What Is Remanufactured Furniture?

POSTED:

Facility managers often turn to remanufactured office furniture for its cost-effectiveness. But as companies and customers alike are becoming more environmentally savvy, the “green factor” of remanufactured furniture also makes it appealing. Business owners are also always pleased when a substantial asset purchase is achieved well under budget. It’s a rare thing in business: good for the company, good for the remanufacturer, and good for the environment.

Benefits of Remanufactured Furniture

It’s a sad fact that many people are unaware that old office furniture can be remanufactured to like-new condition. That’s one of the reasons why millions of tons of used office furniture are thrown away every year. Remanufactured furniture:

  • Reduces material demands
  • Lowers carbon emissions
  • Keeps furniture in use and out of landfills

A Greener Solution

Furniture manufacturers often present themselves as green by offering furniture made of recycled materials. While this manufacturing technique does reduce carbon emissions and keeps reusable materials out of the environment, remanufactured furniture has a near-zero environmental effect. There is no manufacturing offset and the only environmental effects are from the shipping of the furniture from the remanufacturer to the client.

There is an almost endless supply of remanufactured furniture. It comes in many styles, colors, and materials and can be used in virtually all business sectors. Did we mention that they’re substantially less expensive than new furniture?
