PRESS RELEASE

NEWS UPDATE

BUSINESS BOOMING AT BURGESS 

In today’s volatile economic market, Burgess Furniture is not only holding its own, it’s positively booming. Year end figures show business is flourishing, with worldwide sales exceeding $40million – proving 2007 to be a record year.

BURGESS TAKE-OVER

The first quarter of 2008 has already started on a high with the acquisition of German distributors HS Bankett und Objektausstatung. A Burgess distributor for many years, it seemed the sensible business investment for a greater penetration in that market. The resultant new company, christened HS Bankett Burgess GmbH, will serve as the mainland European sales office for Burgess, with plans already in place for the expansion of sales and staff.

FEBRUARY…

Sees the launch of several new product ranges at Hotelympia. Among these are the new VIO range of chairs,

and what promises to bring lightweight, sleek yet refined tables into the conference room with the new Configure-8 range. Brilliant innovation by the Burgess design team has resulted in a style and ease of operation previously unknown in a folding table of this genre.

The Configure-8 conference table features include:

• The 180 x 75cm table weighs less than 24kg.

• Adjustable feet to allow it to be levelled on uneven floors.

• Linking that is concealed in the corners.

• Legs that allow optional laminate inserts to match the top.

• The frame with an anodised silver finish, and a 76cm height.

• A choice of two modesty panels – silver perforated aluminium or a high pressure laminate to match the table-top.

• A 90 degree angle edge so it butts up neatly to other tables.

New Website

Burgess are very proud to announce the launch of it’s brand new Website, using the latest technology and reflecting the Burgess new innovation and design direction, the new website looks stunning.

MARCH…

Will see further development in the US with an additional 15,000 sq ft of production space coming on line at the MTS Burgess plant in Michigan, USA. This expansion has become necessary due to the overwhelming demand for the Company’s quality aluminium stacking chairs in the Americas, and will include extra bending, welding, polishing and powder coating facilities.
