journey that has taken place to get from concept to reality.
Hyphen play a
key part in this process, and here we take a look at some of the hard work our

most efficient way possible, undertake the manual tasks of loading and
unloading, and can even help with the installation process at the end user!

The Active range is a height adjustable desking system that stands for two key characteristics: functionality and quality.
A two or three level column with
a wider segment at the bottom allows for a smooth height transition, leaving
the user in complete control to set the most comfortable height.
An aesthetic column
design with a glide system helps prevent the desk columns from possible paint
scratches, with a built in anti-collision solution to limit material
damage in case the desk collides with a solid object.
Promoting a more dynamic working style,
sit-stand desking allows the individual to focus on the task at hand.
In addition to health benefits, our sit-stand desks have other advantages; the motor operates very silently and consumes little power, with a choice of feet and extra panels for better sound absoprtion.

In case you’ve been living under a rock for the past two years, you will be aware that aside from any last minute glitches, Great Britain will be leaving the EU in the much talked about Brexit on 29th March 2019.
political stance and the ‘will we, won’t we’ confusion our Prime Minister and
politicians across all parties are debating, we can’t simply brush this under
the office flooring and pretend it’s not happening.
this is causing concern amongst the business community, and with the
possibility of a ‘No Deal Brexit’ on the table there is confusion aplenty
around imports and exports.
As many of our
customers know, a lot of our office furniture products are manufactured and
transported over from the Narbutas factory in Lithuania, therefore it is
possible that there could be issues surrounding offering a seamless supply in
the short term.
With this in
mind, we would like to reassure our customers that it is very much ‘business as
usual’ at Hyphen, and that we have increased our stock levels during this
period of uncertainty to ensure our customers still have access to the vast
range of office furniture products we supply. Our service to you during this
period will therefore remain unaffected.
What can you do to prepare for Brexit?
Plan ahead! If
you have any office fit-out projects on the horizon that are likely to need
shorter lead times for furniture supply then now is the time to start getting
your delivery schedules in place. We would advise our customers to ensure they
plan at least 8 weeks in advance of ‘B-day’ from the 29th March.
How can Hyphen help?
above, we are purposely increasing our stock levels to make sure our supply can
meet the demand of our customers during the early post-Brexit period, so you
can contact us any time to discuss your project requirements and expected lead
times over the next few months.
We are naturally
positively minded at Hyphen, and whilst there may be uncertainty on the horizon
we would like to reassure all our customers that we are ready for Brexit and
prepared for whatever the outcome may be!
If, like us, you
are also planning ahead then please drop us a line to see how we can assist and
become an integral part of your supply chain over the next few months.

We often get asked what our relationship with Narbutas is at Hyphen, so to avoid any doubt we thought this would be the perfect subject for our latest blog!
Hyphen is one of the largest UK distributors, and the main one in the north of England, for the Narbutas office furniture product range. This relationship, amongst many more we have with other manufacturers, ensures we stay at the fore front of office design trends, enabling our customers to access top quality office furniture on short lead times.
Narbutas is a Lithuanian manufacturer of modern, durable and functional office furniture. Their product development and innovation teams are market leaders when it comes to high quality design solutions, that are functional and easily adapted to various different office spaces.
This outlook fits perfectly with the Hyphen brand, which is why the relationship we have with Narbutas works so well. We live and breathe office furniture and position ourselves as a solution provider as opposed to merely a product supplier, so our knowledge of how office furniture fits into a wider office fit-out project is second to none.
What lead times should you expect?
Considering the distance, not as long as you might expect! We stock many Narbutas product lines in our warehouse in Sheffield that can be delivered nationwide within 7 working days. We have our own transportation and installation team, so we can start working on your order as soon as it is placed to meet your tighter deadlines.
For non-stock items, we work to a 4-week delivery schedule. Typically the products will be in production for three weeks, then once they have been quality checked they go on to one of our monthly trailers, delivered into Sheffield by road transport before the Hyphen team offloads, further quality checks and then delivery into our customers.
Because we have regular deliveries into our warehouse from Narbutas this means our customers are never usually waiting longer than a month for their products, which allows them to accurately plan this into their office fit-out project timescales.
Which Narbutas lines do Hyphen supply?
Pretty much everything! We work with Narbutas to advise them what we know our customers want, which helps their new product development.
We can even work with Narbutas for bespoke requirements – as long as our customers have a full spec of what they require we can arrange for special products to be made to order.
To give you an idea of the wide range that is available, check out our new Product & Specification Guide for 2019 – many of the product lines in here are manufactured by Narbutas.
If you have a requirement for a reliable and efficient service for any Narbutas product lines please contact us on 0114 232 7402 or firstname.lastname@example.org and one of our expert team will be glad to help!

As another year draws to a close, it gives us time to reflect on what has been one of the most successful and eventful years for Hyphen Office Furniture.
2018 has been the year of the ‘team’ in Hyphen. Whilst we have experienced growth in recent years, this time it feels different as we have done this together. Our recent growth has allowed us to take some forward steps for the business, and we feel we can look back at 2018 with a lot of pride and a great feeling of achievement.
So what makes this year different?
On the face of it our mission remains consistent – to become the go-to partner for commercial interiors dealers for the supply of quality, contemporary office furniture – but behind the scenes there has been a lot of progress.
We are now a team of 6, doubling our internal workforce since this time last year with the addition of new faces in operations, logistics and installation (check out our team page to put faces to names!). Our new recruits are there to ensure our customer service levels are consistently high, and that our customers can get answers to any of their questions as quickly and efficiently as possible.
Due to our team expansion, this also led to us out growing our office space, resulting in a new purpose built office situated in the heart of our warehouse space. We’re very proud of it – check out our new office video here!
So what else is new?
Well, we have introduced many new product lines in 2018, such as the Nova Wood range and Arcipelago soft seating (we made a video on this), as well as showcasing many of our project based office furniture solutions. This all links to our mission, and one of our main company objectives of becoming an integral part of our customers’ supply chains.
We’re also proud to have hit our sales targets for the year (we smashed it actually) and we’re looking forward to celebrating this as a team (it is the year of the ‘team’ after all) before we wind down for the festive period, ready to hit the target trail again in 2019.
All that is left now is to wish all our fantastic customers, suppliers and contacts a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year – we couldn’t have done this without you!
They Hyphen office will be closed from 3pm on Friday 21st December 2018, re-opening at 8am on Wednesday 2nd January 2019.
