RTA giant embraces innovative new assembly technology

Polish self-assembly furniture manufacturer Forte has partnered with Swedish components innovator Välinge, and been granted a licence to use its new Threespine ID click furniture technology. 

Forte's president Maria Florczuk says: “Forte's mission is to create a better home. That is why when I first saw Välinge's solution, it just clicked with me. It brings a new consumer experience during assembly, making it easier and more intuitive. At the same time, the possibility to conveniently dismantle the furniture extends its lifecycle and facilitates its recycling, which is another big step towards one of our most important goals for the upcoming years – sustainability. I am convinced that by joining forces with an innovation leader such as Välinge, together we can provide better solutions to both our customers and consumers." 

Threespine ID offers "a radically different way to assemble and disassemble furniture". 

“Of course, this integration required major investments and rescheduling," continues Maria, "but we are completely convinced! This new technology will be a game-changer for RTA furniture and the customer experience. Välinge has succeeded in creating an impressive innovation here and we are thrilled to be able to accompany and help shape this journey from the very beginning."  

Johan Hallin, senior key account manager, furniture at Välinge Innovation, adds: "We are very happy that Forte has decided to use our ground-breaking technology and to integrate it immediately into selected programmes. The discussions have been co-operative and goal-oriented right from the start, and we have been thinking directly in terms of concrete solutions and implementations. The partnership between Välinge and Forte fits perfectly - as it should be in furniture assembly."
