Skovby furniture is made from natural materials, selected with consideration and respect for nature, environment and people.
Wood is one of the most sustainable and lasting resources that exists. Sustainable forests in Europe and North America are increasing. Wood that we obtain from such forests is replaced, which supports preservation of ecosystem diversity. Our excess wood is used as fuel. All wood chips and shavings are utilized for heating our premises and contribute to a positive carbon-dioxide accounting and make up a valuable resource in our pursuit of a carbon neutral production.
A healthy work environment where employees are supported, thrive and wish to stay for many years, is what makes it possible for us to develop products that match our high quality requirements. Skovby is therefore happy and proud to be celebrating many both 25- and 40- year employee anniversaries.
As a member of the Danish Furnituremakers' Quality Control Skovby is part of an exclusive network of 17 Danish furniture companies, which invest time and resources to push the agenda on sustainable operations, to be equipped to handle the highest standards and requirements for durability and to secure skilled labour in the future.
It pays to design, construct and produce furniture within the same physical environment. By doing so we achieve cohesion that contributes to a sustainable business model. This is good for our business, environment and people.
By keeping all production under one roof, we achieve strong involvement and broad representation of interdisciplinary competencies, which are all within short-range from initial idea to finished product. Our products
are developed through close interaction between cabinetmakers, technicians and the company architect. And together they pursue to reach new heights with multifunctional and lasting designs.
The road from raw materials to production is short. Raw materials are not transported unnecessarily between locations to and during production. Many raw materials are from neighbouring areas – everything that is available locally, is obtained and employed locally.
