Ekornes Customer story



Ekornes ASA is the largest furniture manufacturer in the Nordic region and owns such brand names as Ekornes®, Stressless® and Svane®. Stressless® is one of the world’s most famous furniture brands, while Ekornes® and Svane® are the best known brands in the Norwegian furniture market.

Although the company has been in existence since 1934, the arrival of the oil industry in Norway changed everything. Wages are now so high that other industries face a penury of skilled labor. This has pushed Ekornes to find radical new ways to increase productivity without increasing resources.


Lectra has already worked with the leading furniture companies in Europe, the US and China to help them manage changes to their business model and processes. Lectra is able to provide Ekornes with the same expertise, using a customized approach delivered by a team of experienced consultants, trainers and technical experts.
