Process

Our mechanism production facility increases our operational agility because we are able to develop and reconfigure its complexes to meet evolving consumer demand for various product categories. All foam materials are made with our own innovative formula, guaranteeing the quality from the source while wood materials are sourced from internationally recognized, well-managed, sustainability protected forests. Raw materials, such as leather and fabric, are not only rigorously tested in house, but have been additionally tested in third party labs such as STC and SGS to ensure the utmost quality.
