Poliform adopts a clean and minimalistic style, without non-essential details, to develop products that will last in time. The following tables show the procurement of raw materials, according to the different units of measure described.
The supply chain is a fundamental part of Poliform’s value, which is why the company has chosen to work with a network of mainly local suppliers (artisans and others), who offer a priceless combination of creativity and experience.
Thanks to its procurement policy and the compliance with official certification programs, Poliform guarantees that purchased materials meet the conditions that the company has committed to comply with, in terms of human rights and environmental standards. 97% of Poliform’s suppliers come from Italy and 88% of them from the region where the company’s facilities are located.
The FSC Custody Chain certification guarantees the traceability of materials ensuring they are sourced from FSC certified forests, and it is indispensable to affix FSC labels on the products. This certification, one of the better known and most recognized in the world, guarantees that the raw material used for the production of furnishing consists of material sourced from responsibly managed forests or from recycled material. The company has been complying with these requirements since 2013.
The TSCA Title VI certification aims at reducing and controlling formaldehyde emissions from wood-based materials used in the United States of America. The TSCA Title VI certification, a natural extension of the Californian CARB certification, was also taken as a reference standard by important multinational corporations in the wood-furnishing sector, thus influencing many European manufacturers of semi-finished or finished products.
Over the last few years, Poliform has been at the center of a major organizational change, aimed at achieving increased efficiency and sustainability at a logistics level. The company went from a “Make to Stock” to a “Make to Order” system, that is, a system in which products are made only when they have already been sold, thus avoiding waste due to over-production, and making warehouse management more efficient.
