11 Answers to 11 questions we get asked a lot!
1) So who are Capex Office Interiors?
We furnish and fit out offices from the ground up. We are the major supplier of Herman Miller, Senator, Orangebox, Bisley office furniture in the Gatwick region working throughout the South East. We are also Interior Fit Out and Refurbishment main contractors. Our management team has a combined industry experience of a very frightening 200 years.
2) Where did the name Capex come from?
If you're ever passing the offices, drop in and we'll explain!
3) So what do you do?
We take the hard work out of the project for you by providing an all round support service for the architect and end-user to help make your workspace work hard: Furniture Supply, Design and Space Planning, 3D visualisation, Mock-ups, Project management, Bespoke furniture design, Fit out, Installation, Refurbishment, Training, Storage Auditing, Stockholding, Churn Management, Maintenance…
4) And what don't you do…
We don't do anything you don't want us to. We offer a support service… not one that will eclipse yours. For example, we aren't interior designers but are happy to offer our services as space planners to get the best out of the space you have using our knowledge of the furniture and interior products we are supplying.
5) Why work through a dealer rather than directly with the likes of Herman Miller, Orangebox or Bisley?
Herman Miller, Bisley, Orangebox and Senator employ a dealer network since they all have long discovered that manufacturing and servicing are two very different masters. This enables Herman Miller, for instance, to concentrate on offering an unsurpassed range of innovative product and Capex to specialise in delivering, managing and servicing projects of any scale.
6) So, do you just supply Herman Miller, Bisley and Orangebox?
While our core product offering is manufactured by these big names, we also have extensive relationships and partnerships with dozens of interiors products manufacturers and craftsmen who can create tailored pieces. Far too many to list here. This enables us to deliver your precise needs whether it be workstations, task seating, storage, loose furniture, reception desks, storage wall, conference furniture, lighting, flooring, wall solutions… in fact, anything you need.
7) Why should I trust you?
We've become one of the most skilled, resourceful and knowledgable furniture dealerships and interiors companies in the South East because we listen to the client and bring our experience to the table to create the best-value, tailored solutions for you. Take a look at the testimonials in our brochure on our What the clients say page. We are profitable and also enjoy an A Credit Rating to give you peace of mind.
8 ) What have you done?
Well, since 2005, Capex has had an unrivalled track record in top quality workspace. From high-profile projects for blue chip companies and government departments to a whole range of medium and smaller projects in every business sector. In all we have supplied over £6m of furniture, interiors and services. Have a look at our Case Studies section to see some of our past clients and most recent successes.
9) So, you're only interested in big clients right?
Absolutely not. Whatever the size of project, whether it is the delivery of just one chair, a Bisley Classic Cabinet or a 12-storey fit-out in the City, each job is treated with the passion, attention to detail and commitment we are renowned for. And it is this that has enabled us to build long-term, mutually beneficial relationships based on trust and understanding both Day 1 and Day 2.
10) So how do you work?
We believe in having one accountable point of contact. But that person is aided by our team of experts. The skills of the 21-strong support team, headed up by company founders Geoff Marshall and Ray Allinson, encompass all aspects of project management, design, sales and after sales account management - to provide ultimate support to ensure that your project goes smoothly and hits budget and schedule.
11) Why don't you have a webshop?
The majority of our corporate clients call us in to talk through and plan their requirements before making a decision to proceed with a project. For our smaller customers the range of options (even with a single Bisley Multidrawer unit) means its better to let us understand exactly what is needed and then let us guide you to a solution.
