Today we released our 2013 momentum report. As we embark on a new year, The Refinishing Touch values the chance to look back on our growth, successes and industry trends in our three target markets – higher education, hospitality and government.
From 2011 through to 2013, The Refinishing Touch has seen significant increases in refinishing projects as well as a higher demand for our color-changing services – an increase showcasing the want for more modern aesthetics.
One of our proudest accomplishments is the estimated 9,200 trees saved by our sustainable furniture asset management services. By eradicating the need to buy new and dispose of old assets, completed refinishing, re-manufacturing and reupholstery projects save trees and eliminate landfill waste. This work, coupled with our low-VOC lacquers and eco-friendly materials, has achieved an outstanding carbon footprint reduction of 99%.
As technology continued to advance in 2011 hoteliers recognized the need for armoire conversion services. The televisions desired by guests no longer fit into standard in-room furnishings. In the years since, The Refinishing Touch has completed numerous armoire modifications in hotels across North America, allowing for a 67% decrease in requests for the service. Hotels are now up-to-date and fit to adapt to any and all new technologies.
Here at The Refinishing Touch we are grateful for both the year behind us and the year ahead of us. Thank you to each of you for sharing in our successes.
