In what ways do you, the customer, benefit from Tentipi having its own factory in China?

Better quality since our own production gives us maximum control over the production process. Moreover, in China we have been able to exercise more far-reaching control of our materials than here at home in Sweden.

Advanced products at acceptable prices.

Sophisticated materials and technical solutions since we can intensify our development work and cooperate with high-tech, Asian fabric and material manufacturers.

The knowledge that your tent has been manufactured under satisfactory working conditions.

Since a few years back, we have also been running our own fully-owned tent manufacturing business in the town of Qingdao in China, where we make all our portable Nordic tipis, i.e. the Adventure Nordic tipis. By establishing ourselves in China, we have prepared for and built our future. It has enabled us to achieve things that we could only have dreamt about here at home. In our Chinese factory, we conduct a very high standard of quality control with specialized testing equipment. Among other things, we have built up a rain test room, which we believe is the only one of its kind, where we shower the tents for a long period of time. This rain test is a very important full-scale test which detects faults which would not be found if we only tested the materials. Setting up a company in China has also enabled us to build up extensive collaboration with authorized testing institutes which would have been impossible in Europe because of high costs. We are also able to work together with manufacturers of high-tech, Asian fabrics and materials. This helps us to continue our efforts to be at the front edge when it comes to the quality of materials in each respective price category on the tent market.

The fact that we own our tent manufacturing business in China ourselves enables us to apply Tentipi’s corporate culture with its standards as regards quality and also the values that we believe are important. Being able to manufacture our own products under our own roof gives us much better quality and control than if we were to buy them from a third party. It also means we can guarantee that our products fulfil the expectations that our customers have every right to have. In brief, we are working in Asia in order to improve quality rather than to reduce prices.

As well as wanting to provide people with tents of world-leading class and with unique features, we are also strongly inspired by a desire to do good where we work. This has had concrete effects in many different ways in our work in China. Moreover, we support SOS Children’s Villages in China by helping to give children in the town of Nanchang a happy and secure childhood.
