Office Furniture 911, Inc. is a company that provides businesses with high-quality new, refurbished and used office furniture at greatly reduced prices throughout the Tampa Bay region. I sat down with Jason, the Owner of Office Furniture 911 to ask him a few questions in order to gain insight on his company.
- Tell us about your company and the origin of its name.
The name of my company is Office Furniture 911, and we are a turnkey office furniture provider. Meaning, we can handle anything that has to do with your office furniture. We offer new, used, and refurbished office furniture as well as offer asset management and the liquidation of current furnishings. We begin by understanding the way your employees work and help you design a space that fits the function, style and your budget. After we’ve installed your furniture our office relocation division can move your employees to their new home. Most importantly, we handle all aspects “in-house” by Office Furniture 911 employees so we can control the quality of work.
The name Office Furniture 911 came about as it relates to customer service. We understand the urgency and importance of office furniture; therefore, as a fast-growing company, we take customer service seriously and aim to create a seamless experience for all of our clients. We don’t mind handling a one-office job or a 3,000-employee job – we provide the same service across the board whether it is a small or large project.
- Why did you choose to be in this industry?
I chose to be in this industry because I have always had a passion for sales. Even though this was probably not a career I might not have chosen straight out of college, office furniture is a commodity that every one needs. Because of this, I realized this was a perfect niche for me to undertake.
Being a very design-oriented process, this career gives me the opportunity to use my creativity to bring a space to life. I get to create a dynamic environment for people to work, which influences how they work. This interconnectedness helps maintain a positive employee moral, which in turn, assists in increasing the bottom line.
- What is your experience and background in this industry?
I have held a career within this industry for ten years. I have owned Office Furniture 911 for four years, which has evolved into the company it is today. Based on my success so far, I hope to be in the industry for another forty years.
- You mentioned that Office Furniture 911 has been in business for four years and that it has evolved. How has your company transformed over the last few years?
Office Furniture 911 initially began as a brokerage and a liquidation company for used furniture only. It quickly transformed into a used furniture retail company and now has morphed into an all-encompassing company – we do it all. We haven’t given up on what got us here though. We are focused on design-oriented projects and new furniture while maintaining options ranging from high-end to low-cost.
- Why stay in Tampa with your business?
For me, both personally and business-wise, I think there is great opportunity here in Tampa with such a rapidly growing market. Tampa has great leaders with extraordinary vision and I can’t wait to see us in ten years. Also, the weather is a huge plus! The sun is always shining, and who can complain about that.
- Does Office Furniture 911 have any exciting developments in the future?
Within the next 60 days we will launching a new location ten minutes outside of Downtown at 8802 E Adamo Drive. As a result of our development, we have outgrown our sales staff and our company, therefore needed a new facility in order to support this progress. We look forward to partnering with Elevate, Inc. in order to assist us in spreading the word about Office Furniture 911 and our exciting new developments.
