What “made in Germany” means at moll
The merging of innovation and quality still makes us unique today, and extremely multifaceted. For us, quality is in the whole and in the details. Even though we now have an international reputation, at moll we rely on highly qualified local suppliers and intentionally support our region’s small suppliers. To monitor quality, from production of outside parts right to the final product, we stay in close communication with our suppliers. They are regularly visited and inspected by our quality managers.
Today we are proud that — together with our employees, suppliers and customers — we have become a leading provider of children’s desk furniture while still remaining a family-run business.
It’s no buzz phrase — moll is made in Germany
All moll products are developed and produced in house, where everything started almost 100 years ago: in the Swabian Alps of southern Germany. Started by Andreas Moll as a family business in 1925, moll is now run by Martin Moll of the third generation. moll employs the best technicians, engineers and developers to produce high-quality products. Our focus on quality, sustainability and safety guarantees that we will remain a reliable partner for a wide range of functional furniture even in the future.
Thanks to their longstanding reputation, our products carry the “Made in Germany” seal. It not only provides a great trust advantage among our international customers, but also stands for technical and design innovation. Lastly, we are the inventor of the height-adjustable desk that grows with the child.
moll is the future: Environment und sustainability
moll manufactures amidst the breathtaking nature of the Swabian Alps. This nearness to nature inspires the responsibility to protect this environment. “For the survival of humanity, the topic of sustainability is just as meaningful as the Industrial Revolution was in the last century, or as the ideas of the Enlightenment once were,” says CEO Martin Moll. “As a family company, with our closeness to and responsibility for our employees, we must take this issue especially to heart.” Therefore moll, as a third-generation family-owned company, commits itself to sustainability with the challenge: “Future-oriented business therefore means: We must leave an intact ecological, social and economic structure to our children and grandchildren. You can’t have one without the other.”
moll’s intention is to prevent as much as possible any negative environmental effects that are caused by its business activities. The applicable environmental laws and regulations are followed in their entirety. moll products are an interplay of ecology, economics and ergonomics. We don’t want to reduce the utility of our products due to our conduct in production. We are convinced that a product can only really be good if it comes about in a good way.Quality and design are the guarantors of our sustainability. Only the best materials and the greatest care in production ensure the lasting quality of our furniture. The concept is designed for lifelong use and true sustainability. Made in Germany, the furniture uses premium materials that ensure durability. Thanks to its timeless design, variable dimensions and interchangeable elements, the furniture outlasts the user’s changing preferences, while its functional components always keep it ergonomic. We manufacture exclusively in Germany. This ensures quality, jobs and adherence to social and ecological standards.
To protect our environment for coming generations, moll uses raw materials sustainably and efficiently. We are convinced that everyone can make a small contribution to environmental protection. We therefore acquire our raw materials from local producers and look for the appropriate seal of approval when purchasing. In this way, we can ensure that the materials are recyclable after use and can be used again.
Our production uses a wide variety of paints and varnishes, such as acrylic, powder and UV coatings. But they all have one thing in common. They are environmentally friendly, economical and recyclable.We use raw materials with high energy costs only sparingly as accents to keep our CO₂ footprint as small as possible. We therefore use such materials mainly in visible locations. Our sustainable conduct is also verified by several independent external institutes. moll products are certified with the Blue Angel, the FSC seal and the GS symbol. Certifications that reassure our customers in their decision.
moll furniture for life
Many moll furniture buyers replace their other furniture often. However, moll furniture is generally used for an extremely long time — and often passed on from generation to generation. What could be more sustainable? Even second-hand, moll furniture commands top prices, because it’s almost indestructible. If a component is ever damaged, you can still get replacement parts, thanks to our long replacement warranty. Then, when it’s time for new furniture, it should be from moll.
