Founded in 1998 by Managing Partner Tony Hill and Partner Hans Edwards, Edwards & Hill Office Furniture began with an emphasis on multimedia – producing training videos, organizing business conventions, and creating marketing campaigns. A few years later, changes in market demand brought about more of an emphasis on the office furniture arm of the company. While our multimedia division continues to be an important aspect of the work that we do, it was in office furniture supply that we truly found our niche.
Edwards & Hill is a leading office furniture supply and installation firm, able to install one workstation with its applicable furnishings and accessories, yet equally adept at installing hundreds of workstations, multiple offices, chairs, filing cabinets, and more and performing office relocation and reconfiguration services.
We’ve earned a stellar reputation over our 21+ years in the business and we have what it takes to create the perfect office environment that has been tailored to your unique needs. We serve clients in Maryland, Washington, D.C., Virginia, Pennsylvania and Missouri (we also have a St. Louis office) as well as across the US. No matter what type of facility you manage or the industry you’re in, we can provide the right solutions for your needs.
