Fermob Outdoor Furniture Factory

Our Visit

We've visited the delightful Fermob factory just outside Lyon in France on a number of occasions for fact finding missions and business meetings with the owners. Despite being a global company Fermob is still essentially a family business with its workers drawn from a wide rural catchment area close to the wine making areas of the Rhone valley.


The Fermob Factory

The name Fermob was created by joining 'Fer' (meaning iron) and 'Mob' (derived from Mobilier - furniture), and as to be expected in a metal factory, the mixture of sights and sounds certainly make it a fascinating place at times from what is still a fairly labour intensive plant. From the twang of hammer on anvil (the 1900 range is beautifully hand made) through the sparks from the automatic welding bays and onto the serenity of the massive powder coating lines, the care that is taken to make each piece of furniture is evident.

The Fermob Brand

The growth of the Fermob brand over the past view years has presented the factory with many challenges. One of Fermob's great strengths is their ability to make a wide range of furniture in a wide range of beautiful colours, however, with many items being bespoke and made to order this means keeping in stock of millions of parts. Fermob furniture is now seen throughout the world and each country has favourite colours.



Ordering your Fermob

This, coupled with the relatively short selling season for outdoor furniture poses many logistical challenges for the factory at key times. The lead time we quote in the UK, for items not in stock, is 4/6 weeks. This can shorten or lengthen at certain times of the year, but it is best to order well in advance if you are ordering for a specific occasion or date. We do place advance orders for popular colours/sizes that arrives in early spring each year. We then get weekly/bi-weekly deliveries throughout the year.
