  • Karel Mintjens (manufacturer of oak furniture)
  • Gaston Bauwens
  • Van Pelt
  • Rom

The major players in the Belgium furniture manufacturing industry base their strategy on “qualitative competition”. Hence, they don’t compete on price with low cost manufacturers in other parts of the world, but focus on quality instead. Co-operation, innovation and developing new talent is crucial for the Belgium furniture companies to flourish. This helps to position these furniture companies well when the owners want to sell their company in the future. Belgian consumers are loyal to their own products.
