Are you moving from one office space to another? Are you starting up a new business? Is your existing office furniture not serving you well? You can benefit both the environment and your bottom line by investigating used and/or remanufactured desk sets, chairs, tables, and other furnishings.
“Used furniture” may conjure up images of old, scarred wooden desks and threadbare armchairs. In reality, most used office furniture is oftentimes indistinguishable from new. Large companies move, reorganize, and merge, leaving behind desks, shelves, and other items that have no place in the design of the new or remodeled offices and those pieces find their way to us. So don’t let negative images get in the way of great deals.
I’m often asked, “What exactly is remanufactured office furniture?”
Remanufactured office furniture is furniture that has been renovated to look and function like new furniture. It is an environmentally friendly option that provides the same aesthetic options as new but at a significantly reduced price.
Benefits of Remanufactured Office Furniture:
- Environmental Benefit: Every time 40 cubicles are remanufactured, one less truckload goes to the landfill. Remanufactured also saves our raw materials and minimizes energy usage. For instance, every ton of recycled steel saves 2,500 pounds of iron ore, 1,000 pounds of coal, and 40 pounds of limestone. It also saves 4,300 kilowatt-hours of energy. Indoor air quality is another environmental benefit from remanufactured office furniture because occupants have significantly less exposure to the volatile organic compounds (VOC’s) that result from the new manufacturing process.
- Cost Benefit: When you don’t have to pay for the raw materials, labor, or energy that are needed to make new furniture, the savings are tremendous.
- Aesthetic Benefit: Remanufacturing uses the underlying structure of the furniture, yet allows for the visual elements of the cubicle to be designed to any specification. Customers choose colors, patterns or styles to fit their workspaces with an endless array of options.
Eco-friendly, aesthetically pleasing and economically advantageous—purchasing remanufactured office furniture is a win-win-win situation!
