ABF enjoys New York success

OFFICE furniture firm ABF is securing orders from New York and has plans to target South America, the Gulf and Asia.

The Wetherby-based company showcased its desks and chairs at an event in the city and launched its Archipod garden office product.

ABF managing director Darren Buttle said: “It’s going extremely well in New York. It’s such an important city for us when you consider the size and scale of the business community, and we’re delighted with the impact we made at the Agile Working event.

“Orders are already coming through, and we’re confident we can build on our success to date in the US and continue our upwards trajectory.

“Our international operation is gathering apace. Our immediate focus is undoubtedly America, which still offers so much untapped potential, but I’m keen to explore opportunities in Canada, Brazil and regions of South East Asia as well. These are all markets that are experiencing rapid growth of their own and are countries where we can really play a part in helping companies compete in the international arena through effective use of office space and cohesive work-life strategies.

ABF recently opened new premises in Drums, Pennsylvania, and also has operations in Dubai and Spain.

The New York event was organised with the support of UK Trade and Investment.
