Teknos systems have been the long-standing choice of Sverix

“We offer our customers good quality at a competitive price”, says Magnus Gunnarsson, owner and Sales Director of AS Sverix. The company is the biggest Baltic manufacturer of pine garden furniture and also produces wood windows, external doors and fence elements. The production plant in Polva in the southeast of Estonia employs around 70 people. The 7,000 m2 site is equipped with the latest production systems and incorporates a logistics centre, from which Sverix supplies customers throughout Europe. “Our garden furniture is sold in most European countries. Our market for wood windows and doors is Scandinavia,” explains Magnus Gunnarsson, who is a Swedish national.

Baltic cooperation

Sverix markets its garden furniture range, which accounts for around 60% of turnover, through Baltic Garden Group. The Group comprises several garden furniture makers in the Baltic states with a combined total of more than 30,000 m2 production facilities. The Baltic Garden Group distributes garden furniture made of wood with FSC and other certifications for the European market. Customers are mainly DIY and garden centres, major retail chains and wholesalers in various European countries. The Baltic Garden Group’s extensive range of products includes sofas, chairs, tables, deckchairs, garden swing sofas and cushions.

Sverix processes around 500 m3 timber monthly at its excellently equipped production facility in Polva. There are four flowcoating tunnels, an automatic spraying unit and several airmix spray systems. For all garden furniture, windows or doors, the company relies on Teknos coating solutions. “We have been cooperating with Teknos since 1992, when we switched to 100% waterborne coatings and found the right partner in Teknos”, explains Magnus Gunnarsson. “We are very happy with the cooperation. Teknos has a wide range of efficient products and offers us competent technical support.”

For its solid pine garden furniture, windows and fence elements, Sverix uses TEKNOL AQUA 1410, ANTISTAIN AQUA and GORI 661. HDF doors are coated with GORI 615, TEKNOSEAL 4002 and AQUATOP 2600.
