Gresham turns 40!
Gresham Office Furniture is celebrating its 40th birthday this month following an exciting year of refurbishments, product launches and expansion into new markets.
With a leading showroom at 65 Clerkenwell Road, the family run business established in 1976 is set to achieve a record turnover thanks to the successful delivery of projects with the likes of Bentley, the University of Birmingham and West Yorkshire Police.
Having refurbished the London space ahead of Clerkenwell Design Week, Gresham has marked its 40th year with the introduction of a fresh, modern logo and expanded its core range by launching the Gresham Design Collection – an innovative selection of design-led task chairs and soft seating aimed at the corporate and leisure markets.
Oscar, Gresham’s new task chair, boasts a sleek design that cleverly hides state-of-the-art flexibility, while Steps is a striking lounge chair with sweeping curves, and soft cushioned shell for luxurious comfort and unrivalled elegance.
Investment in Gresham’s production facility has continued to be a priority with the company recently spending £1.4m on the existing factory to ensure the entire product range can be manufactured in the UK. New machinery has been installed to improve quality and speed of manufacturing as well as to reduce downtime and maximise yields from materials.
Julian Roebuck, Managing Director at Gresham Office Furniture, said: “My father-in-law established the business 40 years ago from his garden shed in Bolton and we are incredibly proud of the growth we have achieved since then. While the contracts side of the business continues to go from strength to strength we were determined to mark our birthday by bringing the brand up-to-date with a new logo and a new range that better reflects our design ambitions. Both have been received really positively and we are excited to see what the next chapter holds for the business.
“We would like to take this opportunity to thank all our colleagues, industry partners and clients for their support over the past 40 years, it’s been a pleasure to work with you and we look forward to continuing relationships going forward.”
With more product launches and a new Northern showroom planned in the coming months, Gresham is no-longer the ‘grey jumper’ brand of office furniture, it’s the one to watch!
