IPM Selects Office Furniture Resources (OFR) to Furnish Corporate Office Expansion


When IPM expanded the workspace at our Milwaukee, WI, headquarters to incorporate our team from Exact Metrology: A Division of In-Place Machining Company into our 3811 N. Holton Street location, we selected OFR to furnish the new second floor office space.

OFR, headquartered in Milwaukee, WI, is a leader in office furniture solutions in the Midwest. A full-service woman owned business, OFR provides quality new, used, and refurbished office furniture. Their ReThink decommission team works across the country with the repurposing goal to greatly reduce the use of landfill when companies leave an office space. The OFR ReThink process uses their wholesale network, charitable donations partner, and retail stores to repurpose more than 1,500 trailer loads of furniture each year.


The selection by IPM to purchase reused and refurbished cubicles, desk chairs, training tables, and stacking chairs for the newly expanded work area diverted and estimated 10,925 lbs of waste from landfill. The total rate of landfill diversion by percentage reused vs new materials of their purchase was 83%.  Reusing office furniture, whether in original condition or refurbished, reduces landfill use, energy use, resource use, and carbon emissions.

IPM is Dedicated to Hiring Veterans Across the U.S.


Veterans bring a wealth of skills and experiences that contribute, and greatly enhance, our workplace culture, fostering an environment where all individuals can thrive. By prioritizing the recruitment of veterans, we not only honor their service but also tap into a talent pool characterized by discipline, adaptability, and a strong sense of duty. This approach not only strengthens our workforce but also enhances our company’s impact by providing meaningful employment opportunities to those who have served our country. Furthermore, supporting veterans’ transition into civilian roles promotes economic empowerment and social cohesion within the communities where we operate. In essence, hiring veterans isn’t just about filling roles; it’s about embodying our commitment and making a positive difference in the lives of those who have sacrificed for our nation.

IPM is proud to make hiring veterans a priority across the U.S. In the state of Virginia, IPM is a certified company in the Virginia Values Veterans V3 Program. As a certified company in the V3 Program, IPM has demonstrated to the Commonwealth that we value veterans and have made a public commitment to hire veterans into our workforce.

At IPM, volunteering and supporting charities are integral components of our mission to make a positive impact beyond our business operations.

IPM Helps “The Gathering” Feed the Hungry
