Construction of the world’s most environmentally friendly furniture factory has started
On Friday, 25 September, we started building the world’s most environmentally friendly furniture factory. Named The Plus, the factory is located in the town Magnor, in eastern Norway, and will be the largest single investment in the Norwegian furniture industry for decades. The Plus has been designed by the world-famous firm of architects BIG Bjarke Ingels Group, and will serve as a global showcase for outstanding architecture and high-efficiency industrial production.
The factory aiming to set a new global standard
We have no doubt said it many times before, but when Vestre was established in a German barracks in Haugesund back in 1947, our motto Everything is possible for Our Lord and a mechanic lay behind it all.
How do you build the world’s most environmentally friendly furniture factory?
In June we launched our plans for building the hypermodern factory; The Plus. But The Plus is so much more than that. We actually have five goals for the project, you might call it our manifesto: The first goal being that we will build the most environmentally furniture factory in the world.
