Morgan Furniture Case Study

About Morgan

Morgan Furniture is a wholly British, design orientated, business making seating and tables for the contract market from its dedicated 4500m2 factory in Hampshire.

At Morgan they believe the design and manufacture of truly original, high-quality furniture is the result of passion, care, design integrity, experience, craftsmanship and an unfaltering dedication to quality. This commitment could not be realised without fully integrating the design and manufacturing processes. At their factory and studio in Hampshire they start the process with trees and finish with beautifully crafted chairs.

Their Mission

To be a leading designer and manufacturer of contract seating, building strategic partnerships with designers and specifiers and working to provide quality interior solutions.

Morgan is a passionate exponent of lean manufacture and, through its actions, clearly demonstrates how this approach delivers mutual benefits for company and customer. Significant reductions in waste have produced corresponding environmental gains and cost savings for the customer while, at the same time, operational efficiency has been increased resulting in improved lead times and even higher quality of product and service to the customer. They employ highly skilled, committed and motivated people, with a passion for furniture, and an ability to interpret and satisfy their customers’ needs.
