MATHY BY BOLS
Who we are
Fairly unusual in its sector, Mathy by Bols is a furniture manufacturer that has been able to solve the difficult problem of producing a high volume, quickly and with short, guaranteed lead times, while also maintaining the quality of genuine craftsman-made furniture. The Mathy by Bols catalogue offers a wide variety of products in many different colour ranges. Because each family and each child are unique, we want to offer you the widest possible choice.
Our first investment is in the human resource in our factory. We believe that work must be organised in a manner that respects the men who shape the furniture that will delight your children. Mathy by Bols employs almost 40 people, including many young people, to whom we are transferring our carpentry know-how and the enthusiasm to uphold the values of passionate, responsible craftsmanship.
"Produced by Mathy and Distributed by Bols", it is already more than 25 years since Jules Mathy and Jean-Marie Bols created the furniture company bearing their names (1987). Initially local, their ambitions are now European and even global. In just a few years, exports have grown from 10 to 85% and more than 10,000 items of furniture are produced annually. Mathy by Bols retains a local manufacturing base, but its main growth can be seen in increases in market share in neighbouring countries and beyond. And this is without ever compromising on the quality and innovation on which its reputation and increasing success are founded.
Since our workshops were established, they have performed a dual role. On the one hand, we design, manufacture and distribute our own furniture collections. And on the other hand, we respond to a wide range of sub-contracted orders from other furniture manufacturers or for exhibition equipment in wood, and special orders from groups.
Creating a bedroom for children or teenagers involves a number of stages. At Mathy by Bols, we do everything possible to ensure that we all work together to produce furniture with an impeccable finish that is consistent with the designer’s original idea. Designers of well-being
From the outset, the company has employed designers with very different perspectives to create its furniture. Professional men and women with wide experience in the art of creating excellence in furniture, our designers create children’s bedrooms which are also spaces in which to live and grow. The eclecticism of our designers produces a very varied, innovative catalogue that is always consistent with the philosophy on which our work has been based for more than de 25 years.
The company invests heavily in its human resources and the relationships between all its people. The craftsmen and carpenters who make up the team from across the generations work closely together, day after day, and pass on their know-how in a genuine willingness for continuous improvement and the spirit of a family business.
The spirit within the factory is one of always working in close collaboration. Prototypes are made of every item of furniture developed by one of our designers, and these are duly tested and commented on by everyone in the workshop and the commercial team before being put into production and marketed. We also attach great importance to the delivery of our products to our customers. For more information on our services, please go to our Delivery and assembly page.
Respectful, collaborative, creative and innovative: our company’s work and developments have been widely recognised. Although our aims are not limited to winning awards, we are nevertheless proud to have our work acknowledged by our peers, in particular through various awards. Awards like these recognise the passionate work of the entire team. But above all, true satisfaction comes from the loyalty of our customers, young and old!
