The Danish company “Hjort Knudsen A/S” which designs, manufactures and sells comfortable chairs, sofas and beds, plans to expand its operations in Ukraine.
In Ukraine, the company is represented by the “United Fashion of Ukraine Ltd.” which acquired its first production in 2010. Currently, the company’s production facilities in Lviv, Brody, Velyki Mosty (Lviv region) and Pochaiv (Ternopil region) employ 1,200 employees.
In the Rivne region, the Danish company has decided to invest 11 million euros in the construction of a large environmentally friendly woodworking plant for a total area of 40,000 square meters. In addition, a sewing workshop will open here which will manufacture covers for upholstered furniture.
According to the Rivne Regional State Administration, such an enterprise will positively affect the furniture cluster, as it stimulates the development of related industries.
Also, the company plans to expand its production in Brody, where new construction of warehouses has begun to strengthen existing capacities.
