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.
Innovative solutions and some aces up the sleeve
We find solutions that combine the customer's interest and needs with the conditions that exist in the production and in the materials we use.
Handleless furniture fronts
We will continue to develop Spaljisten and launch our ambitious plans for 2022-2026. This involves the expansion of our factory areas in Åseda, new lines for foiling with J-profiling, edge processing, internal logistics and packaging, innovations, sustainable materials and of course – further product development.

He speaks the customer voice
This past year has really tried us. The world changed rapidly over night, and much will forever be transformed. We do all need to cross through outer circumstances at regular basis and this is exactly what belongs to Ulf's everyday work. With an agile mindset he set new targets and goals.
Thinner, Lighter & Recycled - Sustainability the new normal
The starting point for the project was in 2019, Spaljistens global leading furniture customer were asking for a new “green” kitchen front and where all materials should have a share of minimum 50% recycled content.
These fingers feels the quality
This year he has worked at Spaljisten for a full 35 years. A lot has changed since then but some things have remained the same, we still produce fronts for kitchens.

Think big but act small
As the future changes it is necessary for us to understand how it also affect our customers’ expectations.
The road towards a more sustainable kitchen front
Talking about sustainability is in many ways complicated but at the same time very simple. We always work with the next generation in mind and this leads us in our choices towards a more sustainable production and end product. This is how we manufactured our most sustainable kitchen front so far.
