A Barrow furniture business has been taken over by RFM Group.

The growing property group confirmed their purchase of Centric Office Solutions Ltd this week.

Staff at Centric Office Solutions, whose showroom is based on Andrews Way, Barrow, will all transfer over as part of the deal.

Ian Flanagan, RFM Group’s CEO, believes the Barrow business is in a great position to prosper under the Leeds-based organisation.

Mr Flanagan said: “There is no doubt that the workplace and office environment has radically changed and continues to evolve at pace.

"The furniture, fixtures and equipment (FF&E) and fit-out markets are ripe for disruption.

"Centric Office Solutions Ltd provides an impressive service that has been delighting customers across the UK.

"Utilising RFM’s robust processes and smart technology they are well placed to capitalise on the workplace revolution and grow significantly.”

Stuart Bucknall, Centric Office Solutions Ltd director added: “RFM Group’s vision and drive to deliver a truly integrated suite of solutions across all aspects of property is nothing short of ground-breaking.

"Their impressive technology and customer focus will build on Centric Office Solutions Ltd service excellence.”

Centric Office Solutions have over 30 years experience of providing FF&E to customers across the UK.

RFM Group delivers connected property services, backed by next-generation technologies to guarantee compliance, safety, on-time delivery and effective cost-management across all projects.

This is RFM Group’s third acquisition in six months as they look to diversify towards a broad base of property-related areas.
