What is unique about Royal Auping's production process?

Royal Auping produces only to customer orders. The company provides many options for customers to choose from but most of their products are custom made. This allows for more efficient production and less waste. "If you only produce what the people want, you have less waste", Ine says about their production process. Care is taken to ensure all products are long lasting and the production process takes into consideration what the world should look like tomorrow.  Sustainability has been in the company's DNA for a long time since they decided to take a more future oriented approach. In the past, the company had multiple locations but merged them all into one green factory. With inspiration from the lean production in the car industry, Royal Auping took lessons on how to make its production of mattresses, beds and box springs more efficient.
