Sofa Club looks to the future following Tessa investment

Sofa retailer Sofa Club has announced a strategic partnership with Polish sofa manufacturer Tessa Group.

This development involves Tessa Group acquiring a significant shareholding in Sofa Club, solidifying a decade-long relationship and unlocking substantial growth opportunities for both companies.

Founded in 2012 by Louis Rose and Tom O’Neill, Sofa Club has consistently demonstrated impressive growth and positioned itself as a formidable presence in the UK market. The partnership with Tessa Group, a respected family-run business with over 30 years of industry experience, marks a pivotal chapter in Sofa Club’s journey toward further success.

Louis Rose, Co-Founder of Sofa Club, expressed his excitement, saying: “We’ve been buying from them since the beginning. They’ve supported us throughout the years and understand our vision. It’s a perfect fit, and I’m thrilled to welcome them aboard.”

Tessa Group operates two state-of- the-art factories, MT Kaczmarek and Tessa, with a collective workforce of over 400 staff. They have firmly established themselves in the European market. Sofa Club’s decade-long association with Tessa Group makes this investment a natural progression in their partnership.

Józef Kaczmarek, founder of Tessa Group, said: “I’ve had the privilege of witnessing Sofa Club’s incredible journey from its humble beginnings to its current prominence in the industry. Being a part of that growth has been immensely rewarding. Now, as a shareholder in Sofa Club, I am even more delighted to contribute to this exciting brand’s future.”

As part of this investment, Tessa Group is currently in the process of building a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility spanning an impressive 13,000 square meters. This facility will play a pivotal role in supporting Sofa Club’s growth in the coming years.

Tom O’Neill, Co-founder of Sofa Club, emphasized the significant advantages of partnering with a manufacturer, highlighting the potential for accelerated product development and innovation. “This partnership is game-changing; we now have an unrivalled end-to-end solution. We can develop sofas quickly, maintain inventory on the shelves, and deliver them to customers with unprecedented speed and convenience. I’m excited for the future!”
