"Sedus is committed to making all office work a profitable experience at all times. For the good of the business and the employees."
The original Stoll family business was established in 1871, and the company known as Christof Stoll GmbH & Co. KG made the change to become Sedus Stoll AG in 1995. Some of its European subsidiaries in UK, Belgium, France, Spain, Italy, Austria, the Netherlands and Switzerland were founded over forty years ago and operate independently in their home markets.
Sedus furniture is among the leading European manufacturers in the office furniture sector. With 37 % of its products manufactured for export, the Sedus brand has established a presence through eight subsidiaries in Europe and outlets in over forty countries around the world. The company employs over 880 people and generated sales of EUR 160 million in 2007.
Sedus office furniture offers solutions for every business department be it the reception area to individual cellular office, combi, open-plan and directors’ offices. Guided by the rules of modern workstation design and tailored to meet the customer’s needs.
Countercyclical investments, consistent expansion of their product portfolio and sales expertise are the strategic building blocks that successfully differentiate them from their competitors and give Sedus a strong brand positioning.
For a long time now, Sedus has been committed to treating the environment with due care, a concern that was initiated by company owners Christof and Emma Stoll over 50 years ago. In 1995, Sedus was the first furniture manufacturer in Germany to subject its longstanding environment management system to review and audit.
Protecting water, avoiding emissions and noise, reducing waste and transport packaging, saving energy, protecting natural resources and using ecologically compatible materials and technologies – these are the principles on which they base their product development and all their work processes.
Their resources and energy efficiency are subject to ongoing optimisation. In the year 2011 alone Sedus was able to reduce consumption by 1.6 million kilowatt hours, despite an increase in production output – a figure that represents the annual consumption of 450 households. This is partly accounted for by their cogeneration plant, which went into service in 2010. Sedus changed over completely to green electricity on 1 January 2012, thereby improving their CO² balance. Another new aspect is the energy management system at their Dogern site, which has been audited in compliance with DIN ISO 50 001.Nomination for the Baden-Württemberg Environmental Prize 2012 confirms this commitment. And Sedus will not be resting on these laurels.
