About us – “OFAS was founded in 1987 by Margaret Haynes from a vision to provide advisory services to the commercial furniture trade, assisting Manufacturers, Dealers and Service Providers. When developing the services, Margaret was asked by the Associates to publish a regular newsletter, providing them the opportunity to promote their products and services to interested parties within their sector.
Over the years, OFAS has become the leading light of information and has always been at the forefront of innovation, welcoming End-Users into the organisation, widening its reach and network. OFAS is proud to be a central hub providing a valued and impartial service to both trade and non-trade Associates.
OFAS has been instrumental in assisting both European and other International companies, with the launch of their products in the UK and Ireland. The OFAS services have enabled them to reach vast audiences and establish themselves within the UK market with ease. OFAS has always been ahead of the times, developing direct mail services by building upon an enviable database, introducing more publications, evolving the website and online services.
Very early on, OFAS recognised the impact social media would have in the commercial world, so to support our Associates we developed comprehensive social media solutions and live feeds. We pride ourselves that we ensure our Associates have access to all technical advancements to help them thrive and grow in the ever evolving and highly competitive business world.
We recently moved premises and celebrated our 30 years anniversary, honoured that we are recognised as the leading advisory service for impartial advice and support. We are purely funded by the Associates we serve, and regularly receive thanks and recommendations, which is heart warming to hear. In recognition with the fast paced environment we live and work in, we are introducing new services to help support our Associates. Myself and the team at OFAS hope you enjoy and fully utilise what’s on offer, as always we value your feedback and welcome suggestions for new areas where we can support you.
