Furniture World News on

Consumers Digest magazine has designated two Bush Industries home office products as Consumers Digest Best Buys. The article, entitled, "Top-Drawer Home Office Furniture," gives the Heritage Pine Swing Out Office Armoire and the Jagger Comfort Zone™ Computer Cart the designation in the June 2004 issue. Consumers Digest is a leading consumer publication founded in 1959. The publication evaluates consumer products and provides timely information about diverse consumer matters. According to publisher, Randy Weber, each product has been recognized by the editors in the current issue as having exceptional value in today's highly competitive marketplace. On average, a Consumer's Digest Best Buy Rating is awarded to fewer than three percent of the competing models in any given product category. "I'm very pleased but not surprised," said Rob Ayres, President of Bush Industries. "This reinforces what we've known, that we're the value-added ready-to-assemble furniture manufacturer. The people and processes that we employ to bring these products to market are the best in the business." Consumers Digest defines a Best Buy as a product that offers the most value for a given amount of money. It is a nationally available product that merits special attention from consumers based on its combination of performance, ease-of-use, features, durability, warranty, efficiency, styling, and maintenance and servicing requirements. The Heritage Pine Swing Out Office Armoire is a versatile office system that closes into a 27" X 41" footprint. When open, it is a fully functioning home office with a keyboard and mouse shelf, ample work surface, CPU storage, work-in-process slots, an adjustable printer shelf and lots of storage for files and supplies. It is covered by Bush's 6-year warranty and has a suggested retail price of $399.99. The Jagger Comfort Zone™ Computer Cart is a compact computer station that moves easily about on casters. In addition to the retracting keyboard shelf and numerous drawers, shelves and storage areas, the unit has height-adjustable monitor and CPU shelves. "Bush proves that a computer workstation doesn't have to be expensive to be both functional and fashionable," says Consumers Digest. It carries a suggested retail price of $179.99 and a 6-year warranty. "At a time when more and more furniture is coming from China, it's gratifying to know that these two pieces, made right here in Jamestown, NY, are recognized as the best value in the marketplace," said Jim Schmidt, Vice President of Marketing and Merchandising at Bush industries. "They're great products." Bush Industries, Inc. is a leading global manufacturer of case goods and ready-to-assemble furniture for home and office, as well as a supplier of diverse surface technologies. The company is headquartered in Jamestown, New York, with manufacturing plants in New York State, Pennsylvania, Mexico, and Germany.
