An Impressive Legacy
Desks Plus has been a leading office designer and furniture supplier for over 26 years. The company was originally launched in 1989 by Jim Forbes, a local entrepreneur who was determined to provide his commercial customers with a one-stop-shop for all their office furniture needs.
Jim`s son Marc took over the family business in 2012 when his father passed away. And Marc has continued to run Desks Plus, using the same core values his father instilled in him from a very young age―principles like quality, service, and trust.
Several years ago, Desks Plus started to expand its business by specializing in the design and set up of call centres. The Desks Plus team of designers and factory-trained assembly crews can set up a centre from start to finish―and has tackled assignments across the globe, establishing call centres everywhere from Las Vegas to Nicaragua.
As Niagara`s go-to source for office furniture, the Desks Plus team has built a strong reputation over the years for its ability to provide the ultimate in furniture solutions.
And it`s looking forward to proudly continuing to serve its customers` needs. BL
