Our Story

Our Story

Since 1991, Office Environments has been creating great spaces for employees to work, learn, and heal.

Originally founded in 1991 as O&M Health Systems in Birmingham, Alabama, our company initially focused on healthcare furniture solutions from Herman Miller to serve the expanding medical industry in the region.

In 2002, John Owens and Ken Martin saw the growing need for a commercial furniture dealer to serve the booming business market. O&M Health Systems obtained Herman Miller Workplace Resource, along with the commercial distributorship rights for Herman Miller in Alabama and northwest Florida. With an expanded product offering and geography, the name changed to Office Environments, Inc. and offices were added in Huntsville, Pensacola, Tallahassee, and Gainesville.

As we’ve expanded and grown as a company, other partners joined and some have since retired, but one thing that’s never changed is our dedication to our healthcare customers. However, since 2002, much of our growth has occurred in the commercial, education, and government markets. We’ve continued to expand our footprint with a new office in Mobile, Alabama.

Much of our success and growth is due to our experienced team and dedication to our customers. The commitment of our team and our unmatched customer service has allowed us to become the largest and highest-rated furniture dealer in our territory. Many of our employees have been with us from the beginning. Others have joined and stayed with us over the years because of our excellent working environment and family-like atmosphere. We truly care for our employees, and one of the ways we show that is our newly renovated Birmingham showroom. Our old space was outdated and filled with rows of cubicles and ill-lit rooms. Now our space is a place where people want to work because they have the tools and settings to make them feel better, so they can work better. With ergonomic seating, sit-to-stand workstations, and a variety of settings to choose from throughout the day, our employees get the satisfaction they need and the corporate environment that shows them we care.

And, we continue to grow and work hard every day to earn the opportunity to provide more organizations with the spaces and tools they need to thrive. Let us show you how we can help reach your goals and objectives.
