A client has approached me with a piece of ergonomic furniture that she liked and preferred for their office fit-out. The image provided to us has no clue of the brand and source of the piece of furniture. As we are searching for the product on the internet we came across a company located on the outskirts of Singapore.
Finding the right company
After driving almost an hour from our office in the Central Business District. I was surprised to see one of the widest collection of ergonomic and contemporary office furniture tucked away on a two-story showroom in Woodlands. The name of the company, Exsto Asia Pte Ltd.
Looking around their showroom, We found what we are looking for. It was actually an Ergotron work fit product that our client has confirmed. We found more interesting products from this company. We had a good feeling that they will be one of our regular supplier for our future ergonomic requirements.
A complete range of Ergonomic Office Furniture
As we continued to view their place, We found an interesting mix of height adjustable tables, monitor holders, and metal storage just to name a few. Located on the ground floor are colorful, collaborative and contemporary furniture from Lightspace. Consequently, we found this collection perfect for co-working space and modern office that requires agile designs and a socially engaged workforce. Let me share the Lightspace catalog here.
Meeting the people behind Exsto Asia
We also had a chance to meet the Sales Director, Mr. Nigel Lim and we talked about his humble beginnings from their small space in Changi to this sprawling showroom and warehouse at Woodlands Horizon. As a result, what started out as a one-man business dealing with office accessories to local office furniture vendors has grown into a 14-man operation working tirelessly to provide the best service to customers like us.
“According to Nigel, what makes Exsto Asia standout from the rest is his desire to create a modern and healthy workplace solution to their customers with the ERGO life brand.”
They strive to always keep pace with the latest trends and technology available both local and overseas. Nigel frequently travels to trade shows overseas to find the best products that they can develop or import into Singapore.
10 years in the Office Furniture Industry
During our conversation, we instantly clicked. I found out that they are also celebrating their 10th year anniversary. Luckily my team was invited to grace the event held on the 10th of May. During their anniversary, we were able to mingle with other players in the office furniture industry. Eventually, it was a fun and entertaining evening.
Lastly, what started out as a client problem turned out to be a blessing in disguise for us. As we are able to find a new partner in Exsto Asia and meet a friend in Mr. Nigel Lim and his very accommodating staff.
