History - RBM with roots in Denmark
The Rabami (RBM) company was established in 1975.
In 1998 RBM acquired the company Smithco Line, which manufactured canteen and conference furniture, and built a new factory and showroom in Vissenbjerg on Fyn in Denmark. A year later the companies merged into the RBM Group A/S. The company grew through the acquisition of the Dutch project furniture factory CAR in 2002. The same year all activities were merged into one company: RBM A/S.
In 2004 RBM A/S acquired the Norwegian office chair manufacturer STÅL OG STIL. In 2006 all manufacturing was moved to Fjerritslev in Denmark. Ratos, a Swedish investment company, acquired 100% of the shares in RBM and Swedish RH Form. In 2007 the Norwegian office chair manufacturer, HÅG, was added to the Ratos Group, as a consequence, Scandinavian Business Seating was established, and today the company sells seating solutions globally.
Danish furniture, in Sweden
Scandinavian Business Seating moved the production of RBM’s products from Denmark to Sweden in 2009. The factory is currently located in Nässjö in Småland, at the heart of the Swedish furniture industry. The Danish soul of the RBM brand, with a long history of furniture design, is tailored for the Swedish and Småland traditions in furniture manufacturing. It's the best of both worlds.
The ambition is to further rationalize the group’s total production capacity. This is also a step in strengthening RBM's products and brand, and will contribute towards improved competitiveness and our ability to serve our customers.
