BBF turns the Laws of Business upside down at Neocon

BBF, the commercial furniture division of Bush Industries, Inc., a leading manufacturer of quality, affordable furnishing solutions for work and home, has turned business as usual upside down this year at Neocon. Led by a bold initiative focused on “Changing the Laws of Business”, BBF literally turned the commercial furniture industry on its head with an inverted office exhibit that defined their ability to defy gravity.

This year’s “Changing the Laws of Business” theme highlights that by adjusting your perspective on how you currently do business may bring to light numerous new customer and niche market opportunities. BBF provides immediate solutions to dealers across the country with their proprietary Install 360 Delivery and Installation services model that makes small to medium transactional sales profitable. “We can leverage our unique strengths” stated Executive Vice President of Marketing,

Mark Weppner, “By encouraging dealers to make more GP outside of their typical service area. We know how to increase revenues for both us and our expanding network of dealers.” BBF’s fast, easy and affordable reputation is built upon nationwide “flat-fee” services, plus delivery and installation in 7-10 days, supported by in stock product availability. BBF encourages their dealer reps to “Do the Math” on today’s transactional opportunities, such as Work at Home Programs that truly add up! (“Grass is Greener”“Do the Math”)

BBF’s “Protest” campaign inspires dealer reps to take a closer look at the hidden costs that consume dealer’s precious time and resources, like shipping, space planning and project management for remote installations that drive up their cost of goods. The bottom line is that all of these charges add up and cut directly into each dealer’s profitability. “We can effectively and profitably service the transactional market,” said CEO Jim Garde, “We are committed to serving this channel with our professional commercial furniture and value proposition.” Partnering with BBF provides free support services that not only protect the dealer margins, but also expands their business opportunities with a choice of direct shipping to them or BBF’s Install 360 services that provide end-to-end project management, delivery and installation.

BBF Previews FALL 2014 New Products at Neocon
BBF previews the FALL 2014 New Product releases for their commercial furniture offering, leading with introducing their Adjustable Height Desk option for many of the BBF Collections. Adding these new pieces increase the configurability of the entire line with a fresh new look and functionality which makes it more versatile. The new Momentum Bridge and Return is designed to create classic L-Desk and U-Station
configurations that connect multiple components currently available in the Momentum Collection. In addition, BBF is introducing new Realize Collection components that are available in all finishes, including a Realize ¾ Pedestal, Realize 36” Hutch and Realize 36” Wardrobe Storage Locker. BBF announces two new programs that incorporate both a Bookcase Program and a Privacy Screen Program that offer universal
Collection finishes in the most popular sizes that integrate bookcases and privacy screens across most collections. In addition, three universal accessory lines will be added to support the demand for universal 2” Grommet Kits, Hutch Lock Kits and Wire Trays that provide solutions that work with all BBF commercial grade furniture collections.

About BBF and Bush Industries, Inc.
BBF provides a broad scope of commercial grade furniture products and services, which are aligned to the transactional requirements of all businesses, as well as specific market niches such as the Work at Home/Remote professional. While BBF furniture is commercial quality, it is specifically designed to meet the shipping and installation needs of the transactional market by satisfying standard ground shipping criteria, quick assembly and flat-fee installation support services. The company specializes in simplified ordering and fulfillment for smaller installations and immediate needs, appealing to furniture dealers who don’t have the resources and infrastructure to support this business opportunity. 

Bush Industries is a leading manufacturer of case goods and ready-to-assemble furniture designed for office and work at home applications. The company operates two North American divisions – BBF and Bush Furniture – along with its Rohr division in Germany and its China operations. With an over 50-year legacy built on quality,
safety, reliability and durability, Bush Industries is the trusted leader in designing furnishing solutions that meet work and home needs. The company is headquartered in Jamestown, NY, with manufacturing and distribution facilities located in western New York, Pennsylvania, China and Germany.
