Steelcase Catalog in AggieBuy
Items displayed in the Steelcase punch-out catalog in AggieBuy are manufactured as they are ordered, and require three to six weeks for factory production and another one to two weeks for shipping, receiving and delivery to the end user. High end wood furnishings, many non-standard items, and expensive lounge seating may require as much as eight to ten weeks for manufacture and delivery. The design process for design projects can take from one to three weeks.
Please begin the procurement process early enough to allow time to fulfill your needs and meet your timelines. General timelines for Steelcase orders are as follows:
- 5-6 weeks: For chair orders and other freestanding type items.
- 8-10 weeks: For private office setups and modular workstations.
The Furniture Program maintains an in-stock furniture inventory, and this is a good option if you would like to see items before making a purchase. These items are available for quick delivery (1 - 5 days). Selection and finish choices are confined to the items available and the prices paid are identical to the same items available elsewhere in AggieBuy.
In-Stock furniture is displayed in the Furniture Program showroom on LaRue Road.
