ON THE FACTORY FLOOR
Meet our suppliers
At IKEA, we know a lot about furniture. But no one knows more about it than the people who build it. That’s why we work in close-knit teams with our suppliers, together on the factory floor. We believe that good ideas can come from anywhere and together with our suppliers, we always look for new and smarter ways of doing things. Meet some of the people that make IKEA possible, every day.
Gyllensvaans was one of our first ever suppliers. This Swedish, family owned company delivered their first pieces of furniture to IKEA in 1952. Gyllensvaans started the production of the famous BILLY bookcases in 1978. They are now our largest supplier of BILLY.
