Manufacture of wooden chairsBack to all brands
Wenden specialises in making chairs from birch and oak wood, which grows locally in Latvia and are very popular materials in Scandinavia. 60-70% of the birch chairs available in stores there are made by Wenden. A good chair is one that one does not feel when sitting in it. The main thing is that the chair be comfortable and ergonomic. From the manufacturing point of view, a chair is the most complicated piece of furniture to make – it consists of 15 to 20 different pieces, and it takes quite an amount of skill to put those pieces together correctly and precisely. A good chair can last 30 to 50 years. Wenden’s principles for successful manufacturing and marketing are simple: produce quality, produce it on time, keep in mind the numbers, and make a profit. Those principles are set in stone – because no one needs a low-quality product, and no one needs a product that cannot be delivered on time. When manufacturing chairs, numbers don’t mean only the number of chairs produced. They also mean a watchmaker’s precision in regard to measurements, angles, degrees and even seconds. But the team of employees that has grown together with the company is just as important a factor in Wenden’s success. When the company began, most of them were young men in their very early 20s. “My team is my greatest pride,” says Brēmers.
