Since its founding in 1979, Mitab has continuously evolved, driven by the vision, dedication, and determination of founder Jan-Olof Torstensson. An ambitious entrepreneur with a talent for the technical, Jan-Olof established within Mitab an uncompromising dedication to quality and design excellence.
Jan-Olof keenly understood the need to constantly adapt and this evolution has continued under the leadership of the next generation of Torstenssons, Jan-Olof’s two sons Peter and Marcus, who were handed responsibility of the company in 2004.
Our most important resource is our employees and the skills they have. On Mitab we safeguard individual rights and opportunities. Therefore, we work continuously together with union representatives, legislators and our staff to ensure a safe and secure work environment where all may be apparent.
We are also committed outside the company as much as we can. We think Mitab have a responsibility to care for the local environment. We support such different types of activities locally and nationally.
Mitab are certified to the international quality standard ISO9001. Our aim is to constantly develop and refine our processes to ensure a high and reliable quality.
Mitab is certified to the international environmental standard ISO14001. For us it is extremely important that in a sustainable way, protecting both our immediate environment and the wider environment.
Here at Mitab we take our environmental responsibilities very seriously. Thats why it is important for us to design and manufacture in a responsible and sustainable manner. And it is equally important for that to be easily identified by our customers so that they can make informed, responsible decisions when choosing furniture. To do this, our furniture undergoes independent assessment and certification by third-party organisations, such as the Nordic Swan Ecolabel and Möbelfakta
”We are proud of our local heritage and roots. Manufacturing locally within our own factories gives us much greater control and adaptability over design and production even at low quantities, ensuring the highest quality and the most stringent environmental standards are adhered to.
To do as much as possible as close as possible is our philosophy ”
– Marcus Torstensson, Design Manager
