Frem Group Announces Joint Venture With Berco Designs To Manufacture And Distribute Innovative Office Acoustic Privacy Solutions
30 January 2019

The new partnership of Oasis Berco, LLC will launch with the introduction of the Oasis Collection of Phone Booths, Pods, and Hubs into the North American market beginning in Q1, 2019.

The Oasis Collection, created by Frem Group, has been successfully installed in many of Europe’s leading corporations, and includes a wide range of pods, hubs, booths, and social spaces designed to allow for collaboration, one-to-one meetings, or quiet spaces. The Collection is comprised of two ranges: Oasis Linear, with straight line features to match general office partitioning, and Oasis Soft, with its unique “soft” features providing a more domestic feel.

The interest in noise reduction and privacy in work spaces is growing rapidly in the US market as more and more companies are adopting open plan offices. Frem Group has been successfully selling into the US market in limited distribution for the past two years and Oasis Berco will now allow the brand to meet marketplace demand and establish coast-to-coast distribution.

Frem Group is based in the UK and has been designing and manufacturing exceptional furniture products for over 25 years. Frem’s broad line of commercial furniture products can be found across Europe, North America, and the Middle East.

“This partnership is strategically aligned with Frem Group’s goal of rapid expansion into North America,” says Bryan Daisy, CEO of Frem Group. “We have had great response to the Oasis Collection in the US market and by adding Berco Designs’ manufacturing, sales, and distribution expertise we will quickly capture a significant share of the market for these innovative products.”

Founded in 1968 and acquired by Fairway Holdings, Inc. in 2013, Berco Designs provides a wide range of products to the contract furniture industry including tables, collaborative seating, and millwork. All of its products are proudly made in the USA at its 150,000 square foot facility in St. Louis, MO.

“We are excited to add this beautifully-designed group of products to our lineup,” says Mike Hojnacki, President of Fairway Holdings, Inc. “We have enjoyed building a strong relationship with the Frem team and think this is the start of a long-term partnership to bring European-designed furniture to the US market.”

The companies will launch their joint venture in late January at a sales meeting for their network of independent sales reps, who will begin presenting to designers and taking orders in February. A limited number of sales territories are still available, including Northern California, Pacific Northwest, and Arizona/New Mexico.
