A brilliant idea, entrepreneurial vision and a firm grounding in reality – this is the basis for POLIPOL’s success story. Not just doing it differently to everyone else, but doing it better. Continuous growth, but with a sense of proportion. And setting trends that will endure – the concept on which Gerd J. Hemmerling founded POLIPOL in 1990 still works today.
In the early years, Rahden in Eastern Westphalia and Zehdenick near Berlin were the linchpins of the company. Operating with seven employees, POLIPOL launched its first upholstered furniture series onto the market. Today, POLIPOL has over 5,000 employees in Germany and abroad. Our range encompasses more than 300 models and 150 TV armchairs. The former GmbH has grown into the POLIPOL Group, operating throughout Europe with a number of subsidiaries and a current annual turnover in excess of 400 million euro.
Today, POLIPOL is among the leading upholstered furniture manufacturers in Europe and is active around the world. The strategy – successful from the very beginning – of developing innovative products at a facility in Germany and producing them in Eastern Europe, is still being pursued today. In 2010, the company headquarters moved from Rahden to Diepenau in Niedersachsen, just a few kilometres away.
A future-oriented new building evolved, with open architecture, large showroom and modern office areas. Management, development, administration and customer communication are all centrally located here.
