Experience needs history
Furniture is our craft since 1915.
Individuality and craftsmanship have been the hallmarks of our furniture production since the company was founded in 1915. From a basket maker to a modern furniture company. As much as the technology and requirements have changed, we have never neglected one thing: the region and the craft.
We continue to stand by the Borgentreich location, where we continue to lay the foundation for the future of our company through training in technical and commercial professions.
We have been committed to this tradition since 1915.
