OFM began in 1995 when Abel Zalcberg, a furniture-industry veteran, realized there was an opportunity in the marketplace for a company that could have faster delivery times by keeping inventory in stock. Using personal savings, he and his wife Barbara set up an office in their home, printed up a catalog and sold chairs from vendors Abel had worked with in the past. They believed that quick delivery—take an order in the morning, ship it the same afternoon—would set their young company apart. The plan worked and the company is still known for its fast shipping.
Today, OFM is a thriving wholesale operation that specializes in providing affordable furniture to general businesses and government offices, as well as schools and hospitals. The company sells just about everything needed to furnish an office out of its 124,000-square- foot office and warehouse in Holly Springs. OFM also contracts with manufacturers in Mexico, Taiwan and China to design furniture and products that meet its exacting standards.
Despite its growth, OFM remains a family affair. Barbara and Abel’s son, Blake, started as a 12-year-old – filing papers when the business was still based at home and later spending summers and afternoons after school working in the warehouse. He joined OFM full-time eight years ago and now serves as the company’s chief executive officer.
OFM continually looks for new ways to support its dealers, and in January 2013, the OFM library launched on 20-20 Giza. Dealers who already use 20-20 software can download the OFM library from the 20-20 website, or they can contact their OFM account representative for any help with layouts and space planning.
The OFM product lineup includes all kinds of seating from basic task chairs to the new Avenger series Big and Tall chairs which are rated up to 500 pounds. OFM also carries modular furniture and panels, café and cafeteria furniture, casegoods, storage solutions – and all of it is still shipping same day!
