Office furniture business grows sales and eco drive

Office furniture supplier Humanscale has reported another year of top and bottom line growth.

According to its latest filed accounts for the year ended 31 December 2018, total sales rose by 16.4% to £8.5m from £7.3m in 2017.

The company also saw pre-tax profit increase by 11.5% to £782,872 compared to its profit of £701,804 recorded the previous year.

Earlier this year, Humanscale announced the release of its annual Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Report. From operations and product development to company-wide initiatives and individual actions, the detailed report outlines Humanscale’s goal to achieve a net positive environmental impact.

“We took a look at our manufacturing and operational activities to understand our key impacts: energy, water, emissions, resource depletion, wildlife preservation, social responsibility and healthy materials,” states CEO and founder Bob King.

“In each area, we consider what it would take to go beyond “sustainability” to making a truly positive impact on the world around us. If a company can make a positive impact in all of these ways, it will be acting like a tree. While trees aim to grow, they’re self-sustaining and they replenish the environment. If we want to live at peace with the planet, then our factories must be like trees; our companies like a forest.”
