Today, Swiss Krono Group is one of the world's leading manufacturers in wood floors, but it hasn't always been that way. In fact, the company had humble beginnings in the small province of Menznau halfway across the world in Switzerland way back in 1966. Its founder, Ernst Kaindl, was a hopeful and determined entrepreneur who worked tirelessly to get his company off the ground.
Thanks to Ernst's grit, determination and perseverance, that mission became a reality within just a few short years. The company expanded considerably, extending its portfolio and reputation across the world to other major countries such as France, Germany, Russia, Poland and the United States to the international success it is today, where its many manufacturing plants produce and deliver to customers the vision that Ernst believed in all those years ago: the highest-quality wood products that money can buy.
In stark contrast to the single plant in Ukraine that was solely responsible for manufacturing Swiss Kronos' goods all those years ago, over 121 countries worldwide benefit from the Group's presence in their borders today as their plants produce, churn out, and hand down to customers these beautiful products.
Having its roots as a family-oriented business, Swiss Krono Group now employs around 5,100 employees across the globe. Every single one of these employees is a committed and hardworking member of a global team, working across all levels of the business to provide to their local customers the best service and wood products available in today's market. It is primarily for this reason that the Swiss Krono Group has managed to achieve its status as one of the longest-serving and most renowned wood manufacturers in the world.
But this isn't the only benefit that arises from having such an established company in the woodworking industry. Swiss Krono Group's wherewithal and longevity in the market means that it has been able to contemporize and adapt to new trends. In other words, the company's products have never become outdated or a thing of the past. On the contrary, they have evolved with the times. The company's Swiss Krono Floor, for example, is a highly popular, sleek flooring product designed specifically to suit modern households across the globe. Keeping in touch with the tastes of today's consumers, Swiss Krono features in its catalogues only the most up-to-date and fashionable floors to grace the modern market.
Yet it is not only the company's products that have evolved with the times; the company's ethos has also changed and, with that, the criteria by which they judge and select appropriate ecologically sustainable materials from which they harvest and produce their products. This process begins with the harvesting of suitable woods from sustainable forests, to preparing the wood, to its industrial production in one of the company's many plants across the globe. You can rest assured that only the best products have ended up on the shelf of your local hardware stores and furniture outlets, having been subjected to a rigorous process of inspection and qualification to pass the company's impeccable standards of ecological and technical production.
Looking back on its modest origins in Switzerland, it is hard to believe the Swiss Krono Group has taken such a stronghold across the globe, and yet they continue to be a competitive powerhouse in the market, passing down to their customers the very best products at the most affordable rates.
Swiss Krono Group's products may have changed over time to suit the needs of their customers, yet the mission with which Ernst Kaindl launched the company all those years ago has always remained the same: they will always strive to meet or surpass their customers' expectations in the areas of craftsmanship, usability, ecological standards or performance in whatever environment in which they're installed or used.
Even as it continues to grow and expand, the Group will always endeavour to maintain the integrity and vision with which the enterprise started. It is so dedicated to this end that it now employs independent institutes to carry out inspections on its products so the customer will always end up with the most supreme products out there. Moreover, it will continue to maintain its family-oriented values and approach to the workforce, and produce only the most stylistically up-to-date catalogues and ranges available.
