As of August 29, 2005 the Massachusetts branch of Conklin Office Furniture can be found at 56 Canal Street in Holyoke. After a long restoration, Conklin has redone a section of the original American Thread Company mill to serve as their new headquarters. After eighteen months of planning, the showroom and offices have been moved into 12,000 square feet of the mill. This move combines Conklins' Massachusetts sales, showroom, and warehouse headquarters under one roof. The president of the company, Franco Arnold, has been anxiously awaiting the move to Holyoke and feels "the consolidation of Conklins' will increase efficiencies, which will translate into improved customer service."
The mill has been home to Conklin's warehouse for several years. Recently undergoing a major makeover to a section of the mill, the showroom and offices were also moved to Holyoke. The mill is approximately 200,000 square feet and Conklin has the building filled to the roof with quality used office furniture.
The new showroom has been restored to its original look with sandblasted brick walls and refinished wood floors. The showroom was updated with new windows and doors as well as brightly colored accents to bring it all together. The offices are a sampling of different brand cubicles we offer for sale with a mix of Knoll Morrison, Steelcase Avenir, and two styles of Steelcase 9000. If your in the area please stop in and check out our new space. You will find all types of office furniture on display in our showroom. Although this is just a sample, it gives our customers a good idea of the quality office furntiure that Conklin's offers. We currently have cubicles
