Advanced Office Environments Closing

After many years of success and carefully crafted connections with clients, Advanced Office Environments (AOE) is retiring their furniture dealership. During this wind down, AOE is committed to fulfilling all customer obligations for orders in production, but they will no longer accept new orders.

Penn’s long-term AOE account representative, Michele Eife and her team have accepted new positions with Cofco Group (Supplier # 49553), and will continue to represent the Kimball/National lines as well as dozens of additional open lines.

The Haworth dealer relationship is being determined and will be announced within the next several days.
