POLIPOL was founded in 1990 in Rahden, a small town near Minden. A combination of being situated in Germany’s creative furniture centre, Westphalia; the highest motivation from all involved; and a great deal of entrepreneurial skill has allowed the company to grow rapidly. Thus, what was then POLIPOL GmbH has quickly turned into a group which is active throughout Europe with several subsidiaries.
The original concept is still being pursued to this day: to coordinate and develop products in Germany and to locate the production abroad. In the early years, Rahden and Zehdenick in Berlin were the focal points of the company. From here, with a total of 153 employees, the first upholstered furniture lines were put onto the market. Today, POLIPOL is a medium-sized owner-managed company with approximately 4,900 employees both in Germany and abroad.
