Vestre enters an exciting new phase

Jan Christian Vestre has led Vestre through a period of rapid growth and pioneering projects ever since he took over as CEO in 2012. Today, Jan Christian is starting a new role as a minister and more specifically as Norway’s new Minister of Trade and Industry, and this will inevitably involve some changes for Vestre.

But change is nothing new for Vestre. We have been through several generational changes since Johs Vestre established the company back in 1947. Through these changes, we have kept an intense focus on our core values: design, quality, sustainability and social responsibility. Vestre continues to be a family business that wants to change the world, neighbourhood by neighbourhood, with sustainable and inclusive furniture.

We are now entering the most exciting phase in our history. In December, we start production at The Plus, the world’s most environmentally-friendly furniture factory. We are currently in the process of establishing a Design Lab which will lift our product development to new heights. We are working on completely new models for the circular economy. We are also growing faster than ever before internationally and entering several new markets.

The whole of Team Vestre would like to thank Jan Christian Vestre for his inspiring and visionary leadership over the past ten years. We share his faith that each and every one of us can change the world. A little. Now our Captain is leaving this ship, to motivate and lead many more people along the right path. Godspeed!
