TransAmerican Office Furniture Inc. has opened an office in the Butz Corporate Center in downtown Allentown.

“This is the action place,” said Gene Kriebel, vice president of sales for the company.

He said with the number of new office buildings being built in the city’s core and the new companies moving into the area, it was important for the company to have an office in the area.

Kriebel said that while the company has been doing business in the Lehigh Valley for some time, it hasn’t had much of a physical presence.

“We wanted to demonstrate our level of commitment to the Lehigh Valley, to have set hours where people could come in and see and touch the furniture,” he said.

The officer furniture retailer represents more than 200 commercial furniture manufacturers and has locations in Philadelphia and Reading.

One of its previous sales includes the furniture being used in the Lehigh County Courthouse, Allentown.

The office will be staffed by sales representative Laurie Sullivan. Her experience includes government, education and commercial interior account management.

The office is at 840 W. Hamilton St., Suite 520. A grand opening is scheduled for Sept. 25. For more information, call 610-972-3231.
