Wielkopolska FURNITURE DESIGN Cluster
The primary goal of the Cluster is to promote the production of furniture through the use of eco‑friendly lightweight boards. A supporting instrument is the development of modern furniture design that follows current trends, is characterized by top quality and originality, as well as corresponding to regional cultural and scientific values.
The indirect goal of the Initiative is to reinforce SMEs in the Wielkopolska furniture sector and to nurture entrepreneurs’ interest in network cooperation. The cluster also strives to promote an innovative and competitive product, to expand market share, and to increase the competitive advantage of its members.
The initiator of the activities undertaken, aimed at intensifying cooperation between furniture industry enterprises, was the Wysogotowo-based company METALMEX Sp. J. The experience gained during meetings held by the Wielkopolska Furniture Cluster and the continuous search for innovative solutions to increase the competitive advantage of the company spurred METALMEX to establish cooperation with the Wielkopolska Chamber of Commerce in Poznań (orig. name: Wielkopolska Izba Przemysłowo-Handlowa w Poznaniu).
