Founding CTF

About us

The Beginning

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.

The CTF Difference

After facing substantial lead time delays for technical furniture, Fred Durnford and Geoff Warr took action and founded a production facility of their own. Connected Technical Furniture (CTF) was born, rapidly became a leading force in the supply chain for custom control room fitouts for world leading brands.

One of the only specialised production facilities in the gulf, with esteemed in house designers and engineers, CTF occupied a void in the market to deliver the required products on time and locally made.

Imported consoles were hit with further supply chain disruptions following the pandemic, resulting in part order delivery and even self-assembly on arrival. These factors further bolstered CTF’s rise as the complete production infrastructure could be handled in house from the Dubai Investment Park location.
