With the last days of 2012 quickly approaching us, The Refinishing Touch took a moment to reflect on this year’s past achievements and some of the trends expected in 2013. We certainly had a busy and eventful year, but 2013 is expected to hold just as much growth, excitement and customer success stories, along with an improved sense of environmental awareness and budget preservation.
Back in May, The Refinishing Touch expanded its award-winning furniture asset management services into the neighboring country of Canada, with the opening of its first administrative office. Shortly after, we completed our first international project in Toronto, and have much more in store for 2013.
One month later, we celebrated our 35th year in the business, delivering high-quality cost-effective, safe and sustainable furniture refinishing and re-upholstery to the hospitality, government and higher education sectors. The milestone was a remarkable achievement, demonstrating the success of an idea created by president and founder Mario Insenga when working at his family’s Ohio musical instrument repair business as a young adult.
In 2013, The Refinishing Touch predicts a noticeable increase in the implementation of sustainable, fiscally-responsible solutions. Our upcoming projects for the New Year foresee key industry trends, including:
– Government: Local, state and national bodies will continue to invest in and implement sustainable solutions that offer significant ROI, reducing the current 40% to 80% expenditure on furniture assets
– Higher education: Collegiate campuses will become more conscious of their existing assets and work harder to find cost-effective solutions that allow operations to stay within budgets and maintain quality
– Hospitality: Hoteliers will focus more urgently on alternative solutions, including refinishing, re-upholstery and color changes, to deliver furniture upgrades and meet corporate brand requirements
