"Upon choosing a winner, we took into account the sales revenue, exports, operating income and additional value added per employee in 2015. Also, Standard stood out with having many employees who are directly related to production and many of them are skilled workforce," explained Herkki Kitsing, CEO of the Estonian Furniture Industry Association. "During the assessment procedure, we also considered the company's activity in the events of the Estonian Furniture Industry Association, which indicates whether the company is interested in the welfare of their area as a whole and whether they have motivation to promote it."

"Recognition on behalf of our colleagues and other actors in the furniture industry sector is a big motivator to put in even more effort," said Priit Tamm, member of the management board of Standard AS. "Estonian furniture industry is doing well and in order to stand out from other members of the Estonian Furniture Industry Association, it is not enough to have just good economic indicators. You need to contribute by all means to the interior affairs of the company - to skilled workforce, for example. Skilled employees and a good team as a whole form the foundation of Standard. It is a great honour to earn the title "Estonian Furniture Manufacturer of the Year 2016" and we will definitely not start to rest on our laurels.“

Standard AS (www.standard.ee) is an Estonian capital-based company and also one of the leading office and hotel interior design providers in the Baltic States. Over 70% of the sales of Standard will be exported from Estonia to the Baltic States, Scandinavia, Western Europe and other places. Standard employs 209 people.
