Offices come in all shapes and sizes and many customers can feel a little daunted at the prospect of fitting out a larger premises and ensuring they get exactly what they want.Here at Chrisbeon we can handle any fitting or refurbishment for all sizes of offices. Big or small we work with them all, and after more than 40 years in the trade we like to think we know what we are talking about.
The development of Computer Aided Design (CAD) has helped considerably and is a marvellous asset in producing 3D all-around vision of plans so clients can see exactly how their new office is going to look when it is completed.
Helping to guide customers through the process is our furniture sales manager Jim Wilson. Jim has been with the firm 27 years – starting when he was just 16 – so there are few people out there in our industry who can match up to his level of expertise.
“I went to college and then arrived at Chrisbeon on a work placement that became permanent,” he said.
“I have done every job going, from working in the warehouse to full installations and helping existing customers who want more furniture. The biggest one I have ever done was supplying 300 desks to a local firm.
“The team here is very friendly and I think this comes across in our dealings with customers and helps to reassure them and put them at their ease, showing we have their best interests at heart.
“Every day is different. It is all about furniture but it is not the same job all the time and it’s the differences in dealing with the various challenges that are stimulating and then the satisfaction of seeing the end product and how pleased the customer is. You can’t beat that feeling.
“I also get to go out and about on installations and that suits me down to the ground. We are involved in all sorts of jobs. Home offices, small office refits and refurbishments, rejigging layouts and full office fit-outs.
“I get a lot of satisfaction when our plans are installed, it looks amazing and the customer is really happy – that’s where the job satisfaction comes in. When you have made someone’s dreary office look modern and amazing. That’s why I still love the job after 27 years.”
