IKEA Industry Lycksele AB
For many years, IKEA Industry Lycksele AB has produced untreated furniture for IKEA based on high-quality pine raw materials and the skilled knowledge of its employees. The current range mainly comprises untreated beds, tables, storage furniture and bookshelves. The operation in Lycksele was dimensioned for higher volumes than IKEA could take in within the specific range, and consequently failed to achieve profitability. In autumn 2016, some changes in the IKEA range will take place and the factory will make adjustments and focus production on this new demand. The new range will still have a base in untreated furniture, like beds and side units for shelves (IVAR), but furniture based on lamella glued panels will be discontinued. The new setup in Lycksele will require approximately 92 employees. The furniture factory in Lycksele is looking forward to an exciting future and development with a new owner who can attract new customers and develop a new market. IKEA will offer a delivery contract of 2 years for untreated beds and 3.5 years for storage side units. This is intended to support a smooth transition for the new owner to create possibilities to build up parallel production and sales to customers outside of IKEA. IKEA Industry will give preference to a new owner with the drive and capability to build up a long-term sustainable business with or without the IKEA volumes.Ekonomisk utveckling
In autumn 2016, IKEA Industry intends to downscale operations in Lycksele to approximately SEK 170-180 million which will be the basis for the sale of the company. The downscaled operations will mainly consist of untreated beds and IVAR side units. Growth opportunities to expand production and sales to at least SEK 400 million.
