New Literature

Already in circulation is our new iBench brochure, including new images and additional products to further enhance the range that is continuingly going from strength to strength.

October saw the arrival of a refreshed Pure Brochure. A new layout and new working office images have been added to help visualize Pure in a working office environment. Pure continues to be a competitive alternative to iBench.

The ‘Collections Brochure’ is due to be launched early 2013. This brochure is an overview of all Imperials furniture ranges and will be available for overprinting by our dealers.
Contact your area sales manager for further updates.


Investment in machinery

Imperial have invested in the UK’s first BAZ machine incorporating P.U.R glue that creates a waterproof seal from edge tape to board, eliminating water damage.

Our machine was exhibited at the largest UK woodworking machine exhibition ‘W12’ in Birmingham.

The BAZ machine is 30% faster than its predecessor and offers a more economical production process through computer optimisation.

The machine is capable of being utilized by a single skilled operator, providing low labour production. This allows more efficient deployment of staff in other areas. Further more in January 2013 there will be a significant investment in an angle plant beam saw with turntable which is loaded automatically by the new crane operated board management system. This will be integrated with a new 24 magazine automated return feed edge boarder with bar code scanner. This will allow greater capacity and quality of product.


The Seating Collection

New for 2013 Imperial Office Furniture is proud to launch its new seating collection. The Imperial range is cutting edge and is designed with style in mind. We feel that the quality of our product will surpass our customer’s expectations and with the support and back up of all our literature and images will help our vast dealer network succeed in this ever changing competitive market. The Collection consists of a vast range of mid market to high end products with offerings from executive seating to operative chairs and conference seating as well as a superior soft and relax complement.


iBench 3rd Level Storage

Third level storage has been introduced into the iBench range. This will further enhance the range and allow the user to store files above desk height and off the desk top creating a cleaner working area. This can be viewed in the current iBench brochure.

For further information regarding the above please contact your area sales manager.

July 2010 saw the United Registrar of Systems (URS) award Imperial not only the ISO 14001 Environmental System but also the OHSAS 18001 Health and Safety System.

These additional accreditations accompanied by the ISO 9001 Quality System complete the set of UKAS management policies, enabling Imperial to develop further into the Public Sector Markets.

To accompany the new literature Imperial are developing a unique buyers guide intended to provide an insight into Imperial product ranges. Popular products from each range will be marketed within one catalogue. It is our intention to offer further benefits to clients by providing an "Overprinting" facility which would enable dealers to promote Imperial products in their own unique catalogue.

Promoted in January and February editions of Mix Magazine the success of our latest range "iBench" has seen Imperials company profile develop further. After successfully completing projects for the Findus Group headquarters and the Kelcoo Group, 1st Quarter Sales have increased by 25% and are set to continue throughout the second quarter.


Quality Assurance

After receiving the Quality ISO 9001:2008 certificate in June 1999, Imperial are continuing to strive for further accreditation.

We are currently working towards Environmental ISO 14001:2004 and Health and Safety ISO 18001:2007. Audits are currently taking place with the final review scheduled for May.

If we can achieve these accreditations, hopefully to be awarded in June, this will be a fantastic step forward for the business.


Factory Expansion

The first quarter has seen Imperial invest further in Factory expansion. A further 8,000 sq ft of warehousing space was acquired in February bringing our total square capacity to 80,000 sq ft.

Additional investment within the company includes a new CNC optimising beam saw delivered in January 2010 and a point to point CNC drilling machine ordered to be delivered in May.
