New York, NY: February 17, 2017. OFS Solutions (OFS) is pleased to announce that they have completed the installation of furniture for the Hebrew Academy of Long Beach (HALB) new 80,170 square foot educational facility in Lawrence, New York.
HALB purchased the former Lawrence district public school in 2014 for $8.5 million. Renovations included the building of new classrooms, a cafeteria and a kitchen, rebuilding the main office space, installation of an elevator, two large heated swimming pools, Wi-Fi, four new basketball courts and more parking spaces. HALB is a modern orthodox yeshiva founded 63 years ago that now teaches more than 1675 students annually, employees over 293 teachers and is located on four different campuses.
A spokesperson for HALB indicated that after an extensive analysis of many vendors, an independent consulting firm chose OFS Solutions to provide custom computer desks, bookcases, and storage cabinets among other items. The spokesperson indicated that among the many considerations “was the ability of OFS to customize these items to our specific colors and sizes. In addition, they were able to meet both the difficult pricing and delivery requirements of our facility.”
Burt Hochstein, CEO of OFS said that “we are extremely humbled to have been chosen by HALB. We were very aware of the detailed requirements of the RFQ that was issued and are proud of our ability to customize furniture to meet the needs of our clients. Being able to manufacture in the United States at the right prices is something that we feel very good about.”
