Do well planned and designed offices contribute to higher employee productivity and happiness?

Inscape Fourth Quarter Sales Fell 16.7%
IN MANUFACTURERS  Thursday Jun 25, 2015

Steelcase First Quarter Revenues Declined 2.4%
IN MANUFACTURERS  Wednesday Jun 24, 2015 
In the Americas, first quarter orders increased 8 percent compared to the prior year and continued to include a significant amount of orders with requested delivery dates more than 90 days from the order date.

Herman Miller Reports Fourth Quarter Sales Climbed 13%
IN MANUFACTURERS  Wednesday Jun 24, 2015 
On an organic basis, which adjusts for acquisitions, divestitures, and foreign currency translation, sales in the fourth quarter increased 3.9% from the same quarter last fiscal year.

Kewaunee Scientific Fourth Quarter Sales Climbed 11.9%
IN MANUFACTURERS  Tuesday Jun 23, 2015 
Record incoming orders in the fourth quarter increased the backlog of domestic orders, which more than offset a decline in the backlog of international orders that resulted from the shipment of several large orders during the year.
