Bush Wins New York State Contract

In a kind of homecoming, Bush Industries has received its first-ever New York State contract to sell and install commercial office furniture.

The contract gives Bush the green light to sell professional-grade products to any state agency. The company may now supply schools and universities as well as local municipalities and statewide agencies.

The five-year statewide contract includes all of Bush Industries’ commercial-grade collections manufactured and tested in Jamestown, the company noted, adding that products comprising each collection meet or exceed ANSI/BIFMA industry standards for performance and durability in a full-time office setting. Products on contract range from executive and open plan office furniture to height-adjustable standing desks, conference tables, file cabinets, bookcases, hutches, training tables and privacy screens.

The New York contract includes Bush Install 360 services, which include free space planning, flexible delivery and complete assembly with package removal. Professionally designed space plans contain 2D and 3D layouts covering each individual workspace, the company pointed out, which Bush can turn around within 48 hours with free and unlimited revisions.

Bush Industries has held a General Services Administration federal government contract since 2009. However, the Jamestown, NY-based furniture producer was unable to sell commercial furnishings to agencies in its home state until the New York Office of General Services approved the contract on May 23.

“We’ve been passionate about receiving a New York state contract, and we think it’s a win/win for Bush Industries and agencies statewide,” said Michael Evans, president and CEO, Bush Industries. “We have solutions for all types of workspaces in numerous styles, formats, and finishes, and we rigorously test each product to meet the highest industry standards for commercial quality. We also pride ourselves on making the customer experience easy, fast and affordable with delivery and installation services that are next to none.”
