It is of great importance that the things we purchase and live with, do not need to be changed but instead grow old with dignity and charm.

Andreas Graversen, CEO for Fredericia, 1955-1995.

Our mission

Encouraging customers to conscious consumption has been at the core of Fredericia’s company ethics ever since we began in 1911.

Our pioneering work with Børge Mogensen is based on combining a timeless, modern aesthetic with durable construction and suitable materials. The goal is to create furniture that becomes more beautiful with age and is intended to be passed on from generation to generation. These core values are rooted in our sense of responsibility and our use of natural materials, our ethical methods of production and our respect for the people using our furniture every day.

Production

Our local production facilities are important to us, and we are proud to honour our history of local expertise and unchanging quality. Our name Fredericia comes from the fact that the company was founded in the city of Fredericia in 1911. To this day, we still have local production facilities for selected designs both in Fredericia and Svendborg. We handpick our suppliers and mainly purchase raw materials and semi-finished and finished products from European suppliers. We have opted out of overseas transport and subcontractors to improve the product life cycle.

Waste reduction

We work systematically to ensure waste reduction. For instance, we collect and sort textile and leather waste material separately, ensuring that the waste material can be donated, used for smaller products, or sold to other companies who can use it in their operations, prolonging the life of the materials.

Traceability

SPOOR is a collection of leather with 100% documented traceability, meaning you can follow the leather all the way from the farm to the finished piece of furniture. The sourcing of rawhides used to produce leather and the ability to identify the animal’s origin can be challenging. However, SPOOR ensures complete transparency by sourcing rawhides directly from the abattoirs.

SPOOR also provides a guarantee that the leather comes from Northern European rawhides. The Nordic origin means that the cattle have enjoyed some of the highest animal welfare standards in the world.
