For the last nine decades, Rapid-Line has been a key supplier to the OEM office furniture industry. For the last nine months, it has nurtured a plan to expand operations with its own “bespoke” furniture line. Fresh on the heels of becoming a 100% Employee-owned company, Rapid-Line is poised to join the market for commercial-grade, custom indoor/outdoor aluminum furniture.
“It’s exciting to be putting our manufacturing experience to work on our own product,” said Athena Sobczak, account rep and co-lead on the development team.
“We saw a niche in the commercial sector where companies want branded furniture that is specified for commercial applications, as well as the upscale residential leisure market where homeowners want contemporary, sleek, premium-grade patio furniture that is rust-resistant for lakeside or poolside use.”
The all-aluminum chair and loveseat can have any logo or custom design cut into the backs or can be ordered without specialty cutting. The oversized, high-quality aluminum table was designed for spacious appointment. All pieces can be powder coated in Rapid-Line’s facility and can include upholstered seats or custom wood seats for indoor use.
Rapid-Line will unveil MyLine this fall in Chicago at the upcoming Merchandise Mart that focuses on outdoor furniture. Casual Market Chicago runs from Sept. 12-15.
