Burgess Celebrate 55 Years

BCFA Members celebrate their 55th birthday

Burgess Furniture were the very first European manufacturers of the aluminium stacking banquet chair, and with a manufacturing heritage of nearly 70 years, we are the market leaders for conference and banqueting furniture around the world.

The Company, now run by Jeremy Burgess, was started in 1946 with a bicycle handlebar, when Gerald Burgess, Jeremy’s Father
founded the GB Cycle Company. Spotting a growth opportunity, he soon steered the company towards the burgeoning contract furniture market, adapting the bending, welding and aluminium finishing expertise of the company to the design and manufacture
of quality conference and banqueting furniture.

To this day, our banquet and conference chairs and tables are still designed and manufactured on-site in our factory in South-West London, and sold both in the UK and exported all over the world.
