Q Educational Furniture
Q Educational Furniture was launched in 2009 by Julian Sheldrake and Gary Phillips. Their vision was to avoid being ‘just another catalogue furniture supplier’ by actually listening to and understanding their clients’ individual needs, then delivering products to meet them with a service which delights them. This was never going to be easy, but with their combined experience running office supplies businesses and major blue chip infrastructure and management projects, they relished the challenge.
Determined to be different; Q Educational Furniture is all about its customers and creating their perfect space.
In a relatively short space of time the company has already established a fantastic reputation and built a portfolio of beautifully fitted out offices, educational environments and reception areas. Its clients range from small local firms in the Hertfordshire area, through to high profile national chains and head office locations. The company moved into new offices and workshop in Cuffley, near Hertford, in June 2013 (beautifully fitted-out of course) and taken on new staff to help manage the office and look after its customers’ needs. Gary and Julian have developed efficient systems and processes to ensure that Q Educational Furniture’s chosen manufacturers and business partners are all working towards the same goal: the total satisfaction of their customers.
With nearly 30 years’ experience supplying office and educational furniture and associated products, Julian’s contacts, knowledge and personal reputation within the industry have been significant in establishing strong UK manufacturing links. His experience in the industry is matched only by his commitment to customer service and putting client relationships at the forefront of every decision the business makes.
The operational strength of the business and its ability to deliver high standards time after time is down to Gary’s decades of experience delivering major projects for blue chip organisations around the world. These include working for companies such as: Mercedes-Benz Finance, Nissan Finance, Shell Capital, Cisco, Citi-Capital and Mercedes-Benz.
