“Furniture Made in Germany“: ROLF BENZ is one of the first companies to be certified
01.08.2020 Nagold. An increasing number of people want to know the provenance of their furniture. On 1 August, the German furniture industry is going public with a label for “Furniture Made in Germany”. The upholstered furniture from the ROLF BENZ and freistil brands are among the first collections to be fully certified.
Since it was established in 1964, the ROLF BENZ company has been designing and producing innovative upholstered furniture in the Black Forest. This quality statement underscores the international design brand with a new certificate: “Furniture Made in Germany” is the first ever geographical label guaranteeing the provenance of furniture and consumer goods that is recognised by the RAL Institute for German Institute for Quality Assurance and Labelling.
“We are proud to be able to emphasise our commitment to Nagold with this label,” says Helge Gemsjäger, Technical Manager of ROLF BENZ. “‘Made in Germany’ means so much more than production. We train people, act as an incubator for technical innovations and are part of a sustainable network of family businesses. In this way, we create a high degree of individual diversity, constant top-class quality and long-term values. The new certificate enables us to promote and communicate all that much more precisely.”
ROLF BENZ passed the examination by the German Institute for Furniture Technology for the “Furniture Made in Germany” certification back in November 2019. Unlike most other manufacturers of upholstered furniture, ROLF BENZ has been consistently producing furniture on a fully integrated basis with its own upholstered frame factory in Nagold and the surrounding area – which is why the certificate has been awarded to its entire upholstered furniture collection.
ROLF BENZ is also certified with the RAL “Blue Angel” eco-label as well as the RAL “Golden M” quality label. The eponymous founding father of ROLF BENZ is one of the most committed forerunners of certified furniture quality in Germany. In this spirit, ROLF BENZ is both preserving traditions and setting trends at the same time.
