Once the legendary furniture factory in Szamotuły, historically associated with the respected German family Koerpel, became a part of a bigger company located in Oborniki. Wielkopolskie Fabryki Mebli experienced mass redundancies. While the town was coming to terms with it, the factory opened a branch in Słonawy. Some employees found work at the new site. However, a few years later one of the oldest and biggest Polish furniture makers went bankrupt and it seemed like the furniture industry was to disappear from the region. Sometime after Tappol, which had its site in Słonawy where the old Wielkopolskie Fabryki Mebli used to be, opened a new site in the Szamotuły region. And so a new chapter in the longstanding tradition of furniture making had been opened.
