From Sandnes to Tampa in the USA!

This fall, outdoor furniture with a sales value of over 1 million Norwegian kroner is being shipped from NOT in Sandnes to Tampa in the USA. The furniture has been surface treated by NOT on behalf of Vestre, Norway’s leading manufacturer of unique furniture with Scandinavian design for cities, parks, and public outdoor spaces.

Furniture with Long Lifespan
The furniture from Vestre has received numerous design awards and creates meeting places for millions of people around the world. Vestre is committed to producing furniture sustainably and ensuring quality. As a result, the furniture is treated with a NOT surface treatment that equips them to withstand the elements. With consistent quality and surface treatment from NOT, everything is set for worry-free use for many years to come.

30 Years of Collaboration
Ivar Salte, the Managing Director of NOT Pulverlakk, explains that Vestre, with its ever-changing models and challenges, has been an exciting customer for 30 years. The furniture now being shipped from Sandnes to the USA represents the largest single order NOT has delivered on behalf of Vestre.

– We have a dedicated assembly department where we work on assembling Vestre’s furniture after finishing the surface treatment. Once the furniture is ready, we send the finished result directly out into the world. The fact that Vestre doesn’t feel the need to inspect the work we’ve done before forwarding the furniture is something we consider a huge vote of confidence, says a proud Salte.

NOT Surface Treatment Worldwide
Vestre’s outdoor furniture is exported to more than ten countries, primarily in Europe, but also to the American market. For NOT, it’s a source of pride to know that the chairs and tables destined for placement in Florida are powder-coated by NOT in Kvål, Sandnes, just as the furniture on Times Square in New York is. Back at home, the vibrant orange furniture at Aker Brygge in Oslo, for example, is the result of collaboration between NOT and Vestre.
