About the business:
In 1986, Patricia Holland Branch was working as an interior designer for an office furniture store. As the company began to focus more on selling rather than designing furniture, Branch decided it was time to look elsewhere. After failing to find a job that matched her aspirations, Branch became an independent designer. In 1987, after landing four clients, Branch opened her first office.
Facilities Connection focuses on furniture management and interior design services, but also provides other services. The company offers office furniture project and logistics management for commercial, industrial and governmental offices.
