Because every wooden frame is unique
The wooden slats are sorted according to their individual characteristics so that they match perfectly in colour and grain after gluing the mitres. For a perfect mitre we check the cut edges and - if necessary - these are reworked in colour. In addition, the corners are reinforced with glued-in special steel angles. This is how a unique wooden picture frame is lovingly handcrafted.
Since I was hired by the company HALBE in 2005, I have been able to get to know the work in almost every department. Three aspects have become particularly important to me in my work: the quality of the materials used, the care and cleanliness in the work and ultimately the perfection of each individual frame, so that I would hang it on my own wall at any time. What makes a frame my favorite? It has to be made of wood.
We are Thomas, Bernd and Oleg. Together we manufacture your wooden frames. Wood is a wonderful, natural material and convinces with its very own character. Every single one is absolutely unique.
I have been part of the company HALBE since 1999. I started in the wood department, which was still quite small at that time. So during my time of service I also passed through the departments basic elements, glass, aluminium frames and workshop. Since 2010 I have been permanently responsible for the wood frame department. For me, there is no one special day, because every day offers something new. That's what makes it so exciting.
