CFAS has become a leading light of information, and has always been at the forefront of innovation.

Alan Boyle, Director

CFAS is proud to be a central hub that provides a valued and impartial service to both trade and non-trade Associates. It was founded in 1987 from a vision to provide advisory services to the commercial furniture trade – assisting Manufacturers, Dealers and Service Providers.

When developing our services, it became apparent from our associates that a regular publication was required to provide them the opportunity to promote their products and services to interested parties within their sector.

With five publications annually, the CFAS Journal and Mini Journal provide impartial, engaging and thought provoking articles,
product releases and industry news. Our Journals spotlight the commercial furniture industry, and the challenges and changes affecting our sector. Articles in our Journals inform and promote Associates to thousands of subscribed end-users, and also include seasonal showcases, annual industry events, and pertinent editorials.

The CFAS Website

Our website provides the resources to reach a vast audience, gaining complete product range exposure and enabling you to target warm opportunities.

Each of our Associates are invited to upload an online product catalogue. This acts as a Search Engine promoting your business, enabling the right customers to find you – reducing wasted time and enabling higher sales conversion rates.

Front page banners are a fast and effective way of creating brand recognition, enabling you to raise the awareness of your product or service to every visitor to the CFAS website.

Additional Services

CFAS can offer a full package, or Associates can cherry-pick the services they require to help them grow. Options include the creation of marketing design, graphics design, printing, and of course the direct mail out. Direct mail supports other marketing efforts by merging traditional and new technology, ensuring a cohesive marketing campaign and creating brand awareness across every medium.
