Office furniture industry booming in the southeast
The office furniture industry is on the rise, according to an IBISWorld industry report. While high levels of unemployment and lack of growth have hampered all sectors of the U.S. economy, office furniture is back in high demand as the country recovers and businesses expand.
The southeast region of the U.S. in particular is experiencing substantial business growth and now accounts for 21.8 percent of office furniture production nationwide. These southeast companies, especially prominent in Florida and including reputable second hand business furniture companies, are catering their businesses to include local delivery as an added value to customers.
Further increasing the success of office furniture companies is the recent and steady improvement in the job climate. According to the Herald-Tribune, March unemployment rates in Florida fell to 6.7 percent - well below the national average of 7.7 percent. These positive numbers point to overall expansion and creation of businesses, which require office furniture and other amenities for new hires. With more jobs being added in leisure and hospitality - reflecting optimism about the state's tourism industry - as well as large gains in business services and private education, businesses seem to be on a continued path to success. As a result, the office furniture industry is sure to succeed, as well.
