Although we only produce in series, our customers have a wide range of materials and colors to choose from. All
the furniture patterns that we produce are our own personal design, an example of which being that in 2018 we registered and obtained the OSIM certification for the first extension system we devised.

Amongst our latest investments in the furniture production are a comprehensive range of hi-tech woodworking machines and advanced materials CNC machinery, purchased in 2019. These high-productivity automatic production systems ensure constant performance quality and offer levels of machinability, precision and quality never before obtained with the technology of this sector.

MOBILA SA has established excellent trustworthy and stable contractual relationships with a diverse customer base, which includes not only Romania’s largest hypermarket chains (i.e., DEDEMAN, EMAG, METRO, ELVILA), but also small and medium sized companies. Our company is also present in the online environment through its own online retail store and also through other clients, being thus able to ensure that our products are delivered in Romania, Poland, Hungary and Bulgaria. Within Romania, MOBILA SA’s products are safely transported with our own trucks but also with contracted cargo trucks for the palletized goods. Our car fleet includes four 3,5t vans and ten trucks, four of which are also equipped with trailers.
MOBILA SA has a prime responsibility towards the environment, thus being actively involved in selective waste disposal and the periodic reporting of the selective disposal of packaging waste. We are currently working on reducing the consumption of thinner and changing the current upholstery adhesive with a water-based one, in order to reduce the former’s negative environmental impact. Because of its toxicity, the nitro varnish has already been withdrawn from our manufacturing stream and has been replaced by a water-based environmentally friendly varnish. Other measures that we take in order to make our company as environmentally friendly as possible, include: disposal of hazardous waste packaging to specialized companies for controlled disposal; paper, cardboard and PVC foil are handed over to a recycling company; wood waste is reused either within our own dryer or for the heating of our production halls; periodic analysis of the wastewater and dryer emissions; selective storage of waste in airtight bins.
Our goal is to satisfy all customer requirements by offering furniture products at a good quality-price ratio which is under continuous improvement. We believe that furniture is as much function as style and so we aim for constant development in our factory and products, both conceptually and aesthetically, in order to maintain our customers’ expectations and a standard of high-quality furniture.
MOBILA SA is looking forward to new partnerships and entering into new contractual relationships regarding furniture trade, since building and maintaining mutually beneficial business relationships is the key to success.
