Furniture startup gets $1.5 million in investment capital

ZEELAND, Mich. -- Quint Workspaces LLC, formed in 2020 by office furniture industry veteran Don Goeman, has secured $1.5 million in capital from investors around Michigan and plans to use the early-stage funding to support new product development, expand delivery services to major markets, and enhance e-commerce capabilities.

Goeman, the founder and CEO of Quint Workspaces, told that “This round of funding moves Quint fully into launch and accessibility mode allowing us to quickly deliver affordable, high-quality products to our new and existing customers.”

Goeman said Quint Workspaces intends to open a new office and production facility in West Michigan later this year.

“The value of our products and manufacturing approach is already being validated by our customers, and our business model is proving to be scalable and ready to expand throughout the country,” he said.

Goeman previously worked for 40 years at the former Herman Miller Inc., now MillerKnoll Inc. He served as executive vice president of research, design, and development from 2005 to 2019 before forming Quint Workspaces.

Investors in the early-stage capital round include Grand Rapids-based Michigan Capital Network, Invest Detroit Ventures, Michigan Rise in East Lansing, and Detroit-based Invest Michigan, plus individual investors.

Quint Workspaces specializes in ergonomic chairs, desks, storage components, and privacy screens specifically designed for a home office as more people today work from home, as well as for small to mid-sized companies. The company previously raised more than $1 million in startup seed funding in late 2020.
