Our Company History and Culture.

man applying fabric to cubicle frameIn 1993, ROSI began out of Houston’s large demand for affordable office cubicles as companies were emerging from the nearly decade-long oil recession. There was a large inventory of used cubicles, but companies wanted and needed better than used. So, John Ofield put together a workshop with a highly skilled team that got to work redesigning and reimagining used Haworth cubicles. Today, ROSI (Recycled Office Systems, Inc.) continues to offer an affordable line of high-quality remanufactured office cubicles called REcube—built right here in Houston, Texas.

The Haworth Unigroup cubicle frame was chosen for remanufacturing due to the well-designed steel frames and durable craftsmanship that went into the original product. These indestructible cubicle frames withstand many years of use and reuse. In fact, the remanufactured product looks as polished and professional as new but costs an average of 40% less, so John and the team have been quite busy for nearly 25 years!

As customer demand grew, evolved and expanded, John realized his customers needed more than remanufactured cubicles. They also needed office chairs, reception furniture, filing cabinets, and EVERYTHING OFFICE.

So ROSI added more including:

  • New office furniture
  • Office furniture and cubicle rentals
  • Data cabling
  • Storage, moving, and liquidation services
  • Project management
  • 2D and 3D complimentary space plans

Unlike most office furniture companies that are strictly distributors for office furniture manufacturers, ROSI Office Systems is a hybrid. We manufacture our own line of remanufactured and new workstations and benching systems, while also representing other manufacturers that produce office furniture products for office environments. With this broad range of products plus ROSI’s space planning and design expertise, we provide the perfect balance that creates high performance workspaces. In-house manufacturing also enables ROSI to customize interior environments with limitless fabric or finish combinations.

The ROSI Culture. 

The ROSI culture is built around the process of continuous learning. We actively seek team members that are curious and energized by solving workspace problems and delivering exceptional results. We also focus on hiring an equal representation of millennials, Gen X’ers and baby boomers. These characteristics and age variances produce incredible ideas (and lively discussions) during our “culture club” meetings. The output of this type of culture is the constant development of intellectual capital that is an incredible resource for our clients.
Our passion is to create the perfect office environment for our clients We get excited when we transform interior spaces from private offices and a bull-pen to an area that includes zones for focus work, collaboration, learning and socializing. The application of these zones has proven time and again to drive business productivity and success.

Our passion is creating the perfect office environment.

For everything your company needs relating to the design and implementation of furnishing a highly-effective office space, our dedicated team excels at providing the right office furniture solution every time and helping you get it all done. In addition, our learning-based culture will continue to guide us to new possibilities that produce “high performance workspaces” for you.
