A Shropshire company celebrating its 40th anniversary is today asking clients ‘what’s the link between uclic and uni?’

And the answer they are looking for: uclic and uni are both for study.

Chrisbeon of Telford and Shrewsbury is predicting that students planning to study at uni will be interested in uclic, a brand new contemporary range of small, home office desks.

Chrisbeon has been given exclusive rights to the uclic range in the Midlands where they have showrooms in Telford and Shrewsbury.

Said partner Richard Hughes:  “When we were offered some exclusivity by the Dewsbury manufacturer, we immediately identified a market in our immediate catchment area.

“With a new university coming to Shropshire, as well as us having two existing ones, Harper Adams and the University of Wolverhampton, we see this range of desks with built-in storage units ideal for fitting into small accommodation spaces.

“We know from our own experience that student accommodation often has a small ‘foot print’ and that a corner desk can make best use of space in a room.

“The stylish range, with more than 900 configurations, has colours which are ‘on trend,’ aimed at the strong influences in the mobile/technology market of Apple iphone c colours and the automotive industry.

“We think the range is fun, exciting and ‘on trend’ to appeal to the powerful teenage market with its strong social media activity.”

And it is not only students who need functional furniture.  Over four million people are home workers, giving a home worker rate of nearly 14% of all those in work – the highest rate since comparable records began in 1998.

Added Richard:  “What also appeals about uclic is the manufacturer’s 10 year guarantee – it’s a quality product that is self-assembling and there are good instructions.  Or, customers can opt for Chrisbeon to deliver and assemble the units if they prefer.

“Our website www.chrisbeon.co.uk provides a video for assembly via the Youtube link and uclic orders placed now will be delivered before Christmas.”
