After accumulating experience in sales and marketing for 12 years, in 2001 our founder (1st generation businessman) entered a business of trading imported furniture by selling it to furniture dealers all over Maharashtra. During this process, a need to display the products arose, which gave birth to the idea of having our own display showroom. That is how Linus’s retail showroom was inaugurated on the auspicious day of Akshay Tritiya on 15th May 2002 at Dombivali.
Due to limitations in imported furniture such as standard sizes, colours and designs, and keeping in mind the client’s demand for customised furniture, we started sourcing ‘Customized Indian Furniture’ for our clientele in the year 2004, instead of importing from eastern countries.
After receiving consistent demand for more customization in furniture, it became a strong necessity to have our own manufacturing unit which we set up in 2008-09, and inaugurated on 14th May 2009, at Thane–Mankoli with 9,000 sq. ft area, with all machinery from Germany, Italy and Austria.
Considering the demand of machine-made customized modular furniture specifically in plywood, we started using only PLYWOOD as a basic material for home furniture too, as modular kitchens were already being manufactured in plywood since the beginning.
Initially, we begun with modular kitchens and home furniture, then we started catering to office segments as well in the year 2013. We started manufacturing school benches in 2014, restaurant and cafeteria furniture in 2015 and hotel furniture in 2016. This is how we gradually added new segments to our expertise.
We also started providing complete interior solutions, from space planning to key handover, in residential and commercial spaces since 2013.
We decided to delight our visitors by providing them an experience of woodworking process along with displaying finished goods under one roof, so in 2019 we inaugurated a full-fledged showroom at our factory set-up itself.
We have always kept quality as a first-priority since inception. So while setting up the factory, we bought machinery from Europe instead of heavily discounted machinery from Taiwan, China.
We have upgraded ourselves from time to time as per changing trends and demands over the years. Yes, we have learned the hard way; and we have timely and effectively overcome challenges of ever changing customer’s needs, technology & trade barriers.
