US office furniture industry index on the rise

Monday 12 August 2013

The Michael A. Dunlap & Associates 37th quarterly survey of the office furniture industry completed in July shows its activity level is up significantly from the last survey in April.
“I think that the industry is doing better than any time since the 2008-2009 recession. What we described as flat three months ago is now better described as climbing,” said Dunlap, whose industry consulting business is based in Holland. “This is good news. The overall index is the highest since October 2011 and is well above the survey average.”
The July overall survey index is 55.07, which is up significantly from April, when it was 52.84. The highest recorded index was 59.72 in July 2005; the lowest was 41.45 in April 2009. The average overall index is 54.30 since the survey started in August 2004.
The Dunlap survey reflects the current business activity level of the office furniture industry and its suppliers in 10 key business activities, with respondents rating each on a scale of 1 to 10. The higher the score, the better that segment of the industry is doing. An index score of 50 means there has been no change in that quarter.
