Office clearance and move management specialist ORS has doubled the size of its vehicle fleet and made a new addition to its sales team.

With 20 years’ experience in the office furniture sector, Herbie Johnson joins as sales manager and will be responsible for sales across both the Aston and Burton offices, as well as expanding the existing new furniture division of the business.

Karl Ward took over the ownership of the business as managing director six months ago and has since grown the client base to include regional giants such as Hammonds, Kier and Severn Trent.

Mr Ward said: “Acting responsibly is becoming increasingly important to UK companies and the strength of ORS lies in its ability to provide a service which makes both environmental and commercial sense.”

ORS UK has also revealed plans to expand in the near future, following recent investment in a new integrated client base IT system and further research into other sources to obtain and save furniture from landfill.

“The environmental and business benefits of the service have attracted customers from across the Midlands and wider regions and we believe that the time is right to build upon our existing offer and lay the foundations for the next few years,” said Mr Ward.

“One area that we are expanding is our new furniture division, which complements our refurbished sales division and offers customers the widest possible choice.

“Herbie’s appointment is key to supporting this growth and increasing the client base moving forward.”
