More than just a supplier, Groupe Focus is a vital business partner for its customers who rely on their expertise for practical key end solutions for their office needs—solutions that offers a tangible impact on the quality of life of employees and partners alike. Many clients say Groupe Focus has drastically increased the sense of commitment by creating stimulating environments.
Clients don’t come to Groupe Focus simply for its chairs, desks, and furnishing. They are looking for ways to attract and retain the leading talent in whatever their field; to produce a continuity of brand from Vancouver to St. John’s and into the U.S., to visually present their success, competencies, and mission to whomever walks through their doors.
Groupe Focus has distinguished itself through ultra-sleek modern and quality products alongside innovative services. It ensures that your work spaces live up to their full potential through strategic layouts and a proactive team of dependable and talented experts. Their unrivaled sense of communication has underpinned the company’s reputation for over 25 years.
Groupe Focus employees also benefit from the company’s philosophy, and are also provided with a stimulating work environment focused on their well-being. With a team of 135 professionals, these dedicated employees are committed to the success of its clients, and aim to support that through work environments that are as ergonomic as they are chic, thanks to a partnership with Teknion. Located in Varennes, Quebec City, Montreal and Boisbriand, Groupe Focus is constantly on the lookout for new trends and future prospects, providing a unique vision and approach in the world of office design
“To provide sound advice in the field of office furniture, you need to be well informed about trends,” Stephane Lemieux, President and Partner. “Products are evolving very quickly and our staff progresses with it. We serve clients across the country, to present the same image and same services across the country. We support them to maintain the exemplary standards they have set and support them in the realization of their projects or simply to put them in current trends.”
“We know our clients want to attract and retain top talent, as well as have some kind of equity in to their standards and credibility into what they do day-to-day,” adds Anthony Simon, Vice-President and Partner. “We bring that to the table.”
Groupe Focus services work to ensure clients can harness the full potential of your workspaces, through a proactive team of reliable and versatile experts whose unparalleled communication.
“We take over the project as soon as the client has leased a space,” says Simon. Clients are able to visualize their ideas from the onset through plans, elevations and 3D drawings, through to detailed presentations, in order to perfectly execute their vision.
“Our software is second-to-none,” says Lemieux. “And we are able to bring your virtual model to life. In addition to being able to visualize the aesthetic choices required, our clients work with our experts to establish a solution.”
As an extra touch, Groupe Focus can also design and install moveable walls, another contributing factor in the company winning the silver medal in the “PWC Emerging Medal Winners” competition in the Entrepreneurial Succession category. “The moveable walls bring a whole lot of flexibility to our clientele and a lot of glamour of look, way nicer than gyprock,” jokes Simon.
Lemieux and Simon recognize their clients’ commitment to responsible environmental consideration. Groupe Focus is the only company of its kind to offer services to match this commitment and offer a recycling service for clients which includes the collection of packaging materials from customers following installation, transportation of recyclable materials, and cardboard, metal plastic, wood and furniture sorting. Groupe Focus is also able to contribute to obtaining certain LEED Credits on request, a major and attractive benefit to companies both financially and socially.
“Our services will get more complex as our clients’ needs get more complex,” says Simon. “We are here to support them, and we are constantly looking for ways to do that because when they look good, we look good.”
