At OMT-Veyhl, we’ve reduced creating custom office furniture to a science— literally. We’re able to compress what takes most firms months—going from napkin sketch to prototype—into just eight days.
Manufacturers and businesses don’t always have the luxury of time when it comes to upgrading and implementing custom office furniture. As the market evolves, businesses have to evolve with it or risk falling behind the competition.
When your standard products aren’t the right solution for the functional demands and aesthetic choices of your most important customers, you need a design and manufacturing partner to help you deliver custom products you can be proud of. These custom products are an essential part of the evolving market, and we’re committed to ensuring you have a helping hand in meeting the needs of your clients.

A major financial institution in New York approached an industry-leading, New-York-based furniture manufacturer with a unique and time-sensitive project. It wanted to upgrade its existing desking infrastructure to be height adjustable.
There was a catch, though: because the tabletops desks featured a unique power partition the firm had recently invested in and wanted to keep, there wasn’t an off-the-shelf solution that met their requirements.
The manufacturer was unable to work around the power partition within its normal product development cycle and it was running out of time.
Just as the project was beginning to feel undoable, it turned to OMT-Veyhl for assistance.
Having utilized us in the past, the manufacturer knew that we had unique manufacturing and design capabilities that could help with this project. So, we teamed with its designers and engineers to tackle the challenge.
From a napkin sketch to a working prototype, OMT-Veyhl helped the manufacturer get the job done in just eight days.
The firm selected a mounting bracket to be implemented with the existing partition, allowing it to connect to our height-adjustable table supports. The mounting bracket ended up being a scalable solution for the customer’s future needs and met the needs of several other products on the market.
So how did OMT-Veyhl do it?
When partnering with OEM’s, OMT-Veyhl has a structured procedure for developing innovative products that meet the client’s desires:
- Innovation, Research, and Development all happen under one roof, enabling rapid innovation to develop manufacturing-ready prototypes in record time.
- Quality and Testing continues throughout every phase of the manufacturing process. Virtually everything that can be automated is, using state of the art technology. Dual testing happens in-house and out-of-house to ensure high-standard quality.
- Manufacturing Technology is an aggressive part of the process to empower our skilled tradespeople to provide superior quality in the shortest possible time. We utilize computer-driven laser cutters, brake presses, robotic lasers, and more to meet aggressive deadlines.
- Powder Coating is run by skilled technicians. We offer more than 150 standard colors for optimal customization and also have a one-of-a-kind, custom-designed and fully-automated powder-coating line, which enables us to deliver the highest quality with near-zero minimum order quantity.
But the real secret to our success is our unprecedented customer service. We’re committed to integrating with you so our team and capabilities function as an extension of yours.
In the New York project, we were able to simplify the process by collaborating in every step of the design. We even sent a team to the N.Y. firm to take measurements and inspect the existing furniture ourselves.
