CHICAGO — Gladiator GarageWorks, a division of Whirlpool Corp. and manufacturer of garage organizing products, recently revealed its new line of office furniture for large and small businesses.

The new office suite features an open design allowing for flexibility and adjustability in work area configurations, which the company says allows for greater collaboration among employees.

Products in the office series include a three-drawer filing cabinet, C-Leg work table and H-Leg work table with valet locker. Both tables can be adjusted to a variety of heights and countertops are available in bamboo and maple. Along with the debut of this new office furniture line, Gladiator introduced a new color option — Everest White — along with its traditional Hammered Granite style.

The new Gladiator office furniture suite was developed at the request of Whirlpool, which was looking for office furniture to maximize space and complement an open and contemporary floor plan, said Lee Utke, senior director global corporate real estate for Whirlpool in a statement. The new office suite is now being used in Whirlpool’s office space in Benton Harbor, MI, and Cleveland, TN. "We had confidence this product line could successfully address our office furniture requirements to create a new and exciting work environment," Utke added.

"When we learned there was still time to propose Gladiator brand as the provider of office furniture for the new buildings, the brand team rose to the challenge," said Tim Keaton, head of marketing for Gladiator brand in a statement. "We are proud to bring an innovative office furniture to Whirlpool that is flexible, complements current architectural designs and can stand the test of time."
