Taiga Concept Oy
starts exclusive cooperation
with Steelcase Inc In APAC.

Finnish-based Manufacturer Taiga Concept Ltd. Signs an exclusive Partnership with Steelcase Inc in Asia Pacific.

As of June 1, 2019, a Finnish company Taiga Concept Ltd. has agreed on an exclusive distribution cooperation with U.S.-owned Steelcase Inc., which manufactures office furniture solutions.

Through distribution contract with Taiga Concept, Steelcase expands its range of products to scalable office modules. For Taiga Concept the contract means making an entry on international market.

There is a demand for scalable office modules in the Asian market, where the ongoing transformation of office culture has led companies to seek new types of space solutions to increase privacy in open offices.

Since 2015, Taiga Concept has developed its mobile and soundproof modules in Finland. Modules are designed to be used in offices and public spaces. The core of product development is to increase well-being for people working in open offices and public spaces.

After a financing round in the mid-2018, the Kuopio-based company was able to expand to international markets and it invested in Asia. Taiga Concept Ltd. raised 588 000 EUR with the financing round, and the round was fully subscribed within an hour and a half. With the money raised, Taiga Concept expanded its production to Shanghai, China and Vietnam.

– Asian markets are fast-paced, and our competitive advantage is that we can produce close to our customers. This accelerates the process and is also better from the environmental point of view, says Maarit Sinikangas, CEO of Taiga Concept.

Sinikangas adds that in the international market, it is important that the products are easy to use, sustainable, certified, and the parts are recyclable.
