Tony Hill Interviewed By The Baltimore Business Journal

Wednesday, March 27th, 2013

Just in time for spring, Edwards & Hill Office Furniture has great news to share! Tony Hill, managing partner of Edwards & Hill Office Furniture, has been featured in the Baltimore Business Journal.

Edwards & Hill Office Furniture is a full-service commercial furniture company founded in 1998.

Tony and Hans believe God led them to create a successful furniture company because the right business mentors were sent into their lives at the right time and for the right need. One person was Jay Isom who served as an invaluable business mentor and guide for Tony and Hans.

How did Tony and Hans finance Edwards & Hill Office Furniture?

Originally, the furniture company was bootstrap financed. Now, Tony and Hans have a line of credit with M&T Bank and credit with their suppliers and vendors.

Where did Tony and Hans get the idea to start a commercial furniture company?

Originally, Tony and Hans created an entertainment industry website where agents were listed, casting information was provided, and where to get head shots could be discovered.

This is when Tony and Hans decided to sell web advertisement and offered a premium package for subscribers.

Tony and Hans realized they would never make the money they needed to make the business thrive so they created a marketing company that focused on event planning and business promotions. This business venture also did not generate good cash flow.

What did branch them into a successful commercial business was Tony’s relationship with a contracting specialist.

Through the contracting specialist, Tony placed a bid on six chairs, which he purchased. Months later Tony sold those six chairs to a client. The client later requested cubicles and a freestanding office.

Tony believes to this day that God opened a door for Hans and him to succeed. Tony stated in the interview with the Baltimore Business Journal that many people are afraid to step through the door God opens for them.

When God opened the door for Tony, Tony saw an opportunity to step through that door and advises anyone, “Don’t be afraid to succeed.”

What business advice does Tony give to startups and successful business owners?

Tony highly recommends that business owners hire the right people in the right positions to save the business money short term and long term.

This business strategy works because business owners have the opportunity to delegate as well as focus on the direction and vision of future business ventures on behalf of the company.

How To Design An Internet Cafe That Drives Major Revenue

Friday, March 22nd, 2013

Are you planning to set up an Internet cafe? If yes, Edwards & Hill Office Furniture is here to help you design a highly functional and stylish Internet cafe.

Internet cafes are in popular demand and starting an Internet cafe could truly bring in major revenue for you.

This article will provide you valuable information on how to set up an Internet cafe.

Where are the most successful Internet cafes located?

If you want to generate major revenue with your Internet cafe, you should set shop in a high traffic area such as urban restaurants and tourist spots ( the zoo, museums, near college campuses).

What are the basic equipment necessities for an Internet cafe?

An Internet cafe should feature the following equipment and office furniture items:

  • Computers

  • Networking Equipment

  • Chairs

  • Tables

  • Cables

If your Internet cafe has a theme, you will have a better chance at attracting customers.

Some ways you can attract customers to your Internet cafe beyond your interior design and furnishing is to provide food service (drinks, snacks, cafe food) and office services (faxing, copying, and high speed access).

Provide diverse amenities and services that truly cater to your target audience.

The Internet cafe design layout should fit the space. You should have enough space for food and beverage preparation, consumption and an area for computer equipment. We also recommend decorating the wall space with painting as a public gallery.

Edwards & Hill Office Furniture will help you through the design process every step of way – layout, furniture and even lighting scheme.

Lab Space: The Benefits Of Modern Laboratory Furniture

Saturday, March 9th, 2013

Are you designing a modern laboratory or lab remodeling a pre-existing lab? If yes to one or the other, Edwards & Hill Office Furniture is here to help you design and furnish a lab with exceptional flexibility.

Good flexibility in a laboratory is crucial to maintaining high work productivity because techniques and equipment change rapidly in a laboratory setting. Lab furniture should be sturdy, durable and attractive.

To keep current with laboratory safety precautions and maintain high productivity in the laboratory, you will need versatile lab furniture for on-the-floor and off-the-floor lab work.

An example of on-the-floor furniture would be steel/wood/plastic laminate cabinets bolted or sealed to the floor with rubber or vinyl cove molding.

An example of off-the-floor systems would be steel frames above worktops and below cabinets.

Off the floor furniture systems are low maintenance and have excellent adaptability to changing lab needs.

Edwards & Hill Office Furniture highly recommends purchasing laboratory ergonomic furniture to meet your lab work requirements and comfort.

Ergonomic furniture can provide your laboratory infinite adjustability for work surfaces, lab shelving, laboratory cabinetry and other lab necessities.

Steel casework furniture elements work best for laboratories such as reagent racks and wall mounted cabinetry.

When furnishing modern labs always keep in mind that lab furniture needs to provide enough flexibility for expansion and reconfiguration at any given time.

Storage, mobility, strength and stability will need to be regularly available for heavy instruments and assembly fixtures such as laboratory workbenches, laboratory fume cupboards, and other service modules.

Here at Edwards & Hill Office Furniture, we can provide quality, economical technical workstations, ergonomic chairs, wall cabinets, steel casework, reagent racks, countertop solutions, and more for full laboratory modular versatility.

The following are examples of laboratories that benefit from ergonomic laboratory furniture:
