Wherever we are needed
As part of the Royal Ahrend group we are one of the top five office furniture producers in Europe. We are able to offer customers a reliable and seamless service through our twenty-five offices on five continents. Our factories can be found at six locations around the world and we have delivered orders in over one hundred countries.
A comprehensive solution for all types of commercial interior
We help our clients transform their workplace environments into places full of inspiration and productive collaboration, where both employees and clients feel good.
Inspiring workplace environment of the future
In the near future, we do not expect that people will spend the majority of their time in one spot. Therefore, we are working today on the assumption of the Hybrid Working Community, in which employees themselves influence the organisation and method of their work.

The bringing together of brands
Royal Ahrend designs furniture and provides a tailored service for commercial interiors of all types with a 3-brand furniture portfolio - Ahrend, Gispen and Techo. Each of them is a leader in their market and some of them can boast a history going back over a hundred years.
Tradition since 1896
Although since 2021 we have been writing a common history under one name, the separate stories of several individual brands are intertwined.
The earliest chapter is linked with the entrepreneurial spirit of the young Jacobus Ahrend and started in 1896 in the Dutch capital.

Our approach to design is simple: Less is always more
In our long history, you will find a whole range of important persons and innovations that have shaped and moved our vision forward. They also contributed to the cultivation of the design language of our products and the enhancement of our services. Since 1896 we have been building on the timeless values of Dutch design and we strive to adapt them to current needs.
Royal Ahrend: Design is a tradition, not a trend
Art is part of our DNA
Ahrend (formerly TECHO) and art have gone hand in hand for three decades now. From the moment we decided to focus on designing and manufacturing furniture for commercial interiors, we have supported projects from the arts that are close to us. We have always strived to connect our activities with the world of art, drawing from it valuable inspiration and additional energy for our work.
The Ahrend factory in Prague is one of the most modern furniture factories in Central and Eastern Europe. Since the 1990s we have been gradually expanding our production, increasing its capacity and productivity, and introducing new technology. In 2023 we installed a completely new production line from German firm Homag. This will help us meet our ambitious environmental goals.
