At Spaljisten quality is a top priority
High production pace demands multiple quality inspections throughout the manufacturing process. All steps are important for a perfect result. Every day, five to six trucks with chipboard are delivered to us at Spaljisten and from these we saw out 1500 fronts in different formats - every hour. We produce fronts in a variety of sizes and colours for kitchens, closets and bathrooms. This means that our production must be incredibly flexible in order to be able to deliver quality in a cost-effective way on a number of variants of fronts. A challenge that we take very seriously.
Clean production environment
Accuracy and cleanliness in the production environment are important factors in the success of maintaining a high standard of our products. Since we work with wood materials, the humidity at our production site plays a key role. Perfect conditions are required for both the chipboards and the glue we use in the process. Sawing wood results in shavings and dust. When we glue and apply the foil on the chipboard we need to make sure that the surface is completely smooth and clean, the smallest particle on the board will be visible through the foil. An anti-static vacuum cleaner ensures that all boards are completely dust-free before further process.
In the next step of the manufacturing process, an edge band is applied around the entire edge of the front and with our automated edge banding inspection, we can guarantee that it always sits where it supposed to. If the edge band is missing or is offset, the machine alarms. The drilling inspection works in much the same way, a camera makes sure that all holes are drilled where they should. This guarantee that there will not be any surprises when the end customer later assembles their furniture. With these quality inspections, we can guarantee that all steps always are 100% correctly performed.
Every day we challenge ourselves to get better and do better, it is a natural part of our everyday life. With innovative solutions from employees and working groups, we continue to develop our quality assurance.
Thinner, Lighter & Recycled - Sustainability the new normal

Made in Sweden from more sustainable sources
Climate-smart materials such as wood and recycled plastic creates a positive ripple effect for our environment. Our vision to “manufacture fronts of the highest quality and with the next generation in mind” pushes us to produce more sustainable fronts. PET-bottle and plastic recycling also give us the opportunity to use plastic with a reduced energy consumption.
