It’s here that things get real
We endeavour to run a small-scale, efficient manufacturing facility in which a high level of technology goes hand in hand with craftsmanship in a way that distinguishes Stolab. We do this by investing in employee expertise and combining valuable craftsmanship with investments in modern manufacturing technology that suits our needs and demands on quality. This allows us to ensure that we will be able to continue to offer a competitive manufacturing facility in Sweden, even in the future. Manufacturing that also entails a creative environment for product development and a healthy working environment for our employees.
Sustainability a prerequisite
Thinking sustainably is not just something we chose to do but is a prerequisite. It is therefore also something we really take seriously, but also think is fun and inspirational. Our high sustainability demands mean that we surround ourselves with suppliers, employees and customers with the same sustainability values.
In-house manufacturing means full control of the entire chain
Our own manufacturing facility in Smålandsstenar ensures we can have full control of the entire value chain. All inbound materials are checked. We carry out and assess every step in our manufacturing facility, in addition to certain elements carried out by specialists in their field, and we conduct a final check and pack the furniture.
Sustainability is also about having a healthy working environment where employees are happy and satisfied.
Our aim is not to throw away any materials, if it is possible to use them in any way. Any materials that cannot be used to make a new furniture detail and the sawdust from sawing, drilling and milling are used primarily to fuel our own boiler. As a result we are completely self-sufficient when it comes to fuel.
We used 16,000 waste pieces in our manufacturing facility in 2018 that would otherwise have been discarded. We have, for example, recycled table tops and turned these into chair back spindles, seats and shelves.
