Innovation, quality and the ability to adapt have been the characteristics on which Ekornes has built its business since it was founded in 1934.

Today, the company produces more than 1,300 seat units a day at its Sykkylven factory alone. In 2022, Ekornes QM Holding AS (Group) reported gross operating revenues of NOK 4,928 million.
