Established in 1988 and located in Lahti in southern Finland, Pedro Ltd is a leading manufacturer of specialised furniture for ship installations and other demanding applications.

For more than 30 years, Pedro Ltd has been known for combining Scandinavian design, high quality, and sustainable and ecological manufacturing principles.

”We manufacture furniture for ships – luxury cruisers in particular – but also for land-based applications,” explains Mr. Juha Lehtonen, CEO for Pedro Ltd.

”Currently, we have started product deliveries for the ’Mardi Gras’ cruise ship ordered by Carnival Cruises, scheduled for delivery in October 2020.”

The ’Mardi Gras’ is a 350-metre vessel, capable of carrying more than 5,000 passengers. The ship will be equipped with theatres, restaurants and show lounges.

”Typically, we deliver customised pieces of furniture designed by architects. In addition to upholstered furniture with metal frames, ships will need armchairs, bar stools, benches, sofas, and integrated TV and display screens. Designers are looking for unique and high-grade solutions for the interiors.”


According to Mr. Lehtonen, shipbuilding is a world of its own, requiring specialised know-how – and the right attitude.

”Product quality is essential. Knowledge of fire-resistant materials is a must. Additionally, you need to deliver the products to the right place at exactly the right time, no matter what,” notes Lehtonen. Apart from onboard installations, Pedro Ltd has recently delivered specially designed furniture for the new terminal at Helsinki-Vantaa Airport, plus acoustic panels for Sibelius Music Academy’s renovated classrooms.
