POLKEMIC_POLAND, THE EDGE BANDING PRODUCTION FOR THE FURNITURE INDUSTRY
The Polkemic Company was established in the year 1993 in Rzeszow, Poland. The company is a specialist in the market of edge banding production for the furniture industry. The main focus of the company is the production of edge bandings and profiles used in furniture production.
In our first years on the market, 1993-2002, we were investing in the development and production of a wide range of products for industry. The main production centered around the production of ducts, conduits and casing tubes for running telecommunication and electrical installations. In the year 1997, Polkemic presented the first product for the furniture market – the “C” Profile. Its purpose was to protect the edges of boards that were used to produce furniture. The dynamic evolution of the carpentry industry, coupled with our products being so well received, our offer expanded with many different shapes, sizes, colors and also patterns. This product is available to this day in Polkemic’s offer. In the year 2000, as one of the first companies in Central-Europe, we began production of printed and uni-color edge bandings dedicated for the furniture production market. The following years, 2000-2010, can be characterized as an explosion of development of not only the company but the offer as well. The expansion of Polkemic’s edge band offer made us a leader in Central-Europe and also made it possible for us to export our products to new markets. Our pallet was enriched, not only by shapes or sizes, but by new thermoplastic materials, colors and structures of the edge bands. With the opening of our new facility in 2012, we began producing our edge bands with a new type of technology, referred to as a “Jumbo Roll”. Edge bands cut from a wide sheet of material have been implemented in the furniture manufacturing plants. Along with the new products from the new facility, the thermoplastic material referred to as ABS was put into production. In the following years, 2012-2017, Polkemic’s offer expanded even more with new products made from ABS and PVC. We started, as one of the first producers, production of edge bands with a special embossed structure, worktops as well as edges with a high gloss finish. Polkemic’s offer expanded with products such as veneer edges, end caps and cleaning solutions. In 2017, Polkemic opened a new chapter in its development. A new production facility with the latest products on offer was opened. For the last 24 years, the company has made great investments into the development and modification of technologies to suit our needs. Today, it is focused on modern technological solutions without worrying about risks or taking the responsibility for its products. Polkemic is a trustworthy partner which meets the expectations of its clients by creating a high quality product at a reasonable price. For more information:
