meble. It is in fact Paged Meble which developed Thonets technology and today is the only producer worldwide to
have mastered and implemented square bent pieces. It is the globallyfamous chair of the 8291 family that comes from Paged Mable, from
the factory in Jasienice. For more than 130 year this company has specialized in the production of bent chairs.

Kitchen furniture, Majchrzak

On the basis of furniture tradition, a furniture basin has grown around


Radomsko. Another interesting example proving connections between
the history and the modern furniture industry is the cluster of Meble
Elblg (Halex, Jar-Stol, Kam, Krismar, Layman, Lupus, Stolzen), and some
of the biggest companies in Poland: Fabryka Mebli Wjcik, and Stolpyt.
These companies are in the region, which can be considered the cradle
of the famous, historical Gdask furniture richly decorated furniture
referring to the style of northern baroque and English rococo.

Thonet bent chairs, Paged Meble

Dobrodzie, which used to be known as Guttenberg just a hundred


years ago, is yet another example of a centuries-old tradition of furniture and historical connections with European culture. There are many
more places with a long history of furniture production Gra Kalwaria
near Krakw (Cracow), Swarzdz and the area around Pozna, Kpno,
and Twardogra. Today the companies working practically around
Poland benefit from the splendor of historical heritage and cultural
connections with various regions of Europe.

THE MEANING OF
PRODUCTION PROCESS
FANTASY AND
PROFESSIONALISM
OF POLISH DESIGNERS
Polish design grows from a rich cultural background. Production process in Poland has been given a special rank from the moment of
information gathering, through proposing new solutions, their constant
analyzing and improving, until the production process. The success of
Polish furniture on global market is connected to a big extent with
design thinking, which is a discipline to have become a platform
for meetings between various scientists of a variety of experts of
different fields and designers, architects, and producers [Meble Vox].

Active research centers in Poland which specialize in design processes


use modern analytical methods, like for example behavioral or cognitive
analysis. Research and development (R&D) departments within certain
enterprises employ specialists in various fields including experts in furniture
ergonomics. Polish designers play crucial role in design processes.
Educated at the famous Polish and worldwide universities, working
in world-famous design offices and laboratories, and exhibiting their
projects around the world, they have a decisive influence upon the
aesthetical culture of the Polish furniture industry.
Numerous international awards confirm the position and authority of the
Polish designers. It is on regular basis that Polish designers are awarded
in Red Dot, the biggest and the most famous designer competition in
the world where 12 thousand companies and entities from 60 countries participate. Oskar Zita, Agata Kulik-Pomorska, Pawe Pomorski,
Renata Kalarus, Anna Vonhausen are among others the people to have
been presented with the Red Dot awards. It is also necessary to mention other designers whose position in the world of design is already
well-established: Tomek Rygalik, Tomasz Augustyniak, Piotr Kuchciski,
Grzegorz Niwiski, Jerzy Porbski, Anna Hrecka, Marta Krupiska, Krystian
Kowalski, Micha Biernacki, Jarosaw Szymaski, Piotr Wierczyski,
Maciej Zie, Ewa Minge. Among such a lot of popular and prestigious
contests in Poland it is Top Design, organized within Arena Design, which
is a part of furniture fair organized by Poznan International Fair.

VERSATILE OFFER,
DIVERSITY OF STYLES
It would be difficult to find a type or a kind of furniture which was
not produced in Poland. What the Polish furniture industry offers is:
upholstered furniture, bent furniture, kitchen, bathroom, office, living
room, dining room, bedroom furniture, medical furniture, furniture for
children rooms and for schools, wardrobes and storing systems, conference hall furniture, auditorium rooms furniture, furniture with higher
safety parameters allowed to be used in public areas, garden and recreation-amusement furniture, restaurant and hotel furniture, and furniture for sport structures and special tasks. What is more, there are at least

of Polish furniture and technologies have been patented in Europe and


around the world. More than a third of dining room and living room
furniture produced in Europe originates from Poland. Every fifth piece
of upholstered furniture produced in Europe is Polish.
This versatile offer diversity of the Polish furniture industry, on the other
hand, influences the diversity of the styles offered. In Poland, the manufactured furniture involve: classical and strictly designer furniture, from
country style to city look, in historical style and very modern, in Italian,
English, French, and Scandinavian styles.

CARE FOR NATURAL


ENVIRONMENT
Ecological awareness of the Polish furniture manufacturers is exceptionally high, and is manifested through trials to make the production of furniture industry the most waste-free possible. In cases where
furniture is produced from solid wood, the wood is a very precious
material at every step. Briquette and pellets ecological biofuel are
produced from sawdust. The chips are sold to wood-based board factories or pulp mills, whereas the bark is burnt in their own ecological
boiler plants or transferred for gardening purposes. The modern heat
and power stations, where energy is produced from the remaining biomass (chips and shavings), make the enterprises energy independent
in a way which is harmless for the natural environment. All the waste
is processed into electric energy and in Poland special emphasis is put
on the implementation of solutions which reduce harmfulness and
environmental nuisance, i.e. the emission of volatile organic compounds. For this reason, investments into the most modern solution in
Europe are carried out the CEFLA TIF-40 installation. It is just one out
of many other manifestations of active pro-ecological attitudes of the
Polish manufacturers. The other visible direction which the furniture
producers follow is eliminating materials coming from illegal sources by
means of FSC, PEFC accreditation as well as by means of the delivery
chains management.

95% of wood acquired for production in Poland comes from National


Forest, and only 5% from other sources it can be concluded that
practically all furniture companies in Poland process material deriving
from a certified source, and a lot of companies have FSC accredited production processes! Owing to the wood area certified by FSC in Poland
which equals 6 million 979 thousand hectares, it is worth mentioning
that around Europe only the bigger countries have more FSC certified forest Russia and Sweden, and PEFC certified Finland, Belarus,
Norway, and Germany.
The import of wood and lumber is little. On the basis of the data from
Forest Stewardship Council, more than a thousand of FSC and Chainof-Custody certificates have been awarded to Polish companies, including more than 320 which have been awarded to companies producing
furniture. PEFC certificates are less popular, as 49 have been issued for
Poland, including a few for furniture manufacturers. In Poland, approximately a half of the wood mass is taken advantage of, which grows in
the Polish forest continuously increasing forest resources. In ecologically-famous Scandinavia as much as 70-80% of an annual wood growth
is gained. Thus, stable and responsible forestry is maintained in Poland. The area of forest in Poland has increased by about 269 thousand
hectares over the last decade and by as much as 2 million 860 thousand
hectares over 75 years.

ATTESTATIONS,
CERTIFICATES, TESTS
AS A GUARANTEE OF
POLISH FURNITURE QUALITY
Not only do Polish manufacturers pay immense attention to ecology,
which is outstanding compared to the rest of the world, but also it is
impressive how they care for certificates, hygiene attestations and endurance checks, which are the guarantee of the quality of Polish furniture. Polish producers take the certification processes of their products
very seriously. About 90% of the furniture is exported. It is possible
due to meeting high ecological standards by Polish companies. The
regulations which are binding in Poland with respect to ecological
furniture parameters comply with the norms of the European Committee for Standardization the EN and ISO norms. The full scope of
norms has been binding since 2004 in case of Poland. Also, for 15 years
TVRheinland group, originating from Germany, has been present in
Poland, and is the authority in the field of testing and certification. It has
11 offices in many different parts of Poland and a group of more than

1000 experts and auditors. TVRheinland certifies furniture industry with respect to T+M and GS (Geprfte Sicherheit) signs. Additionally, there are 11 institutions accredited to test and certify the furniture.
One of them is Instytut Technologii Drewna (the Institute of Wood
Technology) in Pozna which runs the Laboratory of Wood Examination, Wood-based Materials, Packaging, Furniture, Construction and
Woodworking Machines. It is famous for its unusually high study standards, and its position is indicated by the fact that the paper it publishes
meets the strict requirements qualifying it for the ISI Master Journal List.
It is very often that Polish producers test their furniture directly on the
market, where the products are destined. They do it by means of the
German TV Sd, LGA Nrnberg, the Swiss SGS S.A., or the British FIRA
International Ltd.

ATTRACTIVE PRICES
AS MODERN PRODUCTION
PROCESS DERIVATIVE
The attention which Polish producers pay to ecological standards and
certification as well as other assets of Polish furniture does not affect
its prices. The prices of Polish furniture are lower by 28% on average
compared to other European Union countries and they have remained
leveled for some years.
Lower prices in the Polish furniture industry are the outcome of various purposeful actions run for this reason. A proper work and production organization, optimal materials management, experienced staff, as
well as advanced technologies led to the reduction of cost-consuming
production process factors in the Polish furniture industry.

For 20 years the Polish furniture industry has been strongly represented
at prestigious fairs and worldwide exhibitions. Polish furniture, as well
as accessories and furniture components can also be seen in Milan,
Cologne, Berlin, Moscow, Petersburg, and Kiev. As usual, these draw attention, are distinguished and rewarded. Quality, endurance, diversity,
aesthetics, comfort, and functionality are the features which have been
appreciated in the Polish furniture by its users around the world.
