Our History – The Business that Jim Built.

Desks-Plus-Jim-Forbes-IllustrationIn 1989 Jim Forbes decided he could do it better. He took his experience, knowledge and friendly nature and started a small office furniture business.
Through the years, Desks Plus has blossomed into one of Canada’s largest suppliers of Canadian-made furniture to the Workplace, Education, and Healthcare markets. That includes new and previously experienced furniture, conference tables, computer workstations, surface material, lateral and vertical filing solutions, storage systems, executive furnishings, tables, ergonomic items, a wide variety of seating and patient and resident room furniture.

Well known for its excellent customer service and levels of satisfaction, Desks Plus can provide a wide variety of services to its customers, whether it is ergonomic assessments or interior design services to help clients develop the most efficient and healthy workspaces possible.

As the years passed, Jim was determined to keep improving his office furniture business.

And made sure that Desks Plus never rested on its laurels. Desks Plus began expanding on a worldwide scope by specializing in the design and set up of call centers. The Desks Plus team of designers and installers can now set up a call center from start to finish in a matter of days, if not hours.

Looking at the big picture is also important to the team at Desks Plus.

When it comes to “thinking green”, Desks Plus takes pride in the fact the its office furniture is sourced from suppliers that adhere to strict environmentally-conscious manufacturing practices. Desks Plus can even recycle many types of office furniture for its clients convenience.
