Kinnarps winner in nationwide municipal procurement

2014-08-26

Kinnarps will continue to supply furniture and interior fittings to Sweden’s municipalities, county councils and municipal companies. That has been clear since the conclusion of the procurements relating to furniture for public areas coordinated by SKL Kommentus.

Kinnarps has been accepted for all eight product sectors, but agreements have been signed in a subsequent phase in the sectors of furniture for offices, pre-schools and schools. These agreements, which run for two years with an extension option for another two years, are estimated to be worth a total of about SEK 380 million annually.

“SKL Kommentus made high demands on the products in the procurement procedure as regards both sustainability and quality,” says Per Lehmann, Head of Kinnarps Interior Sweden. We see the fact that Kinnarps has been selected as a supplier for these product sectors as confirmation that our product offer is attractive and our nationwide network of dealers is fully fit for purpose.

Kinnarps has extensive experience in supplying public authorities, and has over the years fitted out everything from pre-schools, schools, hospitals and care units to small and large office workplaces. The Kinnarps sales organisation is also completely familiar with the needs of municipalities, municipal companies and county councils.

“We happen to operate in a market where ways of working are evolving quickly, and we must be agile and responsive in order to follow the changing needs of individual users. Kinnarps has at all times placed great store on creating an optimal work environment with effective ergonomics, while at the same time never compromising on style and design. In their agreements with Kinnarps, the municipalities and county councils get a really extensive product offer with optimal function, design and quality. Our first-class logistics can also assure deliveries from north to south in our long-drawn out country,” says Per Lehmann.
