JOY BROUGHT INTO SHAPE

«We have joy in artisanry, precious materials, form and function. You can see that in our furniture» Patrick Brunner, CEO is convinced. He and his team are passionately committed to their furniture manufacture full of tradition, which has been writing history since 1923. The first chapter was written by 15 employees, who produced household items and kitchen furniture. The second chapter followed soon: In 1928, Volksbank Willisau and furniture factory Nyffeler and Jordi based in Strengelbach founded the public limited company «Holzwaren- und Möbelfabrik AG in Willisau-Stadt». Nowadays, more than 50 employees work on many more chapters of this great design history made in Switzerland.
