STORY OF SENKKI
Back in the day nearly every house in Jurva had a workshop that built furniture. When machinery wasn’t efficient enough, we built our own. By automating our production innovatively, we became more cost efficient and agile than others.
Although the number of furniture manufacturers in Jurva has gone down, our open-mindedness and ability to grow have carried us through the tough times.
Today, we’re a third-generation family business, manufacturing solid wood components and chairs to our clients with forty years of experience.
