After the war domestic furniture was produced until the early 1960’s when Derek and his brother Roger entered the business and the Company then started to manufacture office furniture. At this point the domestic side was gradually phased out, in order to concentrate on office furniture – particularly seating.
On 21st April 1967 the Company changed its name to William Vere Ltd. The ensuing years saw the Company grow until it had overtaken its competitors to become one of the UK’s largest manufacturers of office seating. This position has been maintained, while also developing a range of desking, tables and cabinet furniture.
In recognition of the popularity of the brand name, the trading name of the Company was changed on 2nd August 1990 from William Vere Ltd to VERCO Office Furniture Ltd.
Now, not only is VERCO one of the largest manufacturers of office seating in the UK, but VERCO designed chairs have been produced in France, Australia and the United States. All deliveries to the UK mainland are made by VERCO’s own fleet of vehicles to a network of regional distributors, who have been specially selected because of their experience and ability to provide local stockholding and service.
