Herman Miller Ergonomic Seating Ranks 1st

For the second year in a row, Herman Miller ergonomic work seating ranked first in the annual Brand Report survey conducted for Contract Magazine.

The survey consists of a random sample of subscribers and asks that they identify the top 3 manufacturers in 32 product categories. All responses were unaided, and no brand name, prompts or lists were provided to elicit unbiased responses.

Further proof that people who sit at work appreciate a great chair - and that's one of the things that we do best.

bfi Furnishes City of Newark, Police Department and OEM New Headquarters

This is a state of the art Law & Public Safety building in the heart of Newark's mostly residential south ward. It houses the police department's south precinct which aims to become more connected to the community via outreach programs and by providing facilities for the residents to use for their programs and organizations. The building is also the new headquarters for the police department and the Office of Emergency Management (OEM) with its command and control center. It is the new high-tech central hub for managing the affairs of the city. bfi provided furniture for work stations, conference rooms, private offices, command and control stations, break rooms, paper flow/copy/fax rooms, and lounge areas. The new furniture more than adequately supports all of these functions. The majority of this project was done under the New Jeresey State Contract, allowing the benefit of a bundled price inclusive of all technical work, as well as delivery and installation services.
