The PAUSE chair: 
What the client has to say about it

“We chose to expand our PAUSE Chair series using a variant of PUR because of the properties this material offers, which make it ideal for use in the care sector. PUR lives up to the stringent demands regarding easy cleaning, top quality and the ability to withstand daily wear and tear that this sector requires. One of the main reasons for choosing Tinby as our supplier was that we are familiar with their services from earlier projects and know that they are able to deliver the high level of quality that our customers demand, are meticulous in their work and have many years of experience in the field. It is important for us to always choose suppliers that live up to our core values, and who are loyal and trustworthy partners with regards to quality, know-how and reliable delivery.”

DE: A growing interest in flexible PUR

Disruption – a new word that has gradually crept into the Danish language. We use the word “disruption” when a new form of technology or a new product unexpectedly and very rapidly transforms or replaces existing products or models. Disruption kills an existing market, existing industry or technology and replaces it with a new and better product. It is both destructive and creative at the same time. Disruption is thus a sign of a world that is going through change, which we must adapt to if we are to survive.

Calling the trend of replacing wood with PUR within the furniture industry disruptive is probably something of an exaggeration. Nevertheless, something does seem to suggest that changes are on the way …

The technical department - our strength

When you work with the advanced development and the production of technical items in materials such as polyurethane, as we do at Tinby, it is important that we are able to live up to the responsibility we have of being a strong business partner for our clients. Things are happening fast in the area of development. Markets and organisations are constantly evolving. And our clients constantly challenge us with precise requirements concerning quality and efficiency levels which we need to live up to.
Our success, and thus the client’s success, is defined during the development and implementation phase. That is why we continually strive to improve how we do things, find more rational ways of working, and also why we continually work at creating the best, most highly-qualified team possible – not least of all in our technical department.

A plastic process technician apprenticeship – it’s the way to go!

Meet Martin Rungstrøm. 27-year-old Martin is a plastic process technician apprentice at Tinby A/S in Søndersø, and is one of the approximately 60 young people who are trained annually for a future career in the plastics industry. 

At Tinby A/S, one of our important tasks is to train the labour force of the future. “We need skilled labour, so we take our training responsibilities very seriously“, says Jan Nørgaard, head of production at Tinby. “We are a company that has existed for 45 years, and during all those years, we have trained both plastic process technicians and other professionals on an ongoing basis. Hiring an apprentice means shouldering some of the responsibility for shaping a young person during their training and helping them to understand their profession and the skills it requires”, adds Nørgaard.
