Modus enters into partnership with global furniture brand Teknion

Furniture manufacturer Modus has announced a new partnership with Canadian furniture brand Teknion.

The investment supports Modus’ international growth plans and expands Teknion’s portfolio of social and collaborative products. The partnership unites two brands each with a distinct design heritage and strong sustainability drive.

Canadian manufacturer Teknion has a history of carefully building strategic partnerships that diversify its product offerings and draw on the unique strengths of its partners. Modus is the first British manufacturer to become a Teknion partner and its manufacturing facility in Somerset enables Teknion to significantly reduce the carbon footprint of its products for the UK and European markets.

Recently certifying as a B Corporation, Modus will continue to operate as an independent company, retaining its own brand and servicing its dealer network whilst expanding its international reach.

“We are really excited about this new venture,” said Modus Managing Director, Jon Powell. “Our companies share an entrepreneurial spirit with a long history of working with some of the world’s leading designers. Design has always been central to our philosophy, and we are very happy to be partnering with a global manufacturer that understands the value of great design.”

“Teknion has a significant global presence, and we expect to see the partnership drive strong growth for Modus”, says Powell. “For Teknion, our portfolio meets the demand for a softer, more inclusive, and collaborative workplace.“

“We are very selective in our strategic partnerships and Modus shares our high standards for design, quality, craft, and sustainability,” says David Feldberg, President and CEO of Teknion. “A passion for design connects Modus to Teknion and their focus on social and collaborative collections makes them a natural fit. It’s exciting to be welcoming Modus into the Teknion family.”
