Creative is a purveyor of business furnishings, collaborative technology, flooring systems and wall systems. Creative was founded in 1995. Today, they have locations in Ashland, Charlottesville and Chesapeake, and the company employs close to 100 people.
Creative goes beyond simply supplying furniture and AV equipment. The company integrates workplace interior and technology to achieve business results. Globalization, technological advances, environmental sensitivity and multigenerational workplaces have created an environment where “business as usual” is a death sentence. Creative helps organizations embrace change, and create spaces where technology and environment are developed in tandem in order to motivate, inspire and stimulate collaboration and innovation.
In 2007, Creative relocated their headquarters and distribution operations in an 88,000-square-foot facility in Hanover’s Northlake Business Park just off Interstate 95.
Hanover’s interstate access was one factor that led to the move. Downtown Richmond and Innsbrook are 15 minutes away, and there is great access to markets across the state and region.
The building was a big factor in the selection of this location, too. It had the square footage the company needed, the construction was impeccable, and the interior was unique with an open floor plan and exposed beams.
“You’re not going to find a place like this in the West End or Richmond or Henrico,” says Robert DeLille, CEO of Creative.
“The space is a great marketing tool. Our home in Hanover and the Northlake Business Park provides our customers and employees the quality environment they have come to expect.”
A small, personable county government also makes doing business in Hanover enjoyable. It's easy to get to know people, and staff members are readily available. "You can pick up the phone and say, 'I need some help!'" DeLille shares.
