The focus of Qin International is on terrace construction and system furniture.  

Qin International was founded by Andy Andresen. Andresen co-founded the Environmental Centre in Bielefeld at the end of the 1970s. In his print shop he printed the first posters for the election campaign of the environmentalist Green Party in North Rhine Westphalia, Germany, in 1979. In the 90s Andresen designed the purple/pink "Batman" design of the MINOL petrol stations.

Andresen has fulfilled a long-cherished dream with Qin: To combine ecological action with a meaningful and above all durable product. The proven CO2-neutral products are distributed by Qin International in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.

The company advises interested customers from all areas in the design, planning and application of bamboo products. As an authorized sales partner of Moso International B.V., the world's leading manufacturer of high-quality and innovative bamboo products, Qin International also supplies the necessary materials.
