New York, NY: October 27, 2017. OFS Solutions (OFS) is pleased to announce that they have completed the installation of office furniture in the business office of New York/Queens in Long Island, New York.
NewYork-Presbyterian Queens, located in Flushing, New York, is a community teaching hospital affiliated with Weill Cornell Medicine, serving Queens and Metro New York residents. The 535-bed tertiary care facility provides services in 14 clinical departments and numerous sub-specialties.
Over the past ten years New York Queens has moved many of their administrative and back office operations off-site to various locations on Long Island. As part of this effort to increase efficiency, a 10,000 square foot space was rented in Lake Success, NY to consolidate many of the group’s operations. OFS Solutions has provided furniture and workstations to NewYork-Presbyterian/ Queens for many years and was one of the vendors asked to submit a proposal for the newly acquired space. The project entailed workstations, private offices, conference rooms and ancillary areas such as cafeteria space.
“The ability to provide space planning, state of the art furniture, and meet our budgetary needs was paramount in our choosing OFS Solutions,” said a spokesperson for NY/Queens. “When we evaluated Friant workstations we saw a product that was equal in quality to the major brands, with a better warranty and at a savings of about 40%. In addition, their delivery time was three times faster than other vendors’.”
Burt Hochstein, CEO of OFS Solutions, related that the recent announcement of OFS Solutions as Friant’s exclusive dealer for distribution in New York City and the surrounding metropolitan area played an important role in their being awarded the project. Friant was able to gain the confidence of the New York Queens executives by showing successful installations in companies such as Raytheon, Time Warner Cable, Skanska, Houzz and the Golden State Warriors corporate headquarters.
