Products developed and manufactured in Germany
The steel that arrives at Sedus is stored in the raw material tower and processed into blanks. Various presses, turning, grinding and bending machines, a tube laser and welding robots are available for this purpose.
The surface treatment is used for corrosion protection and also for visual appearance. The corresponding parts are either galvanised or powder-coated. Powder coating is an environmentally friendly process because it is solvent-free and produces little waste. It was possible to convert to chromium 3 due to the new, modern electroplating plant.
Foam, textile and leather are cut to size, upholstery foam is attached to seat plates and backrests, and the upholstery is then fitted. Due to the CNC-controlled textile cutting and the efficient manual cutting of leather, the offcuts are kept low, thus reducing waste.
Wooden parts, such as armrests and backrests, seat shells or desktops are made from raw material and, depending on their use, are veneered, layer-glued, sawn and milled. All visible parts are varnished before assembly and stained beforehand, if necessary.
The parts manufacturing department produces almost all wooden components for office desks and cabinets. Furthermore, all drilling, milling and fitting work is carried out on the drilling line and the wooden dowels are automatically placed.
In this final stage of manufacturing, the components from metal and wood production as well as upholstery and sewing are assembled to finished products (office swivel chairs, partner chairs, sofas, free-standing screens, desks, cupboards). The products are then ready to be shipped.
Sedus Stoll AG is an unlisted public limited company which operates as an office furniture manufacturer under the Sedus brand. The company is majority-owned by the Stoll VITA Foundation in Waldshut and the Karl Bröcker Foundation in Lippstadt. The two foundations, which are intended to uphold the entrepreneurial independence of Sedus Stoll AG, pursue charitable aims.
