WIth 30 years in business, Arora continues to grow at a rapid pace and appears on Inc. 5000 list of America’s Fastest Growing Companies. Headquartered in Chadds Ford, PA, just outside of Philadelphia, Arora maintains locations in major cities like Boston, New York, San Jose, Atlanta, and Charlotte.You can see their work all over the country from in places like the Philadelphia Airport to Grand Central Station. Bridgework, runway lighting, and security systems are all part of a day’s work for Arora so when it came to planning the expansion of their corporate offices, one would think that this would be an easy task for Arora to take on.
Not so much. Arora had the daunting task of trying to find a match for some high-end Knoll cubicles and Steelcase desks. Maintaining a consistent look across the new and old parts of the office was a top priority. SInce the original office was completed in 2008, finding matching furniture proved to be a challenge. Outfitting the whole office with new furniture would cost as much as $14,000 per desk and $25,000 per cubicle which would bring the total price tag to well over one million dollars. That simply wasn’t an option. The goal was to find used high-quality furniture from the same designer that would blend in with the existing floor plan. After shopping around, Arnold’s kept coming up as a solution.
“It was the architect, Nayan Shah (who found Arnold’s), but what I realized is that there were other people we were dealing with around the country who were buying from you,” recalls Manik Arora, CEO of Arora Engineers.

When Tom, General Manager of B&W Tek, and Everett, Quality Control Technician, asked visitors to comment on the work environment, there was a lot of negative feedback. With the negative comments, they knew a change had to be made. A change that involved Arnold’s Office Furniture.
The original office featured bland cubicles with 6’ high walls that made employees feel alone. Tom described the office as “A sea of old 20 year old cubicles and bad carpet.” Not only were the cubicles 20 years old, but they were never installed correctly or ever repaired. Enough was enough for B&W Tek.
Tom- “We decided to upgrade the office and that was for two reasons: health and welfare of our employees was number one. And number two was to give us a more conducive environment for communication, and for doing business in here. And then it was also to give us more of a professional look for the customers and clients that we were going to bring into our office – so that’s why we upgraded the facility.”
