Stockport based family run firm Offizone are celebrating 50 years in the office / business to business supplies industry.
Marketing Stockport spoke to Geoff Pike, Director of Offizone, about the way the 3rd generation business has evolved since it was first established in 1961.
Offizone has over 50 years of experience in the office supplies industry. Can you tell us about your journey?
Having built and grown Offizone on the simple values of great service and quality products, we have continued to identify and diversify into offering our clients more current and relevant services and products for their businesses.
What do your four different zones stand for?
The four zones are:
• Interiors ( fit-out and refurbishment)
• Furniture (desking systems, task seating, storage, meeting, breakout and reception)
• Supplies (stationery, print, personalised and promotional products, facilities management services and products)
• Workwear (Clothing, PPe, bags and accessories for own branding in either embroidery or print)
Just how important is the right type of furniture for a progressive workplace?
It’s about space efficiency, time efficiency and cable management when space is at a premium. You can really get the most out of your team by offering comfort, design and ergonomics – it’s about enticing and retaining the best people.
A great office environment impresses clients and helps to gain more business. If you are proud of your workplace you will look after it and invite more people to see it.
What furniture services do you offer?
We offer a full turnkey service. The process usually starts with a consultation and a site survey. We then put together a proposal which is usually preceded by a showroom visit. We offer space plans, 3D visuals, mood boards and presentations.
When we have received an order, we discuss delivery and installation dates and any other services required. e.g. power, data and communications management, removal and recycling of existing office furniture, other desk top products – monitor arms, power modules and letter trays. Presentation products and signage are generally included in most projects too.
We can also offer the client a full range of refurbishment products and services including, flooring, partitioning, ceilings, lighting, heating and cooling and blinds to name just a few.
What are Offizone’s core values?
Our core values are Honesty, Integrity, Service and Commitment.
We care about delivering a stunning project every time because there is nothing more satisfying to us than our current clients recommending us to our next clients. This is the way our business has organically grown over the years.
Offizone offer a variety of different services which include office fit-out and refurbishment, furniture and personalised promotional products.
