LUBE has always conducted its business with the customer’s needs in mind, as well as safety, technological innovation, design and above all the solidity and quality of its products. This is the reason why LUBE has obtained prestigious international certifications over the years, for instance:
LUBE Industries S.r.l., after having obtained the UNI EN ISO 9001:1994 certification, achieved its goal of attaining certification for its Quality Management System in compliance with the international UNI EN ISO 9001:2008 (Vision 2000) standard, by displaying an ability to supply products which conform to the specifications and expectations of the customer and to the requirements of applicable laws. In particular, the standard’s target of improving customer satisfaction with the effective implementation of the System and the ongoing improvement of the company’s business interests should be highlighted. This general principle is put into practice via a series of specific requirements. These must address the fact that Customer satisfaction has to be the goal at all times, not only in terms of the strict technical or technological aspects of the operation (the product), but also in terms of each aspect of the relationship with the Customer (the service).
Regarding the production of its kitchen structure components, the LUBE Group has decided to only use materials that release very low levels of formaldehyde. These comply with the F4 star standard, as defined by the JIS regulation. This standard is certified by the Japanese government, which is the most stringent when it comes to environmental safeguards.
LUBE only uses ecological panels in its furniture which are exclusively supplied by certified companies. “Ecological panels are a guarantee that you have chosen furniture of absolute quality without damaging the environment.”
“CUORE VERDE” ECO-PANELS
The panels bear the “CuoreVerde” brand, a synonym for the “green” values that are the foundation of the Group’s production policies.
The CuoreVerde eco-panel is an industrial product which is manufactured with reused wood-based materials, thus avoiding the need to cut down new trees.
The recycling process begins with in-depth checks on the incoming material. Any materials that are rejected are either sent for recycling or disposed of according to law. Respect for nature
Glue with low formaldehyde content has been used in the manufacture of this product. The manufacturing process takes place with the greatest respect for current environmental rules.
Certified quality system
The CuoreVerde eco-panel is produced by companies who have UNI EN ISO 9001:2008 certified quality systems.
Faer Ambienti was founded between late 1995 and early 1996 by the Gruppo Industriale Lube. The young and dynamic company males bedroom furniture and decorating accessories. Its capable and determined management and staff have set their sights on becoming leaders in the furniture segment.

All the products that are still made by hand are designed here and created using advanced technology. The production system at Faer Ambienti is one of the foremost examples in Italy of robotic woodworking.
Production line intergration software provides a complete overview of the production sustem, whereby a single centre optimizes the performance of each indivual machine involved. This makes it possible to create technically advanced products with an eye for detail. The result is the superior quality of each piece which can compete with even higher-end furniture.
