White Paper: Choosing Between Brand New, Cloned, Newly Remanufactured, Refurbished/Used, or New Office Cubicles.

Posted by: Mitchell H. Kirsch 4 comments

When the first “Action Office” began sprouting in offices at the end of the Sixties, it arrived just in the nick of time: an upswing in the number of white collar workers and a corresponding rise in the price of office real estate made the office cubicle an ideal solution for office planners. Using the newfangled cubicles, they could accommodate their growing workforces easily using less floor space. The days of private offices for everyone were numbered; the cubicles were here to stay.

Today, office cubicles make up about $2.27 billion of office furniture sales in 2010, or about 27.4% of that year’s $8.3 billion total in office furniture sales, as per historical data compiled by the Business and Institutional Furniture Manufacturer’s Association. Office planners are spoiled for choice: they can choose to buy brand-new cubicles from established brand names in the field, or they might take a chance on cloned cubicles manufactured in China. Alternatively, they might explore buying remanufactured systems furniture, or even go for used cubicles if that’s all their budget can afford.

Do you know what office cubicles are right for you? In the following paper, we’ll explore the different types of office cubicles, and what each type of office cubicle can deliver, in terms of features, advantages, and other perks.

The white paper has an excellent explanation of the difference between cloned and OEM cubicles. I touched on the topic in this blog post: http://www.sandiegocubicles.com/blog/office-cubicles-design-attack-of-the-clones/. But your explanation is much more in-depth.

Great paper all around. I’ll definitely be tweeting for my followers to come read it.

You are correct. Choose the type and color of the office cubicle is not easy. I never found anything like it. I had to ask the help of who know this work very well so as to create something very special. The office cubicle is very important to create a comfortable office space and aesthetic. Thank you for the information about choosing the right office cubicle.

We’ve written a similar article on our blog that discusses the benefits of new vs used vs remanufactured cubicles and added a link to your whitepaper at the bottom. http://www.rosiinc.com/cubicles/new-vs-remanufactured-vs-used-cubicles/
