Grand Rapids Christian Welcomes Students to Renovated Facility

October 8th, 2015 by

News_imagesGrand Rapids Christian Middle School purchased an existing vacant school building to accommodate an anticipated 430 students in grades five through eight.  They purchased the building with a vision to update the existing footprint into a flexible learning environment that would be more conducive to today’s instructional practices.  It was essential for the renovated building to include several common areas that would be used for a variety of instructional and social purposes.  With a focus on the future, spaces were created that the school could grow into as enrollment continues to increase.  Kentwood Office Furniture worked with the school system to outfit the new space with furnishings that would complement the vision.  Kentwood Office was chosen as the exclusive furniture vendor for this project based on a previous strong performance in the high school furniture installation.  Staff and students alike are pleased with the space and are excited to continue their educational journey in the newly renovated building.

Remanufactured Herman Miller Furnishes Expansion at a Fraction of the Cost

November 5th, 2013 by

Nonprofit Solutions InstallationA 30 year old nonprofit solutions national company was looking to expand in the Indianapolis market after a recent business acquisition. They had a national furniture contract with Herman Miller at the time of the acquisition. Kentwood Office Furniture had only sold them few HON Basyx chairs, but was building a strong relationship with the buyer by getting the chairs delivered quickly and complete. The client made a visit to Kentwood’s showroom and was amazed that Kentwood could offer remanufactured Herman Miller workstations that looked and functioned like new at a fraction of the cost. After further research and discussion, the client moved forward with Kentwood Office. The winning combination of top quality product, great service and a great price made sense for their expansion and the future of their company.

“Hands On” Approach Moves Customer In On Schedule

February 26th, 2013 by Jeff Klein

Security Integrator Customer Install

“Kentwood Office Furniture provided outstanding service from concept phase to final implementation.”

Dave Nemmers
President / Owner

Company growth and increasing customer demands brought a need for a new location for a security integration company. Their current location was not meeting their needs and was no longer the “right fit” for their organization. With tight timelines for the move ahead of them, they needed furnishings fast and done right the first time. Kentwood Office was there from the beginning design to the final installation. From furniture layout, to colors, to style and functionality, Kentwood was there with a “hands on” approach that helped the customer move in on schedule with outstanding results!

By Francesca Smith, Solutions Account Associate

Basic office needs often start with desks and chairs, but there are other ways to improve your office space right away without having to go through a total renovation. Desks, chairs, and workstations require much more thought and investment and deserve their own blog post for a later time.

Hon Introduces New Ceres Seating Line

January 6th, 2011 by Jeff Klein

Ceres ™

Total support is a beautiful thing.
Catches your eye. And has your back.

Ceres seating began with scientific research on how people sit. The end result is a superior sitting experience-and a stylish, beautiful chair. The aesthetic integrity of form that follows function gives Ceres its clean, purposeful appearance. Its contours and shape exist to support you completely as you move throughout your workday. As a bonus, Ceres also has the aesthetic flexibility to reflect just the right personality for practically any workplace environment.

Complete Support

In the studio of Ceres designer Wolfgang Deisig, every new concept begins with a question: What can be improved? With Ceres, Deisig set out to improve the back support delivered by work chairs. He conducted motion studies of how people sit and revealed a gap in support as they recline. The kinesthetic design of Ceres addresses this problem, keeping the backrest in constant contact with your lumbar as you sit upright, recline, or move between postures

HON Thinks Green

April 1st, 2008 by Jeff Klein

Leading Office Furniture Manufacturer Has
Long History of Environmental Responsibility

Muscatine, IA – April 15, 2008 – Sustainability and environmental responsibility are increasingly important issues in today’s society. At The HON Company, the second-largest office furniture manufacturer in North America, conserving raw materials is not a new concept. In fact, it’s something the company has been doing since its inception.

“More than fifty years ago, HON made recipe card boxes from pieces of scrap metal generated from our contract business,” says Mindy Billingsley, environmental marketing manager. “Today, we practice one of the industry’s strongest and most comprehensive programs to conserve raw materials and reduce waste.”

Beyond HON’s dedication to sustainability in product design, the company also has a number of programs in place to save the Earth’s resources. Having adopted the old adage, “waste not, want not,” back in 1947, it remains part of HON’s DNA and has shaped the company’s ongoing pursuit of environmental stewardship.
