Another strategic investment to diversify and enter a growing sector which would supplement the current business domain. The group acquired a company which manufactures over 150 models of office furniture including a variety of office desking and chairs, storage and shelving, partitioning, as well as offering the services of carpeting, installation of blinds, ceiling and lighting etc thus making it a 'one-stop-shop' for office interior solutions.
This company already had a captive customer base as it manufactures to order for many well-known consumer brands. All designs are created in-house, and the initial focus would be to cater to the corporate sector and then expand to the domestic market upon consolidation.
Having identified the export potential for bentwood products fashioned out of plantation rubber wood, the company has started designing and creating a range of bentwood furniture for international market. Bentwood is created by using industrial presses to compress rubber veneers to the desired shape or profile.
The company has already undertaken and completed key projects having provided interior solutions to the entertainment sector, finance, manufacturing, insurance and telecommunications as well as to the prestigious HSBC Call Center where 2000 units of custom designed work stations were produced, supplied and installed.
Additional resources have been invested as well as plans been formulated to position the company to offer discerning customers an office space solution which can be customized to their specific requirements. The future plans also include cost effective completely locally manufactured office furniture and office interior solutions, which are ergonomically designed, combining elegance with comfort.
