Behind every branch at Leggett & Platt is a story: How they’ve grown or faced challenges, how they’ve developed and defined their culture, and how their products support unique customers. Trio Line Polska’s story is one of growth and great craftsmanship.
Based in Poland and acquired by L&P in early 2015, Trio Line joined our Work Furniture group to produce high-end upholstered furniture for some of the most recognized European furniture brands – the most iconic being the Egg Chair produced for Fritz Hansen. In fact, the branch’s main production is for the dining and lounge chair markets.
What makes Trio Line stand out is the artistry that goes into each piece of furniture. The attention to detail, precision, and beautiful finish make their products uniquely high-end. Additionally, since joining L&P, Trio Line has been able to align their designs with Genesis Seating to push their products worldwide for customers such as Steelcase, Herman Miller, and Haworth.
Bjorn Bahnsen heads the Trio Line management team. In 1999, Bjorn purchased his family’s Danish furniture company, Trio Line A/S. Four years later, he started Trio Line Polska to gradually shift production from Denmark to Poland. Since 1999, Bjorn has grown the business from 6 employees to over 500 – and they are some of our most dedicated. According to Wojtek Mytko, VP of Production: “None of the competition we give other producers would be possible without our talented team of employees.” Continue reading
For our Environmental Affairs team, business as usual means “saving the world.” They collaborate with our branches worldwide to ensure compliance with environmental regulations and to build a companywide environmental sustainability program. Their work often exists in the details – the parts per million, the gallons of liquid, the kwh of electricity – but has big impacts on our planet and our people.
Environmental compliance for all Leggett & Platt branches around the world means ensuring that air emissions, wastewater discharges, waste handling, and chemical use and storage are in full compliance with all local, state, and federal government regulations. At L&P, environmental compliance is not voluntary or just a good idea; it is mandated by the L&P Board of Directors.
To support that mandate, Environmental Affairs works hard to provide our branch operations managers the resources they need to develop and maintain their site-specific environmental compliance programs. Continue reading
If you’ve ever worked in the service industry or planned an event of any size, you know how demanding these roles can be. Nancy Robinson and Tammy Snyder work in the Facilities Department at L&P’s Corporate Office. Both can face hectic days, but they do so with smiles on their faces.
In the flurry of the service industry, you have to have a little fun, and Nancy and Tammy are two of our best at doing just that.
Andrea Dold was drawn to Leggett & Platt for the opportunity to travel and work with people across the world. After studying accounting, fraud examination, and technical writing at Pittsburg State University, she started her career with L&P in December 2010.
Andrea holds a unique position with the company because she works remotely. In fact, she recently moved even further away from the Corporate office. This past June, Andrea relocated to Ingolstadt, Germany, primarily due to her husband’s position in the Air Force. She will be living and working there for the next two years.
Our Automotive Group is the world leader in automotive seating comfort systems. But you won’t only find us in your seat – we also develop and supply motors, actuators, mechanical cables, and wireless charging units too.

Last Friday, manufacturers across the United States celebrated Manufacturing Day, also known as MFG Day, by opening their doors to showcase the potential of modern manufacturing. It’s a day meant to celebrate modern manufacturing and inspire the next generation of manufacturers.
This year, eight L&P locations hosted MFG Day activities:
Among these participating branches, we welcomed over 1,200 guests! Some notable distinguished guests included Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp, State Senator Bill Cowsert, and State Representative Vernon Jones at Monroe Spring. Flex-O-Lators welcomed Missouri Senator Ron Richard, Missouri Chamber President Dan Mehan, former MO Representative Tom Flanigan, and Chad Massman, Project Manager for the Dept of Economic Development.
Here are a few favorite photos from the day!
