Thursday, 06 November, 2020

South Wales based office furniture designer and manufacturer, Bisley, has launched a new flexible furniture collection, conceived and created during the coronavirus pandemic and influenced by the evolving requirements of the 2020 workplace.

Bisley produces over 15,000 items per week at their Newport factory, exporting to over 50 countries, with clients including Direct Line, BBC and PwC.

In early 2020 at the start of the pandemic, as office workers everywhere were told to work from home, Bisley’s newly appointed CEO Richard Costin asked four of Bisley’s in-house designers to propose ideas for products that would work well in a flexible home office scenario. The result is the newly launched Belong collection, an office furniture portfolio designed with home working firmly in mind, from its fully customisable nature, to the simplicity of assembly.

Bisley and Boss are delighted to announce their new agreement; Bisley has the distribution rights for all Boss products in France.

Together, Bisley and Boss will be able to showcase British manufacturing excellence and provide a full and versatile range of office solutions and experiences for the French market. John Atkin, CEO of Bisley, commented:

‘We couldn’t be more pleased to have another Great British manufacturing partner in Boss . The parallels and overlap between Boss and Bisley are many – we both have the ability to produce high quality products, in volume within standard lead times, meaning we’re able to easily complete large bespoke projects.

That’s why our collaboration will work spectacularly well – with our storage and Boss’ seating, we can provide solutions collectively that other people might struggle to create and deliver, because we work in exactly the same way. Boss has a history of fabulous design over many years, which we think is ideally suited to the French market. We’re excited about the potential of where our partnership can lead.’
