Premier Workplace Services has expanded its sustainable office furniture operations with the acquisition of Office Resale Ltd, one of the UK’s top retailers of quality used office furniture and equipment.
The acquisition sees Premier take control of the retail channel, giving the company direct access to a wider marketplace for office furniture remanufactured and repaired at the award-winning Renew Centre.
Office Resale Ltd started trading in 2007 and specialises in business to business sales of quality used and remanufactured office furniture from established brands. A state-of-the-art website that showcases the quality of their reused furniture and the provision of at least a 12 month warranty combined with businesses increasing focus on cost savings and environmental performance has seen Office Resale grow considerably in recent years.
The two companies have worked closely together for a number of years, with the Renew Centre carrying out refurbishment, remodelling and remanufacturing of the office furniture required to support the growing retailer. The acquisition is expected to help both businesses achieve ambitious growth aspirations.
Jerry Marks, Managing Director, Premier Workplace Services comments: “We are delighted to take ownership of Office Resale, a business closely aligned to our own. With our investment in sustainable office furniture services we recognise the importance of managing the sales channels for these products. Office Resale has developed a very strong brand in this market place and a reputation for quality. We welcome the team on board and look forward to helping divert even more office furniture back into reuse”.
