2015 CE Pro 100 Brand Analysis: Top Furniture
Salamander, Sanus lead the way in the most used furniture brands in the 2015 CE Pro 100 Brand Analysis.
In this comprehensive CE Pro 100 brand analysis series, CE Pro senior editor Bob Archer delivers an in-depth look at the most frequently used manufacturers in nearly 50 product categories. The numbers associated with each manufacturer reflect the number of CE Pro 100 dealers using that brand.
The brands that are used by the CE Pro 100 are closely watched because these are the most successful companies in the industry. Many integrators look to the brands that are being used by these companies as a signal of success. This brand usage differs from rank and file integrator usage because it does not include brands that are sold through distribution typically, but focuses on direct-to-dealer brands.
The furniture category continues its contraction with dealers consolidating choices. Benefiting from this contraction are Salamander and Sanus. Connecticut-based manufacturer Salamander adds approximately 33 percent more dealers, while Sanus adds just over 10 percent more from last year. Click here to download the complete analysis.
