Sweden's Head of State, King Carl XVI Gustaf, celebrates 40 years on the throne this year. To mark the anniversary, the King is visiting all the counties of Sweden. It is Västra Götaland's turn on 21 August, and it is with great pleasure that we can announce that Kinnarps will also be graced by a visit from King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia on that day.

"We are extremely proud and pleased that Kinnarps has been proposed as a point of call for Sweden's Head of State. It shows that Kinnarps is a significant player in the local area and a company that the County Council is proud to put forward. This is the first ever Royal visit to Kinnarps. It's great that we'll have the opportunity to show them around Kinnarps, our wonderful production facilities and our interior design solutions in the Next Office – ABW exhibition where our concept for activity based working environments is on display," says CEO Per-Arne Andersson.
