E.E: What are the main areas of activity of the company?

The main area of ​​activity of Muvv is the manufacture of mechanisms and metal systems, including metal slides and specific hardware for extendable tables, including extension mechanisms, sliding rails, and other components, to ensure the good and long-lasting functioning of the products that our solutions integrate, as well as the optimization of limited spaces.

Our specialized team of engineers understands the importance of developing simple solutions, focusing on high standards in terms of user experience, which prove to be efficient in any day-to-day application. Our concepts undergo a meticulous development process of design, material selection, validation of methods and finite elements (FEA), to design sliding solutions that not only withstand the test of time but also stand out in the market, ensuring the strict conditions and performance standards that we impose on ourselves.

E.E: What’s the news about new products/services?

At this point, we cannot yet disclose details about the upcoming product launches, however, we can assure you that we are in a permanent process of innovation and improvement of current lines, as well as in the expansion of solutions integrated into our portfolio.

We will present some novelties from our portfolio at the next edition of Maderalia in Valencia, in May. Our focus remains on developing resources that improve the user experience, with an even smoother and quieter usability experience.

E.E: What are the ranges of products/services?

Muvv offers a wide range of systems and mechanisms to meet the diverse needs and preferences of the furniture and construction industries. As mentioned earlier, the range of products and services from Muvv – Sliding Systems is specifically aimed at mechanisms and metal systems, including slides and specific hardware for extendable tables, including extension mechanisms, sliding rails, and other necessary components to ensure the good and long-lasting functioning of the tables and space optimization subsectors.

At MUVV, we develop quality control systems that guarantee high-performance results and place us at the top of quality standards in our sector. Our products undergo rigorous processes to ensure durability and reliability, – compliance and temporal integrity are achieved through various cyclical usage checks, where our products are validated for their specific load through a testing process of 63,000 cycles. This exceptional result reflects extensive research, development, product design, and through continuous statistical process control (SPC).

Engineering and Features:

  1. Integrated mechanical systems

At Muvv, we develop advanced mechanical systems; sliding mechanisms, sliding systems, and lifting systems, aiming to deliver dynamic functionalities to the products/solutions that integrate our products. These systems are precisely designed to ensure smooth and silent movements, minimizing wear, and extending the lifespan and user experience of the products where they are applied.

  • Versatility

All Muvv systems are designed with multiple configurations and adjustments, allowing flexible adaptations to different needs and environments. These mechanical solutions offer quick transformation options, allowing for easy and efficient switching between configurations.

  • Space optimization

The incorporation of Muvv mechanical systems allows for the maximization of available space, especially in compact multifunctional environments. For example, in furniture products, the solution can be designed to offer additional hidden storage space, additional and expandable work areas, or even complete layout transformations.

  • Precision engineering

Each mechanical component is designed at Muvv with a focus on durability, stability, and safety, ensuring a reliable and worry-free user experience. Our drive and background in precision engineering are fundamental in ensuring structural integrity, even during movement operations.

As a service, our engineering and business development teams also provide deep technical-commercial support and training to our partners and customers.

E.E: What is the state of the market where you are currently active?

The market for furniture systems and mechanisms is extremely competitive today and experiences constant growth in demand for high-quality products that offer reliability, durability, ease of use and innovative design. The ecosystem of this market is global, with some world-class brands consolidating their position and market share. 

At Muvv – Sliding Systems, our current positioning is that of a brand challenging the status quo in the market.

E.E: What can you tell us about market trends?

The main market trends in this segment include the increasing demand and preference for solutions and hardware that allow tables to be extended easily, smoothly, and stably, with discreet and elegant designs that integrate harmoniously with different furniture styles and applications. Another trend that we follow and consider in the development of our solutions is the increasing popularity of high-end and minimalist designs.

At Muvv, we seek to develop high-value-added solutions with technological integration, based on in-depth study and knowledge of market needs, such as the growing focus on optimizing Home and Office spaces.

E.E: What are the most innovative products/services marketed?

From the market feedback perspective, Muvv’s most innovative products are the product lines where we apply new frame extension technologies.

An example of Muvv’s innovative drive is the Evoslide lines, which feature a fully automatic mechanical extension opening system. Another good example in Muvv’s portfolio is the Orbital line. This system, although functionally simple, presents an innovative value proposition in terms of aesthetics when applied to the final product. This solution is equipped with a double pivot center system, which allows the extension system not to be visible while the product, in this case, the table, is closed.

Muvv’s commitment to innovation is evident in various aspects of our products and processes. Muvv products are produced with high-quality materials and precision engineering for smooth and silent operation. The consumer experience is a crucial factor for us; conceptually, we develop simple solutions, with the rationale that the system can be used by a child, in complete safety.

E.E: What estimations do you have for the beginning of 2024?

At Muvv – Sliding Systems, we are very optimistic about the beginning of 2024.

We expect the market trends we mentioned earlier to continue, creating a favorable environment for Muvv’s growth, leveraged by the increasing demand in the business segments in which we operate, through an effective response to the growing needs of users, thereby impacting the value chain in which we operate.

We maintain the forecast for expanding our product offering and distribution network throughout Europe in 2024.

In the first quarter of 2024, we also launched the construction of the new Muvv production unit, which aims to triple our delivery capacity in a phased deployment.
