Furniture production in the Kaliningrad region - one among the few industries that developed in the post-Soviet period. Strengthening the furniture industry over the past 13 years was the result of many favorable factors that emerged in our region and in the Russian market as a whole.

Kaliningrad region - an exclave of the Russian Federation, situated on the Baltic Sea between Poland and Lithuania. The geographic location of the region - its proximity to Europe - has given businesses free access to modern technology, machinery, tools and other equipment for furniture production, and also to quality materials and components that allow to produce high quality products.



Since 1996, with the introduction of the law on special economic zone, all the above positive factors were added privileges in customs tax.

According to statistics, Kaliningrad furniture manufacturers produce up to 6% of all furniture made in Russia.
