Office furniture specialist Steelcase is set to launch a WorkLife centre in Manchester.
Manchester WorkLife will be one of 22 in leading cities around the world which showcase how office design is evolving and how good planning, coupled with the latest technology, can help give organisations the edge.
An initial staff of four will include Oliver Ronald as regional sales manager in the Northwest, and Cindy Giammattei who will head marketing. A further two appointments are to be announced, and the ambition is to increase numbers to 15 or 20 within the next 12 to 18 months.
Mark Spragg, managing director of Steelcase UK said: “WorkLife is not a retail shop, more a showcase of possibilities. attracted by Manchester’s ambition to be a technology city, and we want to reflect that.”
The company is increasing the number of its `dealer+’ partners in the Northwest, providing customers with a local service as well as continuing support for its longstanding relationship with Work Inc. in Leeds and Altrincham, part of the Eastlake Group.
WorkLife will open mid-June on the ground floor of Belvedere on Booth Street.
