Furnishing San Diego Businesses for More Than 40 Years!
Bernie Arenson was a powerhouse in the San Diego community. A leader and benefactor of many causes, he founded Arenson Office Furniture in 1975 with a clear and concise goal – To provide high- quality office furniture at “everyday low discount prices”, within a context of exceptional customer service. Forty-two years later, his son, Perry Arenson, remains committed to his father’s goal. While the office furniture industry has changed significantly in the past four decades, Arenson Office Furniture, under Perry’s leadership, has adapted to these many industry changes, while maintaining its focus on building long-term relationships with its customers. Trust, accountability, communication, and innovation – these are the pillars on which customer relationships are built and maintained.
HOW WE ARE DIFFERENT – Arenson Office Furniture views its customers as partners in the design and purchasing process, working hard to understand the unique needs of each of its clients, and offering up solutions and recommendations tailored to these needs. Arenson Office Furniture brings your vision to life. To that end, we offer the following:
- A large furniture showroom, where you can touch, feel, and visualize what is possible
- In-house delivery and installation experts; we do not sub-contract out these critical services
- Business partnerships with a broad range of vendors and manufacturers; we are not affiliated with only one or two major suppliers, so our only goal is to find you exactly what you need, and to do so in the most cost-effective manner
Tom Sanchez – Delivery/Installation Team
You have done your homework, browsed our website, visited our showroom or worked with our exceptional furniture experts. Now it’s time for delivery and installation and you are greeted by “Mr. Satisfaction.” Tom is part of our fantastic delivery/installation team and he takes pride in the furniture that he delivers and installs.
Tom will always engage in cheerful conversation and make sure you are completely satisfied with your new furniture. Tom has 10 years of dedicated service with us.
Don’t forget to ask him about his beloved “Niners.”
Daniel Acosta – Delivery/Installation Team Lead
Daniel is one of the hardest working and dedicated people we have ever known. His problem solving skills are incredible. He has seen every imaginable challenge and is prepared for whatever you can throw at him.
Daniel brings 31 years of service and experience with Arenson. He comes from a long family lineage, as his father, David, worked for us for over 20 years.
Daniel may be quiet, but he will always bring a smile and more knowledge than anyone in the industry.
Fernando Lopez – Delivery/InstallationTeam
Although finishing up his “rookie” season with Arenson, Fernando brings a wealth of experience in the office furniture industry.
Fernando operates our “assembly and production line” in our warehouse and makes sure that your order is assembled correctly and to specification.
By his count, he is close to 10,000 chairs built in his career! Always pleasant and willing to go the extra mile, Fernando is an early riser and is always first through the door.
Elizabeth Salazar – Office Manager
Okay, we’ll admit it…Elizabeth keeps things running smoothly at all hours of the day.
Elizabeth constantly works with all of the staff to ensure we stay focused and on course. She makes sure the orders are correct, shipped according to schedule, and coordinates installations with all of our valued clients.
Elizabeth also makes sure we celebrate everyone’s birthday; that the plants are watered and our desks stay neat and tidy.
Just look at her smile…She loves her job and all of the people she talks to!
Carol Guinn – Financial and Accounting
Carol is our chief “bean counter”. Nothing gets past her. Going on 14 years with us, Carol has been devoted to the art of “balancing the books”.
She is insightful and has opinions on many interesting subjects. Carol enjoys bike riding and playing basketball.
Carol works with our many vendors and ensures that all of the “I’s” are dotted and the “t’s” are crossed and that the numbers all add up.
Perry Arenson – “Jack of All Trades” – President
From sweeping the floors, vacuuming the carpets and unloading trucks, he has done it all!
For over 40 years, Perry has been grinding away in this business. Given that his father, Bernie, started the company in 1975, he had little choice but to grow up surrounded by the office furniture business.
His knowledge, accommodating personality, and gentle humor are readily available. He is always eager to dispense pearls of wisdom to one and all while ensuring customers get exactly what they need every time.
