New Director and new name for Gresham Wood Technical Furniture & Design

George Rutson has been appointed as the new Director which coincides with the renaming and rebranding of the company from Gresham Wood Industries to Gresham Wood Technical Furniture & Design.
With a heritage of over 34 years, the company has created furniture for the security market as well as offices, aviation, ports, broadcast newsrooms and post-production facilities.
Rutson will be leading the sales business across the UK and will project manage major installations. Prior to the appointment, George Rutson was employed as Sales Consultant at Gresham Wood, and has been working with the company for the last 15 months. He was formerly employed by AKA Design Ltd. With extensive experience in the management of the design and installation of furniture, he is an innovator in developing designs for leading control rooms across the UK.
The move follows the decision of John Billett, Founder and Director to retire after 34 years. Billett commented: "We're very happy to appoint George Rutson as Director. I am confident that his wealth of experience, record of success, and positive attitude will maintain and enhance the high level of quality that Gresham Wood furniture provides."
Rutson added: "With the launch of the new company, we remain 100% committed to our existing customers. We are now rejuvenating the company and giving it a fresh new image combined with contemporary designs and materials to meet today's market needs. Our team, which includes specialist designers and engineers, can provide detailed packages at the right price for monitoring and communications solutions!"
All bespoke control room furniture complies with the ISO 11064 Ergonomic Design of Control Centres and DDA standards.
