Falco Sopron

Since its foundation in 1956, the company has played a leading role in the Hungarian office furniture market.

Between 1996 and 2002 sales more than doubled.

The recession on the market and in the branch has led to – through a change of ownership – the renewal of the company.

The essence of the new situation is that it unites the former assets of the company with the advantages provided by the new owner.

Our customers have always seen our company as a reliable partner that produces furniture with good price-value ratios and that operates in a “German” order.

The product range of the reorganized company follows market needs in a more flexible way. The former range has been increased by mobile and fitted furniture, space dividers and wall-boards enabling us to furnish health care-, and educational buildings, hotels and other community spaces.
