SIMON is an innovator and premium supplier of high-quality furniture fitting systems, and manufactures highly functional, complex products with combined damping and push-to-open functions for the furniture industry, e.g. for installation in drawers and cabinets, as well as damping systems for sliding and hinged doors of many different sizes and weight classes. All of these solutions are key focal areas for our company today. Numerous patents and outstanding development and manufacturing knowledge secure our market position around the world. Well over 50% of our products are exported.
We produce a large percentage of our products for the furniture manufacturing and supply industry in large-scale series; however, special designs and exclusive small series designed around customer needs have also been part of our everyday business right from the start. Our practical product ideas are also applied in specialized niches and specialty furnishings, for instance in athletic facilities.
When it was first founded in 1918, the SIMON company manufactured components for the clock making industry; it soon also included sheet metal and punched components, mirror mounts, and cabinet shelving in its portfolio of products. In 1938, SIMON created a separate area for manufacturing furniture fittings. We have been collecting experience in creating functional fittings for many different types of furnishings ever since. Our Fittings Technology division has grown continuously, keeping up with quickly shifting trends in the home, bath, bedroom, and office areas. Since its inception, it has equipped generation upon generation of furniture pieces with opening and closing systems.
