Excell Communications, who moved to Technology House, Hadley Park, Telford, in August, selected the most competitive quote, from Chrisbeon Office Supplies, to furnish their prestigious new offices.
And in a reciprocal gesture, Stafford Park-based Chrisbeon has changed their mobile phones to handsets supplied by Excell Communications.
The two companies, who are both members of the Shropshire Chamber of Commerce, will be continuing their relationship in the months ahead when Excell intend expanding even further.
At present, Excell employ 120 people and expect to increase that number as new national and local companies come on board.seeking their mobile communications solutions.
The contract won by Chrisbeon, to supply 80 desks and chairs for Excell’s call centre, technical support, customer service and sales staff, is shortly expected to increase significantly.
Excell, which is owned and run by husband and wife Stuart and Alison Box, has ambitious expansion plans in the pipeline and intend to feature Chrisbeon for what Excell field sales manager Adam Granger describes as ‘excellent service’.
Said Adam: “Chrisbeon delivered our desks and chairs as well as boardroom and directors’ office furniture right on time to ensure that we did not lose a single day in our move to the new offices at Hadley Park.”
Chrisbeon Office Supplies Partner Richard Hughes said they had devised an ‘economical furniture solution’ for Excell.
“We purchased back all their old furniture from their former unit on Stafford Park which reduced the cost of their new furniture.
“The trading back against new furniture means both companies have been closely aware of environmental issues. We not only avoided their old furniture going to landfill, but were able to make a payment to Excell thus reducing their costs.
“Similar economical furniture solutions in difficult times can be ideal for new business start-ups who are working to a tight budget,” said Richard.
The reciprocal trading has continued with Chrisbeon choosing Excell for their new app mobile phones because they needed the ability to access their CCTV system.
“It means that when we are not on site we can just look at our mobile phones and check that the premises are safe and secure,” he added.
