The new international Hjort Knudsen takes shape
Since 1997 Ina and Arne’s son, Klaus Hjort Knudsen has managed the business, together with his wife Ellen Mønsted, after a successful generation shift that created ‘Hjort Knudsen A/S’.
In a globalised world and with competitiveness coming to a head, the company decided to purchase its first manufacturing space in Poland in 2000. Ten years later, production was expanded to Ukraine and later also to the UK.
In 2018 the company expanded its product range to start producing beds. Here too, the focus is on the many options for customising the bed: from measurements, construction and choice of headboard to firmness, surface coating, legs, etc.
The strategy involves achieving growth with new and attractive furniture designs that also give the customer ample opportunity to put together their very own piece of furniture.
