Celebrating 75 Years | A Thank You
Dear Empire Family,
This year we’re celebrating a big milestone, our 75th anniversary!
Like most small businesses, our story started with modest beginnings. Abraham Gaslow founded Empire Oﬃce Furniture in 1946. Our ﬁrst sale was a desk which we hand-delivered from our oﬃce in downtown Manhattan to our ﬁnancial services client on Wall Street.
Over the last 75 years, we’ve grown and expanded with new locations and additional services. Today, Empire is the largest Steelcase dealer nationwide, with 400+ manufacturers represented and over 400+ employees across the US. We are proud to be ranked as one of Crain’s New York Business’ Largest Privately Owned Companies year after year.
Through it all, our commitment to delivering comprehensive, creative, and cost-eﬀective solutions for our clients has only grown stronger. Today, we’re thankful for our clients who have been at the heart of our company since the beginning, and we thank our team and manufacturer partners for helping to bring our mission to life.
Join us as we take a look over the past 75 years and see how far we’ve come.
Here’s to the next 75 years together!
