Who is Keilhauer?

Founded in 1981, Keilhauer is a privately owned, design-focused contract furniture manufacturer. Working with world-renowned furniture designers, Keilhauer is internationally recognized for award-winning design, built with extreme craftsmanship, to the highest environmental standards. At Keilhauer, we believe that because we all share this planet, it is essential that we do our part protecting it. Our comprehensive sustainability program, Planet Keilhauer, driven by our goal of closed-loop manufacturing, is an approach to production in which there is no waste and materials are cycled back into the system, minimizing environmental impact.


As an integral member of a production cell, the Sewer uses expertise to transform pieces of textiles and leather into beautiful, strong covers for our upholstered furniture using an industrial sewing machine. The Sewer is efficient and pays accurate attention to product quality during all sewing activities and follows all safety protocols and workplace policies. Extensive on-the-job training is required to become proficient in all product models.

Meeting the demands of a busy production schedule and delivering high quality products in a timely manner furthers Keilhauer’s mission of making work comfortable for all.


  • Previous experience working in a fast-paced manufacturing facility an asset.
  • Completion of high school or training/education from a vocational/trade school is an asset.
  • General knowledge of industrial sewing machines and their use.
  • Rework skills and hand-eye coordination is a must.
