Stressless chairs and sofas
J.E. Ekornes AS in Sykkylven is one of the production companies within the Ekornes Group. The company consists of the main plant at Ikornnes together with the former Vestlandske Møbler AS factory, which was taken over by J.E. Ekornes AS in January 1997, and former Johan P. Tynes AS (taken over by J. E. Ekornes in october 2002).
J.E.Ekornes AS manufactures Stressless chairs and Stressless sofas.
One of the distinguishing features of the factory is the large number of components manufactured on the premises. Production includes the sewing department, upholstery/assembly, joinery/varnishing, manufacture and surface treatment of steel components, as well as production and formcasting of foamed plastic. The Vestlandske department manufactures the laminate for Stressless and other furniture products. These are cutting edge skills built on many years' experience.
Production of foamed plastic is sufficient for all Ekornes's own requirements, and in addition to this, a considerable volume is sold to other furniture manufacturers.
