Our Vision and Mission

The history of Svend Nielsen Ltd. finds its roots in its founder - Svend Nielsen. Born in 1930 in the great Scandinavian cabinet-making city of Copenhagen, Denmark, Svend Nielsen took to cabinet-making at an early age - entering an apprenticeship when only fourteen. There, he cultivated a love for wood and fine craftsmanship that would remain with him the rest of his life.
In 1953, shortly after the end of WWII, Svend Nielsen immigrated to Toronto, Canada where he established his family and continued to pursue his career in the cabinet-making industry. In the 25 years that followed, he worked in the twin areas of design and production management, alongside his loving wife, Bodil Nielsen.
In 1978, drawing upon his accumulated years of experience in fine furniture manufacturing, Svend Nielsen launched the company named after him. Beginning with a small rented facility in Mississauga, the company has gone through three expansions over the years, currently residing in its own facility at 55 Penn Drive, Toronto, Canada. The company has grown from a small family concern to include a fine cadre of skilled cabinetmakers, project management team, and office support staff. Svend Nielsen Ltd. services clients across Canada, the USA, and abroad. Reflecting upon the past, we are grateful for the many fine clients that we have had the privilege of serving.
With an eye to the future, we envision servicing our existing and future clients with even greater passion and excellence! We look forward with great anticipation to the opportunity of assisting you with your contract furniture requirements.
