Roomservice by CORT celebrates their 25th anniversary with RESI 09 sponsorship
Submitted by Laura Shepherd on 26/08/2009 - Senior Marketing Manager
For the past 25 years, Roomservice by CORT has been helping landlords, tenants and relocating professionals turn their houses into homes by having the furniture that best suits them and their lifestyle. As the residential sector begins rebuilding the market - the theme of RESI 09 - the values of choice, style, quality and flexibility that are represented by furniture rental will be more important than ever before.
Roger Hollis, Managing Director of Roomservice by CORT, comments: "To be celebrating our 25th birthday is a testament to not only the fantastic team at Roomservice by CORT, but also the quality of the service we offer and the growing popularity of furniture rental.
"We realise that a 25th anniversary is supposed to be silver, but we thought we'd go a bit better and our platinum sponsorship of RESI 09 demonstrates the continued confidence we have in the sector."
Roomservice was founded in Chessington in 1984 and throughout that time has developed a real understanding of what is required by both landlords, tenants and the relocation industry. In 2008 Roomservice was purchased by CORT - a US company that is part of Berkshire Hathaway, Warren Buffet's investment vehicle - to form Roomservice by CORT, a company that has gone from strength to strength.
Roger Hollis continues: "Being part of CORT and Berkshire Hathaway has allowed us to develop even further and offer products and services that are only possible with the backing of a major international organisation.
"These are exciting times for both Roomservice by CORT and the furniture rental market in general and we're looking forward to helping even more landlords and tenants get the solution they need. Here's to the next 25 years."
