The CTF Difference
CTF was founded by Fred Durnford and Geoff Warr, after they faced substantial lead time delays for technical furniture when delivering a fast track control room project for one of the World’s leading real estate developers.
Realizing that the nature of business in the region didn’t fit with the typical 8 -10 week lead time for quality technical furniture and consoles, they decided to set up a state of the art in-country manufacturing facility in Dubai Investment Park.
Supply chain disruptions as a result of Covid 19 has meant that these lead times have increased for foreign consoles not reduced and then the integrator has to assemble the product themselves which didn’t seem like a premier service.
Having local manufacturing for the region led to a significant reduction the carbon footprint, distance travelled and time taken to deliver control room projects in the Middle East.
The range of consoles started with the MKI which was quickly superseded by the MKII and then the MKIII. 2020 saw the rebranding from IGW to Connected Technical Furniture and a new range of consoles unveiled, the U A and E Class of consoles.
