Manufacturer spotlight: Hon
As the second-largest office furniture manufacturer in North America, HON are experts in designing and manufacturing furniture for corporate and educational workplaces. The Iowa-based company creates a wide range of office products, from executive desk chairs to filing cabinets. See all the HON products that Choice Office Furniture carries in our new and used office furniture showroom.
At the end of World War II, HON was founded to give jobs to returning soldiers. The Home-O-Nize Company started in 1944 by manufacturing kitchen cabinets and quickly moved into producing gas-bottle hoods. With leftover aluminum, the company manufactured products including drink coasters and recipe card file boxes. The file boxes were the first pieces of office furniture, and the company soon began designing and manufacturing a large line of office products.
HON’s long history is evidence of the quality of design and manufacturing of all their furniture. Choose HON furniture for quality seating, desks and storage that have been tested in offices, schools and workplaces all around the world. Here are some of our favourite HON furniture.
Although the Flagship Mobile Pedestal looks like a simple and classic cabinet, it showcases HON’s ability for durable and stylish designs. The metal storage cabinets have been tested in labs for durability, and they continuously outperform more expensive filing cabinets. There are a variety of finishes and handles, meaning the filing cabinets can match any office décor. They can also come with castors for easy mobile storage.
HON manufactures seating for all occasions – from traditional executive chairs to modern classroom seating. The SmartLink series is an example of HON’s innovative designs. With a variety of bold colours, finishes and chair feet options (such as glides or casters), these chairs suit classrooms for all ages. Try SmartLink chairs for workshop or collaboration rooms, where mobile and functional seating enhances teamwork.
Interchangeable tables foster creativity in any workplace. HON’s unique table shapes in the Build Tables series let you rearrange the tables for different rooms or purposes. They come in geometric shapes that are uncommon in offices but add flair with functionality.
