Perdue, Northeast Florida’s Steelcase office interiors dealer, is renovating its 13,000-square-foot, two-story showroom Downtown.
The updated showroom will remain at 5 W. Forsyth St., built in 1916 when the company was established.
It will showcase a technology-enabled workspace.
“Our designs help businesses make better long-term decisions with data-driven solutions, customer insights and the most advanced digital reporting tools,” Perdue President Vince McCormack said in a news release.
The new showroom will include concepts for reception areas, cafes, private offices, meeting spaces and general work areas.
Communications products from Crestron, Microsoft Teams, Zoom, Shure, QSC, Biamp, Philips, LG, PrimeView, ChannelSay Digital Signage, Huddly and other business technology manufacturers will be on display.
Phase Integration acquired
The parent company of Perdue, The Suddath Companies, announced it acquired commercial technology consulting and project management company Phase Integration.
Suddath said the acquisition will increase its capabilities in audiovisual solutions, structured cabling, lighting and control, sound masking and other workplace-related technology project management.
“The market is thirsty for smart, connected and technologically enabled workplaces,” said Mark Scullion, president of Suddath Workplace Solutions. “This acquisition will allow us to bring strategic value to our clients much earlier in the project life cycle to support their IT infrastructure and workplace technology needs.”
Phase Integration will integrate into Suddath’s Perdue locations in Jacksonville and Tallahassee.
