Rype Remanufacturing Services

Helping furniture manufacturers profit from the Circular Economy

With customers asking for second life furniture, the Circular Economy offers business growth opportunities. We help manufacturers to increase their revenues, profits and sustainability through remanufacturing.

We can be engaged as a consultant or become a furniture remanufacturing partner able to fill gaps in your knowledge and remanufacturing processes.

Rype has profitably remanufactured furniture from most popular brands, so we may already be familiar with your products.

Circular Economy opportunities 

  1. Profitably remanufacture clients’ old furniture with new parts
  2. Access new, lower price point customer segments
  3. Reduce total tender prices with higher new furniture margins
  4. Win sustainability-focussed new clients, architects and designers

Are you only selling your furniture once?
