Quality since 1955, Wendelbo Interiors
Many things have changed since 1955 when the Wendelbo furniture business was founded in Aarhus, Denmark. Upholsterer and founder Tage Petersen had a goal of producing custom-made sofas using the old-fashioned styles of craftsmanship and incorporating values such as quality, precision and pride. These values instilled by the founder remain core to the business today.
Second generation takes over
Since 1989 the company has been run by second generation - Christina & Lars Wendelbo. Under their leadership, Wendelbo has become a well-known and preferable supplier of upholstered furniture to the Scandinavian market. The company is constantly innovative in terms of focus and design. The style has become more contemporary and the production has become more industrial - without forgetting the traditional values.
An international brand
In 2007 the company decided to move its production to Saigon, Vietnam. This move has proven to be a clever move and the beginning of a new era for the company. It has helped expand the company on an international level, with selected customers in more than 25 countries carrying the Wendelbo brand.
Christian Wendelbo - third generation, currently manages the Vietnam factory and its 375 plus highly skilled workers. Responsible working conditions are heavily weighted and there is a strong focus on CSR. Production runs smoothly and efficiently under his management and all tasks are carried out in Christian Wendelbo’s grandfather’s spirit: Craftsmanship and quality in every single detail. These values are as important in Vietnam today as they were in Aarhus in 1955.
