A while back I had a chance to talk with the nice people of Familon Oy about their recent changes in the organization and why their products are so highly praised among cruise ship passengers and hotel guests. Learn, what they had to say about the reasons for their success.
What are the latest news in Familon?
In 2014 there were a lot of changes in Familon. In July 2014 Trading House Scandinavia AB, one of the largest European bedding manufacturers, bought Familon including project sales unit. Familon Oy is now a subsidiary to Trading House Scandinavia. The brand name of project sales, changed from Finlayson Pro to Familon Pro. Familon is a very well-known brand in home textiles; pillows, duvets, mattresses and beds since 1966. Familon is a trusted company with certification for quality, environmental management, occupational health, and safety at work.
For those who are not specialists, why Familon’s products are the best in the industry?
Since 1996, Familon’s pillows and duvets have been developed together with the Finnish Allergy and Asthma Federation and carry the Finnish Allergy Label. This label is awarded only to products that are safe for even the most sensitive of users. The Key Flag Symbol signifies that our products are made in Finland. The Oeko-Tex Standard 100 mark is testament to the safety of our textiles. Familon beds have also been awarded the Swan label, which is the official ecolabel for the Nordic countries. We’ve taken care of every detail to make drifting off to sleep a pure pleasure.
All Familon beds are made at our own factory in Heinola, Finland, using advanced technology and over 30 years of experience. The manufacturing process includes several stages that require skill and precision. The beds are upholstered and the covers are carefully hand sewn. Each spring is made from specialized carbon steel, which is thermally tempered during production for maximum durability. Familon mattresses and top mattresses are also manufactured and tested in Finland, from where we ship around 150,000 products to destinations around the world every year. The high-quality Familon Pro products are suitable for a range of settings from cruise ships, hotels, hospitals etc. Familon Pro products belonging to ignitability class SL 1 and bearing the wheel mark have received MED certification.
