EXPERIENCE THE NOVVO ETOPA DIFFERENCE


We strive for quality in everything we do over our broad range of products and services. We’re also experts in manufacturing of any kind of millwork/metalwork for retail stores or salon/spa environments, using only the best renewable, recyclable and environmentally sustainable materials. Our experienced team utilizes a collaborative and streamlined approach to the design process, ensuring that you get what you need, all in an efficient, professional manner.





NORTH AMERICAN PRODUCTION


At every opportunity, we choose to manufacture in North America. In addition to supporting jobs and the local economy, keeping the majority of our production in North America is one of the most effective ways to minimize our carbon emissions. Plus, working with Novvo Etopa also means that you have successfully reduced your own carbon footprint!





QUALITY & DURABILITY


It is not only the quality of our designs and manufacturing that makes a difference; it truly starts with the materials that we choose to work and build with. The thick 16-gauge metal that we use in the production of our furniture and fixtures is some of the strongest yet lightweight on the market, making for highly durable pieces that will last for years and yet are still maneuverable.





APPROVED AVEDA VENDOR


We are the ONLY approved vendor of Aveda furniture and fixtures. Why? Our philosophy and business practices firmly align with the Aveda mission. If you are an Aveda salon or spa, you can be sure that you are getting exactly what you need to grow or update your business by an Aveda-trusted source.





UL CERTIFIED


We are the only UL certified vendor of Aveda retail fixtures. UL certification is exclusively granted to those who pass rigorous safety, engineering and environmental testing. As a business owner, this means that you can be sure that you are making the best possible choice for your business and for anyone who works at and visits your salon or spa. Look for the UL logo on our certified products. For more information on UL, visit: www.ul.com





ENVIRONMENTALLY CONSCIOUS MATERIALS & MANUFACTURING PROCESSES


We use:


  • Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified woods, veneers and substrates including MDF or Medium Density Fiberboard **The Forest Stewardship Council monitors that all woods are sustainably grown and harvested
  • Plyboo, a derivative of bamboo and one of the most sustainable and renewable wood products available
  • Formaldehyde-free adhesives and resins
  • Water-based wood lacquers, which eliminates the evaporation of harmful traditional solvents and chemicals into the air
  • Powder-coated metal and steel finishes, which eliminates common concerns with traditional wet paint. The powder-coating method produces a more durable finish and also eliminates VOC’s and does not require any solvents
  • Recyclable metals and cold-pressed steel, which is not only more durable, it is lighter in weight than its’ hot pressed counter-part, reducing the energy needed to transport
  • Recycled materials, including locally-sourced barn wood, in as many of our designs and finished products as possible
