Huntingburg, IN, January 16, 2024 – OFS, a leading manufacturer in workplace, healthcare, and hospitality furniture, is excited to officially announce its recent acquisition of ROOM, a renowned name in adaptive architecture specializing in modular workspace products. This partnership marks a significant milestone for OFS, as it unites ROOM with Carolina, Bryan Ashley, and Styline Logistics - further enhancing our range of outstanding products, solutions, and services across any environment or space.
Bringing Innovation Under One Roof
ROOM has carved a niche in the market with its state-of-the-art adaptive architecture products, designed to offer more privacy and flexibility. By joining forces with OFS, ROOM's expertise in creating adaptable, space-efficient solutions will be complemented by OFS’s wide range of high-quality furniture offerings.
"This partnership is more than just bringing two companies together; it’s about redefining the future of workplace design," said Ryan Menke, Chief Revenue Officer of OFS. "With ROOM’s innovative approach to adaptive architecture, we are now better positioned to meet the ever-changing needs of modern workspaces. OFS and ROOM complement each other, sharing a mutual goal of enhancing the environments where we live and work.”
Make ROOM for a Better Way to Work
Founded in 2018, ROOM is at the forefront of adaptive architecture, offering a range of modular office pods that cater to the needs of modern workspaces. Known for its sustainable and user-friendly designs, ROOM has been a game-changer in the way workspaces are conceived and utilized.
The way we work has changed and flexibility is paramount. Not only is modular construction flexible to change, it’s more affordable and faster to deploy, making it a far better investment than traditional construction. And, it’s more sustainable for the planet. Our suite of modular products are engineered with recycled materials and replace multiple cycles of construction, minimizing noise and our environmental footprint. So, we’re not just designing workspace products, we’re designing a better way of working.” - Morten Meisner-Jensen, Co-Founder of ROOM
What This Means for OFS and ROOM Customers
Customers of both OFS and ROOM can look forward to a broader portfolio of products that embody design excellence and functional versatility. The combined expertise of both companies will accelerate the development of new solutions that cater to privacy, collaboration, and wellness in the workplace.
"We are thrilled to welcome ROOM into the OFS family. This partnership is a testament to our commitment to innovation and excellence in office design. ROOM's cutting-edge adaptive architecture complements our mission to create workspaces that are not only aesthetically pleasing but also functionally dynamic. Together, we will continue to push the boundaries of what a workspace can be, ensuring our customers have the best environment to thrive in today's fast-paced world.” - Wesley Edmonds, Director of Adaptive Architecture at OFS.
