European Furniture Producers- Part 2, Company Details and Financials
The requested information for the furniture manufacturers included in the spreadsheet that was created during the first part of this request has been compiled. As all the companies are privately owned, there was not a lot of financial information publicly available. Some companies had estimated revenues on sites such as Hoovers. I entered those amounts, along with the rest of the requested information, into the attached spreadsheet.
WHOLESALE AND DISTRIBUTION CHANNELS
The companies included in the spreadsheet use different distribution channels. Some are only customer direct while others are only retail. Still, others do both. The companies that use solely customer direct distribution are Dreipunkt International, E15, and Gerbor Holding. Furniture manufacturers who use retail as their means of distribution are Abauj, Alprom, Alson, and D-tec. Finally, furniture manufacturers who use both retail and customer direct distribution channels are Walter Knoll, Atelier fuer Holzbau, Behr International, Bruhl, Draenert Studio, Erpo, Vizatel, Rexwood, Merx, and Eastern Colonial.
COMPANY SIZE — REVENUES AND/OR # OF EMPLOYEES
All the companies included in the spreadsheet are privately owned and none of them make their annual reports or financial statements publicly available. Estimated revenue was available through Hoovers for some companies. A few companies provided the number of employees they currently have. Unfortunately, there are some companies for which none of this information is publicly available. The companies for whom estimated revenue could be located are E15, Walter Knoll, Behr International, Draenert Studio, and Gerbor Holding. The companies who provided their number of employees are D-tec, Merx, and Abauj. Finally, the companies for which none of the requested information was publicly available are Bruhl, Alprom, East Colonial, Alson, Rexwood, Vizatel, Atelier fuer Holzbau, and Erpo,
MANUFACTURE PRINCIPLES OR FACILITY INFORMATION
The information available for the included companies varied widely. Some companies gave detailed information about their views toward sustainability and social responsibilities while others made no mention of either. Some companies gave fairly detailed facility information while others gave nothing. The information that was provided was compiled and entered into the attached spreadsheet.
FURTHER FINANCIAL INFORMATION
The privately owned companies listed in the spreadsheet did not share any basic or further financial information.
The companies all had sales channels that were either online sales, customer order sales, or regular retail sales in stores or through dealers. E15, Walter Knoll, Bruhl, Daernert Studio, Erpo, Abauj, Alprom, Merx, and D-tec all sell their products internationally. The remaining furniture manufacturers sell their products only in their country, region, or locality.
Since all the companies are privately owned, no company-provided financial information was publicly available but estimated revenue was used when available. The information available for each company varied in detail but all publicly available information has been compiled and entered into the attached spreadsheet.
