Sanamöbel: The Company
Sanamöbel is a modern and versatile metal processing company specialized in producing high quality products like design furniture (tables and upholstered chairs), hospital beds, outdoor furniture, high / low and comfort beds, contract furniture, furniture components, custom-made ceiling systems and small metal constructions. Many years of experience in product development (often in collaboration with renowned designers) allows us to cooperate proactively as a partner from development till finished product with the continuous support of our engineering department.
Sanamöbel has 30 years of experience and is supported by a reliable network of specialized suppliers. This enables us to guarantee our customers short delivery times and JIT–supply. Among our customers there are manufacturers, wholesale distributors, hospitals and contract businesses to whom we supply custom-made work.
Wanting to give your collection a contemporary feel, we work together with highly respected design professionals such as Axel Enthoven, Hans Daalder, Mathias De Ferm, Nathalie Buijs and Miete Vandendriessche who share Sanamöbel’s values and philosophy.
In order to produce the above mentioned high quality products, Sanamöbel relies on some 120 skilled employees, the latest technologies and up-to-date equipment:
ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION & SUSTAINABILITY
When developing and manufacturing our products, we rely on:
- efficient processes
- minimal energy consumption
- reuse of our packaging materials / efficient packaging methods
This pays off for the company and the environment. We use fewer resources and reduce both emissions and waste.
Also in terms of environmental protection, there is a leading role for Sanamöbel:
- We selectively recover almost all raw material surpluses. If no recovery options are available, we dispose of waste in a correct and environmentally responsible manner.
- We installed a water treatment unit to clean the water coming from our phosphate process during powder coating.
Sanamöbel was founded in 1962 -if you may say so- in the heyday of the communist era in Central Eastern Europe, with the task of producing hospital beds and related items. During that period, around 50 enthusiastic employees produced the hospital beds under the supervision of Mr Mohacsi Lajos. Mr Mohacsi, with some 40 years’experience, has been responsible for sales to the healthcare sector. At present, you can hardly find a hospital in Hungary without a Sanamöbel bed.
Since 2009, the current owner, Joost Vandendriessche has started an impressive investment program of around 6 million €. It all started with the restructuring of the existing buildings. Two years later, a new building of 2000 m² rose and is being used as a raw materials warehouse and as a place for existing and new machines. At the end of 2013 another 2500 m² of buildings rose for accommodating a powder coating equipment, an assembly hall and the expedition hall with loading docks. Finally, in 2014, almost all machinery has been refreshed and top of the bill, is the brand new processing center for pipes and open and closed profiles. This machine is a “bevel cut” laser cutting machine (with angled cut) and offers unprecedented possibilities for the design and realization of furniture components. Beside this, the company is also renowned in surface treatment and powder coating.
The human capital is of course a very important factor in our company. About 120 employees take care of realizing the company philosophy every day. The main department involved in transforming the philosophy into products is our engineering department. Our modern hardware and up-to-date software enable our engineers to cooperate with the designers of our customers and to make the right material choices, to bring shape and functionality into harmony, to consider the production procedures and to calculate prices.
