Andreu World’s beginnings date back to 1955 when their founder, Francisco Andreu Marti, who at 17 years old had the entrepreneurial vision to convert his family’s small woodworking workshop into a company dedicated to the manufacturing of bentwoods parts, assembling and finishing of chairs.
Over nearly 60 years, Andreu World has grown and evolved convinced that their philosophy, attention to detail, excellence and good design, is the fundamental guide to continue being who they are now and in the future.
