Office furniture dealer to expand in Virginia
- August 6, 2009
A Baltimore-based contract furniture dealership is expanding into the Richmond, Charlottesville and Hampton Roads areas.
American Office, the largest distributor of Herman Miller products in the mid-Atlantic, anticipates hiring 50 new employees as it opens a distribution center and three permanent showrooms in coming months. The company has already hired 25 employees and has secured offices in Richmond and Norfolk. It is seeking temporary space in Charlottesville.
American Office replaces Richmond-based Chasen Business Interiors as the Herman Miller dealer in the three regions. Chasen’s closed last month.
The company has more than 200 employees in four sales offices and two distribution centers in Maryland, Northern Virginia and the District of Columbia.
