Conklin is one of the nation's pioneers in office furniture recycling and reconditioning. Over 60 years ago, we started off as an office supply company and since 1981, we've made it our mission to offer facility managers and business owners a way to upsize, downsize, off-load or load-up when it comes to contract furniture.
The art of reusing existing contract furniture to provide solutions for new users is complex. The concept was built on the premise of reusing strong, high-end products that were designed with durability and years of reconfiguration in mind. While the need for durable products remains strong, economic shifts have driven manufacturers of new furniture to value-engineer existing products and create new designs that are more cost effective - In many cases limiting the owner's ability to reconfigure and reuse.
Over time, products that were built for reconfiguration and reuse often "ugly out" before they wear out. Conklin Office Furniture began to find ways to clean up, repaint and refinish these inventories. The base materials and structure often have additional decades of use when given the time, energy and know-how that our team has accumulated since we began our commitment in 1981.
