As a sustainable furniture asset management company offering on-site refinishing, reupholstering and remanufacturing services, we are passionate about providing customers in each of our target sectors with cost-effective means to revamp facilities. As a certified contractor with the General Services Administration, we’ve completed projects within federal agencies that include the U.S. Department of Justice, U.S. Congress and the Executive Office of the President. Through a deep analysis of government spending on facilities management, we’ve identified some key areas that if improved, would reduce waste and cut costs for the US government, including:
- Ongoing maintenance of government owned facilities
- Reducing the furniture spend for government agencies
- Refurbishing rather than replacing existing furniture assets
- Embracing furniture asset management as a means to extend the life cycle of existing furniture assets
When it comes to implementing cost-effective furniture solutions in the government sector, there’s always room for improvement. Not only does furniture asset management have a positive effect on taxpayers’ pockets, it also helps reduce government budgets and lessen the effect on the environment. Our research has found that the estimated annual cost to replace furniture in government facilities currently stands at $714 million, whilst the estimated cost to refinish those items comes in at $214 million, a total saving of $500 million. Refinishing, reupholstering and remanufacturing offers a cost-effective, eco-friendly alternative to replacing furniture.
