The Blue Order – biggest ever
It was wiped and paddled at the weaving mill during the autumn of 2018. The reason was not that Christmas was approaching but around a certain “blue order”. An order that came to be our biggest ever with 48,000 items. Customers and Klässbol’s customer, Hanne Vedel, are known around the world for their high-quality fabrics in timeless design for, among others, the UN’s main building in New York, the Folketinget in Damark, hundreds of churches and countless homes and offices. This particular order job would finally be given on Christmas gift to Danfoss Denmark’s 6,000 employees, and since Danfoss previously owned Thermia in Arvika, discretion was important so that the surprise was not to be spoiled.
98 million meters of blue yarn was used to make 24,000 napkins and 24,000 tablets. It was scrapped, woven, calendered (mangeled), appeared, healed, made up, ironed, packaged and finally shipped over Öresund. Why the blue was chosen by Hanne and her team was because that color is considered suitable for kitchen utensils best.
Everything was to be delivered a few weeks before Christmas and when the weaving mill had previously received larger orders, a shorter period could have been set aside without having to push the workflow too much. But this time it was different when it took a great deal of early summer and autumn to get ready. This meant that some adjustments in workflows had to be changed. The production line was strict and everyone really did their utmost to get the best result possible.
The work in itself was a nice challenge for the company and a unique opportunity to show that we can receive really big orders.
