Fellowes Brands Acquires Office Wellness Vendor

Office products vendor Fellowes Brands has taken another major step into the workplace well-being category and is expanding its portfolio.


The group has acquired ESI Ergonomic Solutions, a manufacturer of monitor arms, height adjustable tables, sit-stand workstations, lighting, and other ergonomic and health-related items.

Fellowes said the acquisition represented the group’s commitment to further strengthening its position in the growing office wellness space.  


Earlier this year, Fellowes launched the Lotus Sit-Stand Workstation which was recognized with an Industrial Designers Society of America Award for its innovative design. In July, the company took an equity position in Posturite, a UK-based Ergonomic Furniture Company.


“ESI is a high-growth company serving the increasingly health conscious professional,” commented Fellowes Brands CEO John Fellowes.


He added: “ESI principally serves the contract furniture market which nicely complements Fellowes’ strength in the business products channel.”


ESI will continue to operate from Phoenix, Arizona under the leadership of Mark Rhoades, who joined as President in April 2016.


“We look forward to the continued leverage of ESI’s outstanding independent rep sales force and strong dealer relationships,” said Rhoades. - (OPI)
