Burgess Furniture is celebrating 55 years in business this year. With a manufacturing heritage of nearly 70 years, the company is a market leader for conference and banqueting furniture around the world.

The company, now run by Jeremy Burgess, was started in 1946 with a bicycle handlebar, when Gerald Burgess, Jeremy’s father, founded the GB Cycle Company. The company then moved into furniture design, adapting its bending, welding and aluminium finishing expertise to the design and manufacture of quality contract furniture.

To this day, Burgess Furniture’s banquet and conference chairs and tables are designed and manufactured on site in its South-west London factory, which are then sold in the UK and exported all over the world.
