Modus partners with Teknion

British workplace furniture specialist Modus has announced a partnership with Canadian furniture brand, Teknion.

The investment supports Modus’ international growth plans and expands Teknion’s portfolio of social and collaborative products, uniting two brands with a distinct design heritage and strong sustainability drive.

Canadian manufacturer Teknion has a history of building strategic partnerships that diversify its product offerings and draw on the unique strengths of its partners. Modus is the first British manufacturer to become a Teknion partner, and its manufacturing facility in Somerset enables Teknion to significantly reduce the carbon footprint of its products for the UK and European markets.

Established in 2000, Modus was a leading figure in the British furniture manufacturing renaissance. Having built a formidable portfolio of international designs, Modus went on to forge a reputation as one of the UK’s strongest sustainability voices. Recently certifying as a B Corporation, Modus will continue to operate as an independent company, retaining its own brand and servicing its dealer network while expanding its international reach.

“We are really excited about this new venture,” says Modus' MD, Jon Powell. “Our companies share an entrepreneurial spirit with a long history of working with some of the world’s leading designers. Design has always been central to our philosophy, and we are very happy to be partnering with a global manufacturer that understands the value of great design.

“Teknion has a significant global presence, and we expect to see the partnership drive strong growth for Modus. For Teknion, our portfolio meets the demand for a softer, more inclusive, and collaborative workplace.“

David Feldberg, president and CEO of Teknion, adds: “We are very selective in our strategic partnerships, and Modus shares our high standards for design, quality, craft, and sustainability. A passion for design connects Modus to Teknion and their focus on social and collaborative collections makes them a natural fit. It’s exciting to be welcoming Modus into the Teknion family.”
