CHICAGO — The innovative organizational style of Gladiator® brand can no longer be contained to the garage. Today, the leader in garage organization introduced its new concept office suite that is a perfect fit for businesses large or small. The suite boasts an open design outfitted with versatile bamboo worktops, and was created to inspire greater collaboration among coworkers.

Gladiator brand was challenged by its parent company Whirlpool Corporation to create a suite of office products that would inspire collaboration, spur productivity, withstand repetitive use and adapt to changing needs of the user. From this, the new office furniture suite was born and is now being used in Whirlpool Corporation's new office space in both Benton Harbor, Mich. and Cleveland, Tenn.

"We had confidence this product line could successfully address our office furniture requirements to create a new and exciting work environment."

In the end, the series created a space that inspires and positions employees in an environment that will encourages creativity and collaboration. At the same time it reinforces a connection between Gladiator brand and Whirlpool Corporation employees.

"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. "We are proud to bring an innovative office furniture to Whirlpool Corporation that is flexible, complements current architectural designs and can stand the test of time."

The new concept office suite speaks to the brand's promise of reclaiming space once and for all and is being introduced as a part of its continued effort to meet the diverse organizational needs both in the home and office space.
