Bisley office furniture

September 22nd 2008

Bisley With manufacturing bases in Newport, South Wales and Bisley in Surrey Bisley are one of the largest office furniture manufacturers in Europe and employ over 1000 people. The business was founded by Freddy Brown in 1931 who first started repairing card at a site near Woking. In 1941 Freddy moved the Company to its present location on te back of MOD contracts to support the war effort,. One of these was the manufacture of containers carrying supplies that were dropped by parachute. At the end of the war with manufacturing capacity and no orders the Company went back to car repair. A chance meeting with a London based office equipment wholesaler produced a order for 24 metal waste paper baskets and the move into office furniture began. Tony Brown, Freddy’s son joined the business in 1960 when the turnover was around £95,000 pa and employees numbered 28. By 1970 Tony has bought the business from his father and the Company continued to prosper. 1980 saw the launch of their first filing cabinet and 1190 the side opening tambour cupboard. 1198 saw the addition of te Newport manufacturing facility.
