Herman Miller, the global leader in furniture design, sustainability and inclusivity is equally committed to driving this critical movement forward. We all share a common vision of growth, inclusion, diversity, equality and excellence," said Marcelo Reggiardo, founding principal of Alianza.
"Changes to the marketplace have created an opportunity for LJ Duffy and Alianza to combine forces and thereby create an alternative source to the marketplace that features a unique business approach and an unparalleled level of service. LJ Duffy has always recognized Herman Miller as an industry leader. We have successfully deployed complex projects with both Alianza and the New York metro Herman Miller team.
