We are Inter IKEA Systems B.V., the owner of the IKEA Concept and worldwide IKEA franchisor.
The IKEA vision is to create a better everyday life for the many people.
The IKEA vision is shared by all of us. All IKEA retailers and all other companies operating under the IKEA trademarks and each IKEA co-worker contribute to this vision.
We contribute to the IKEA vision by listening to the IKEA retailer’s needs, sharing good ideas and solutions, and providing the tools and knowledge to sell the IKEA product range.
Inter IKEA Systems B.V. was established in 1983 in the Netherlands. It is the owner of the IKEA Concept and the worldwide IKEA franchisor. Inter IKEA Systems B.V. is owned by Inter IKEA Holding B.V.
Jon Abrahamsson Ring is Managing Director of Inter IKEA Systems B.V. He is also a member of the Inter IKEA Group management team.
Inter IKEA Holding B.V. (located in the Netherlands), is the owner of IKEA range and supply (IKEA of Sweden AB and IKEA Supply AG), production (IKEA Industry AB) and franchising (Inter IKEA Systems B.V.) businesses . This structure simplifies and improves the IKEA franchise system, creating better conditions for increased customer focus and future expansion.
Around the globe, a large number of companies operate under the IKEA trademarks. All IKEA franchisees are independent of Inter IKEA Group. A large group of franchisees are owned and operated by INGKA Group. Inter IKEA Group and INGKA Group have the same founder, and a common history and heritage, but have operated under different owners and management since the 1980s.
To improve the IKEA franchise system and clarify roles, IKEA range, supply and production activities transferred to the new Inter IKEA Group headed by Inter IKEA Holding B.V. The ownership changes came into effect on 31 August 2016. The Inter IKEA Group is now composed of three core businesses – franchising, range and supply and industry. The entities will work together to build a stronger franchise system. To build an even better IKEA offer together with retailers and suppliers based on existing and new strengths in our value chain.
