For over a century, the Buckinghamshire-based company have held their own at the very forefront of British manufacturing.
Over the past several years, the furniture industry has seen a wealth of hip, new startups bursting onto the scene, each one promising to change the game with new groundbreaking ideas and never-before-seen designs.
Verco is not one of those companies.
They’ve seen trends come and they’ve seen trends go. They’ve seen new designers and manufacturers arrive with big, bold promises to shake things up, and they’ve seen those very same designers and manufacturers disappear again just as quickly.
Through it all, they’ve continued to build an ever-growing, ever-loyal customer base by focussing on three key essentials:
- Sustainable, high-standard materials
- Expert craftsmanship
- Beautiful design
Over 100-years of dedication to the craft of quality furniture-making
Located deep in the heart of the Chiltern Hills, the company was first formed way back in 1912 by craftsman Chair Maker William Vere, whose popular Windsor Chairs were carved from locally-sourced timber.
With a few name changes along the way, William Vere & Co. continued to flourish, branching out into other forms of domestic furniture such as dining room suites and lounge sofas.
The brand even made it through World War II, supplying chairs to the British Armed Forces.
In the 1960s, the company began shifting towards the quality office furniture they’re known and respected for today, bringing the same levels of outstanding comfort and style from the home into the workplace.
The rest, as they say, is history.
Today, Verco’s long tenure and unbeatable track record of producing premium-grade seating, workstations and other office furniture have made them one of the UK’s leading manufacturers, with their products also proving popular across Europe and the United States.
