Wood Furniture production ExPANDS with new machinery

Binni Shpk is one of the leaders of furniture production and sales in Kosovo. The company was established in 1989 and is one of the pioneers in production of kitchens, bedrooms, partitions, doors and windows from plastic and wood in Kosovo. Binni has continuously invested in technology and staff and over time developed a well-trained workforce that meets company and market needs. Its products are sold in the European markets, where 40% of total sales are exports to EU countries like Germany and France. Facing an increasing demand for its products the company needed to expand its production capacity.

The company invested in new machines: CNC Machining Centre, Milling Machine and Volpato Levigatrice. These machines help the company to increase production and expand into new markets. The investment into the modern technologies  also improved the environmental balance of the company, the product quality and safety were also improved, with processes standardized and simplified as well as optimized wood design, shaping and finishing. Last but not least, the investment improved Occupational Health and Safety standards since the new machinery is fully automated providing an integrated approach with higher efficiency and higher worker comfort and safety.

Binni Shpk received free technical assistance to optimize its investment project and a 15% cash-back grant after the successful project verification, funded by the European Union. 

With the investment, the company now meets a wide variety of European standards, including:

  • Regulation (EU) No 305/2011 laying down harmonized conditions for the marketing of construction products and repealing Council Directive 89/106/EEC
  • Directive 2006/42/EC on machinery
