Hvem er vi

Det unike blir lagt merke til, og design er derfor viktig for oss og våre kunder. Vi ønsker å ta menneskers behov og ønsker på alvor. Derfor er FLEXIBLE WORKSPACES selve kjernen i Svenheims identitet. Både i produkt og i arbeidsform. Vi leverer fleksible løsninger til store og små prosjekter.

For oss gir fleksibelt design nye og spennende løsninger. Et moderne formspråk og en solid konstruksjon som er skapt for fremtidens kontor. Vi har utviklet nye konstruksjonsteknikker som møter morgendagens krav til funksjonalitet og design.

Med våre fleksible løsninger er det kort vei fra idé til installert produkt hos kunden. Alle materialer og overflater er tilgjengelige hos oss, så lenge råvarene kan skaffes til veie. Ingen begrensninger. Våre kundeveiledere har alle bred og mangeårig erfaring med kontormøbler, og har den faglige tyngden som behøves i ethvert prosjekt.

Dette gjenspeiler seg også i våre kontormøbelserier. Enten du velger fra Factor, Vesta, Optima, Tellus eller Titan har du mange valgmuligheter og kombinasjoner.

Historie

venheim Møbelindustri AS ble startet på Osterøy utenfor Bergen i 1956. Bedriften var i mange år underleverandør av salongbord til andre produsenter.

I 1992 flyttet vi til større lokaler i Lunde i Telemark. Kundemassen for underleveranser hadde økt, og produktspektret utvidet til å gjelde komponenter til blant annet kjøkken og bad. I 1996 kjøpte vi konkursboet (maskiner, varelager og  produktrettigheter) etter Huseby Møbler AS. Samme år lanserte vi vår egen kolleksjon av kontormøbler. Siden starten av 2000- tallet har vi også levert prosjekt- og butikkinnredninger, blant annet det landsomfattende Post i Butikk- konseptet.

I 2002 kjøpte vi et fabrikkbygg på 50 000m2 i Alytus i Litauen, som vi gradvis har utviklet til å bli en komplett produksjonsenhet: UAB Svenheim.  I 2003 ble konkursboet etter Huseby Kjøkken kjøpt opp.

I dag er vi møbelkonsernet Svenheim Gruppen.

How it all began

Small farm hustle and the starting ground

On a small farm Svenheim on Osterøy, to the Northeast, spent his days peacefully Knut Andersen Svenheim. He had a small farm, and animals in it, as the nearby provided timber and firewood for the heating.

Svenheim started off in a modest working space. After welcoming his son back home in 1944, Anders Svenheim bought a lathe and “downgraded” his workplace to the basement. There, they produced first table lamps and wooden barrels.

Focusing on the family business

Few years later, Anders relocated to the first factory, which he had built himself. He began to deliver birch cutting boards, plate shelves, chairs, and window frames to Husfliden in Bergen soon after that.

In 1954, Anders’ son moved back home to Svenheim. All the knowledge learnt in school, Knut Magne put into a good practice.

The authentic process

The team started with veneering in 1956, and the equipment was primitive: wooden block clamps and thick zinc plates for heating an oven. First, the horn glue was heated and applied to the plates with a putty knife. Then, they put a hot zinc plate into the block clamps, a veneer sheet, a chipboard, a veneer sheet, and then a hot zinc plate; then pressed this together with the block clamps. The heat from the zinc sheets pulled through the veneer, and melted the glue to adhere to the veneer sheets. The plates were pressed until the zinc plates had cooled down so that the horn glue had stiffness again. The horn glue was produced on Alvøen outside Bergen.

Addition to the team

In 1959, the factory was enlarged again (E), and the employees joined the team. New investments were made , and later the family’s business began to use chipboard as a core material.

Later, father and son Svenheims started to produce coffee tables. After the triumphant start, coffee tables have become their main product.

New horizons

More investments were made, yet coffee tables remained their main product. As the business went prosperously, there was a necessity for new work tools. Eventually, in 1980, the company moved to a 300 m3 warehouse (I). In 1986 Knut Magne established a furniture store in the centre of Lonevåg.

A valuable partnership

From 1987, the company began supplying components as a subcontractor to other manufacturers. Bolett Kjøkken, Ekornes and Helland appeared on the customer record, which was a tremendous achievement. In collaboration with HBH Møbelfabrikk, the business delivered hotel furnishings to Amsterdam and Brussels’ SAS.

Expanding their grounds

In September 1992, the entire company was moved to Lunde in Telemark, wherein 1991, Swedoor had closed down its doors. In 1995, the company started manufacturing office furniture, and eventually it became their central focus. In 2000, the company operated with office furniture as its primary product and sub deliveries.
