About the company

JITONA is a traditional Czech brand with its own production of solid and veneered furniture. The main focus of production was the production of furniture components and assemblies for IKEA and its own design assemblies of veneered and solid wood furniture.

The production of veneered and solid products for IKEA is the domain of the Klatovy production plant and accounted for about 2/3 of the company's total sales. Furthermore, JITONA focused on the production of its own collection of solid wood and veneer furniture - living walls, bedrooms and dining rooms. Most of the production was exported. The target markets were mainly Germany, Great Britain, Sweden and Denmark. Since 2013, Jitona has also produced professional loudspeakers (plywood construction including special finishes) for the Bosch brand sold under the Dynacord and Electro Voice brands (this production continues in 2020/21).

In 2019, thanks to a significant change in the portfolio of products purchased by IKEA and the pressure to sell at lower prices (while operating costs rather increased), it was decided to close the plant in Třebíč and Klatovy, including the Company's own furniture production. Furniture production was subdued and Jitona split into separate industral parks, which are operated as rental premises for production and logistics.
