Our History

Furniture since 1967

The history of KVIST Industries goes more than three centuries back, as our production of wooden furniture dates all the way back to 1896, when the factory's name at this point in the history was Tarm Stole og Møbelfabrik placed in Tarm, Denmark.

In 1967, Arne Kvist establishes the company Årre Facon Spænd in Årre, Denmark. Through the years, the company was going through joint ventures, merging and buying other companies whereas Tarm Stole og Møbelfabrik is one of those. During the twentieth century, the company played an important role in developing the Danish and international furniture industry.

In 2013, the company changes its name to KVIST Industries and is owned by shares of the brothers Michael and Søren Kvist, Jens Bach Mortensen, CEO of Kvist Industries, Industry Udvikling, and LGP Holding. The company is set up by a Board of Directors with Arne Kvist as the honourable member.

Today

In the recent years we have been able to move from being the supplier and subcontractor towards being a full-service partner to our customers. We are still manufacturing a wide range of high-quality furniture in wood and a mix of steel, upholstery and plastic, and provide the full range of services from the earliest stage in developing a prototype to the final logistics, full supply chain setup to business counselling.

Our goal for today and the future is to strengthen the sustainable and circular economy by continuing to expand KVIST into offering recyclable materials, flat-pack, Eco-labeling, FSC®, water-based paint, etc.

Creating values for our customers across the entire value chain operating as a strategic “one-stop-shop partner” is the most important point for us. We strive to be the preferred value chain partner and we strongly believe that sustainable furniture equals high-quality furniture and should support longevity with reduced need for energy and resources.
