Ensuring quality and safety of our products is the core of our business and is directly linked to the success of our company. Our aim is to ensure that everywhere in the world the IKC name represents the promise that the product is safe and top quality. This is obtained by using the highest quality people, materials and machines. Our quality-control checks and the tests by certified safety officials are expressed by the standard 2-year warranty.
IKC believes in the simplistic look and feel of her products. We make sure children everywhere in the world, between two and ten years, will be able to play with IKC’s products without any guidance or explanation required. The products are based on traditional games, are made without loose parts and made of wood, as informer days. They are simple to understand and captivate the children’s imaginations. By creating an attractive simplistic look and feel by using certain shapes, material and colours, children all over the world, from many different cultures, are attracted to our products.
Because our company’s success is based on our people we fully support the United Nations Global Compact’s guiding principles on human rights and labour. We aim to set an example of good human rights and labour practices throughout all our business activities. Besides giving respect and dignity to our people we are dedicated to bringing play to children all over the world: IKC participates in community projects like fundraising, schools and product donations to support the children who need it the most.
IKC products are made of wood and wood is what we believe in. Wood gives our products a high quality and warm look and it makes our products very durable. Choosing wood as our ‘core play material’ gives a much lower carbon footprint to our products.
IKC possess the whole production line, from the design to the delivery of the product to the customer. We are therefore a flexible organization that can provide a local and custom service worldwide. Customisation of our products for customers with specific, individual requirements is another key to our success; and with our owndesign team consisting of Dutch and Chinese designers we are fully equipped to meet your wishes.
IKC is constantly trying to downsize her footprint as much as possible, we do this by focusing on our products and our processes: what happens when we buy materials, when we design our products, when we make them, whenwe sell them and what happens when you use them. That’s why we design our products to use less material, ship with smaller packaging, be free of toxic substances and be as energy efficient and recyclable as possible.
