DHAKA, Bangladesh - Office furniture giant Steelcase will open its first dealer showroom in Bangladesh on August 9.
The showroom, to be located in Bangladesh capital Dhaka, will strengthen Steelcase's presence in the Asia-Pacific region, the company said in a press release.
The news comes soon after Ikea announced it would open a 150-employee furniture shop in India, which neighbors Bangladesh. Both the Steelcase showroom and Ikea shop will open August 9.
This is Steelcase's second showroom in the South Asia region. It opened another in Sri Lanka earlier in the year.
The upcoming showroom will open doors to local and international businesses in Bangladesh, and provide them with comprehensive workplace research, latest trends and a thorough knowledge quotient from all around the globe, the press release added.
“Bangladesh is one of the fast-growing markets in Asia and we are eagerly waiting to launch the brand here," said Steelcase Asia Pacific President Uli Gwinner. "I’m confident that Steelcase can help businesses in Bangladesh boost the performance of its people and organizations.”
