Corporate interiors specialist, 1080, has completed the first phase of a major investment strategy in its extensive showrooms at Dargan Road, Belfast after its recent merger with Alpha Office Furniture - a leading provider of office furniture and design solutions.

1080 is the design, project and fit-out division of 'The Alpha Group' which employs a total of 100 people across three locations; Belfast, Dublin and Glasgow, with 35 staff based at Dargan Road in Belfast. 1080 offers clients a bespoke service in the design, supply, installation and full project management of business interiors. The Alpha Group is currently turning over £14m per annum – a figure which is set to grow significantly following these recent company developments.

The newly refurbished two storey 10,000 ft display facility showcases an extensive range of products including desking, benching, task seating, contract flooring and storage along with specialist postural products, the latest trends in break out areas and AV technology solutions.

With over 25 years industry experience combined with a wide product offering to suit all budgets, the company has built a solid foundation for the future, now benefitting from pooled supplier partnerships, integrated specialist skills and long standing client relationships.

Paul Black - CEO of the Alpha Group - commented on the company's recent merger and new showroom facility,

"Work environments today need to be functional but also dynamic – the merger represents a coming together of two experts in this field. Over the last 25 years plus we have transformed the business interiors of some of the UK and Ireland's leading companies and with a new amalgamated team we hope to bring our cutting edge knowledge and design experience to an even wider array of projects both here and across the globe."

John Roddy - Design Director of 1080 added,

"It's not just about designing contemporary business interiors or providing a commercial proposal that meets a client's budget, the real excitement comes when you're able to truly improve a business' performance through workplace optimisation. Small differences can add enormous and real value; we always challenge requirements, seek better solutions and maintain a 'can do' attitude"
