The Fortrade d.o.o. company has been founded in year 1992. 

The number of the business partners (suppliers and costumers) has gradually increased, and the company expanded its activities to the entire Slovenian furniture market. This was its primary goal at the beginning of its foundation. This resulted in the need for new capacities. Besides enlarging the drive park and the number of the employees in years 1997 and 1998, the idea of a new, bigger storage hall emerged. The idea was realized in October 1999 when the opening of the new 1900 m2 large storage hall took place.

Fortrade Company has kept on expanding its programme and gaining new suppliers by offering their costumers a colorful furniture offer of a wide spectrum. In next years company’s management revealed that the existing storage capacities had not guaranteed the most optimal management. This lead to the opening of the new 2500 m2large business premises in August 2003, when the 10th anniversary of the company was celebrated. The new business-storage premises include also a 700 m2 large show room in which the offer for our partners is on display. The same building also includes the business premises.

In 2007 at company's 15th anniversary company's business premises were expanded to 8000 m2 of warehouse and 1000 m2 of showroom as a result of growth.

Fortrade is also ecologically responsible company. With building up 300 kV solar plant capacity in year 2012 we save spreading of 175 tone CO2 yearly to the atmoshpere.

Today, in contrary to the past when our domestic market prevalied, export sales represent around 2/3 of our turnover. Biggest increase we record in Germany.
