has been providing procurement and purchasing services for Kimmerle Group’s client base for over fifteen years. As an integral part of Kimmerle Group’s seamless turnkey platform, Kimmerle Workspace works alongside Kimmerle Newman Architects, Kimmerle Branding, and Kimmerle Project Management to ensures that client needs and project vision are incorporated at every level through furniture and fixtures. Workspace excels with a primary, unique model: providing competitive solicitation services involving manufacturer-direct pricing, resulting in deeply discounted product from the country’s top manufacturers. Having placed product with all major producers, Workspace brings the furniture community to compete for our clients’ business to establish national contract discounting and pricing. Where tight client schedules do not permit a full solicitation process, Workspace places product directly at the same discounts owing to extended manufacturer relationships and volume product placement. Every Workspace transaction is an open-book event with complete transparency and the strongest ethical commitments. Also excelling at project management and corporate client services, Workspace has serviced clients in over fifteen states, handling complex inventory management and relocation services for national account clients lasting ten-plus year clients.
