A bumper year for Classic Working Life
2014 year has been an exciting year for Classic Working Life, with our first major installation completed, new licence partnerships established with a number of exciting European brands and the long-anticipated launch of the CWL website.
July was a milestone month for us as we completed our first really big installation. The job entailed assembling and installing more than 3 600 chairs and around 100 board, meeting room and training tables for the Department of Environmental Affairs in Pretoria. I’m pleased to say we exceeded the expectations of our client, both in terms of quality and service delivery.
We also entered into agreements with several new suppliers in 2014, which have allowed us to broaden our product offering to include a wider spectrum of informal, canteen and multi-purpose seating and various desking solutions from Nurus, Enea and Infiniti. We have also partnered with Occhio, a lighting company based in Germany, and are working on some innovative concepts that bring furniture and lighting together in a functional, beautiful design. Watch this space.
Of course, our relationship with Wilkhahn remains as strong as ever, and we will be announcing some new locally assembled products from our anchor licence partner in the new year. We’ll also be stocking our showroom at Fritz Hahne House in Houghton with some beautiful new samples from all our suppliers in the second quarter of 2015. (Orders on all the products are, of course, welcome immediately – there’s no need to wait!)
The new Classic Working Life website went live at the end of 2014. A huge thanks to our friends at Flow Communications who not only did a great job of the site, but who also gently held our hands and patiently dealt with our complex and ever-changing requests. Please spend some time exploring our site and let us know what you think of it.
As we enter 2015 we would like to wish you and yours everything of the best for the new year.
Gregory and the CWL team
