Office Image is now a market leader in Wales and the west of England. The company is challenging competitors in other parts of the UK and to accommodate their fast growth the company has invested in a new headquarters building in the north of Cardiff, which after a total refurbishment will provide the company with 15,000sqft. The current building will be completely refurbished and when completed will be one of the highest specification buildings of its type in south Wales. It will be the largest investment made by the company to date, and will include a large showroom, design studio, warehouse facilities, boardroom with full AV wall, and state-of-the-art technologies showcasing the future for 21st century commerce and industry. Office Image will have moved into their new headquarters in October 2008 with a 6 month turnaround for the refurbishment works ensuring completion for Spring of next year.
The salesforce of the company has increased by 20% in the last financial year and by the end of 2008, they will be increasing it again by a further 20%. In anticipation of the additional volume of business this will create, the in-house design team has also increased in size with the recruitment of two industry experienced designers and investment in the most recent 3d visual software. The company has also gained all the necessary industry and professional policies and accreditations to begin tendering for public sector contracts. In the current economic climate, this area is now a priority for Office Image and again they have invested in securing the services of specialist consultants to ensure they fulfilled all of the required criteria. The company are also working with their clients to identify other products or services that will be of benefit to them. The technologies sector is of particular interest and the professional advice of specialist consultants and suppliers is currently being looked into.
