Recently our President Jay took a trip to Nowy Targ, Poland to visit the factory that the Globo Hanging Chairs are built. Nowy Targ is a town in Southern Poland with a population of 34,000. In the past, Nowy Targ has been known for the manufacturing of shoes, but with the growth of the shoe industry in other parts of the world, the industry declined. The factory where the Globo’s are manufactured was previously a shoe factory and employs about 30 craftsman. These craftsman are responsible for manufacturing not only our Globo line of products but also our Olymp hammock stand and Atlas chair stand.
The factory in Newy Targ is also FSC Certified. FSC Certification means that all of the wood used on the products produced came from a well managed forest that provides environmental, social and economic benefits. These forest are managed responsibly with the environment in mind when it comes to harvesting.
The quality of the products coming from the craftsman in Poland has been flawless. The products are weather resistant, durable and beautiful. They are enthusiastic about working with us and we are looking forward to future development of new products.
