Turn-Key Transformation Provides 40% Savings for HH Barnum
HH Barnum Company
Brighton, MI Industry: Factory Automation Controls Distributor
HH Barnum was looking to give it’s office a facelift. This overhaul needed to include options for re-doing their Steelcase® “Series 9000R” workstations as well as the carpet throughout their facility. For the furniture, the team considered purchasing all new furniture or remanufactured products. Kentwood partnered with RD Weis, a floor covering company, to provide the customer with a turnkey solution.
The solution was an option that the customer had not considered – refacing their Series 9000 panels and installing new carpet WITHOUT a complete dismantle of their existing workstations.
The existing workstations were raised off of the floor, old carpet was pulled up and new carpet was installed. For the workstations, all of the panel skins were taken off, reupholstered with new fabric, and reinstalled. The space looks completely redone, and the company realized a 40% savings over the purchase of a new furniture solution.
