Denmark’s largest office furniture manufacturer celebrates 100th birthday


Duba-B8 headquarters in Bjerringbro.

In late August, the Danish office furniture company Duba-B8 holds a big anniversary celebration for employees and invited guests. The reason is that the company was founded in 1914 as a sawmill in the small Jutland town of Bjerringbro.

Already in the 1920s, the company began to produce furniture, and over the following decades the Bjerringbro Sawmill specialized in office furniture. Production eventually became more and more industrialized, and in the 1970s, the company changed its name to System B8: System stands for office furniture systems, B stands for Bjerringbro and 8 stands for the Series 800, which was the company’s first complete furniture system.

In 2005, System B8 merged with another Danish office furniture manufacturer, Duba Furniture Industries, which had been founded as a metal goods factory in 1922 and since the 1960s had  produced office furniture. Today, the merged company is known as Duba-B8 and as the leading Danish supplier of office furniture and customized working environments for both public and private clients. The main markets are Denmark and Norway, but there is also a growing export to the Far East.

Duba-B8 still has its headquarters in Bjerringbro. In Denmark, the company also has sales offices in Copenhagen, Odense and Aarhus, while outside the country sales offices are located in Oslo and Bergen, Norway, and in Singapore.
