John Burns and Terry Armstrong

New furniture division for leading technology firm

Tuesday, February 25, 2020

Leading North East technology solutions provider, Diamond Group has expanded with a new division that will see jobs created and a 20% increase in turnover to the company’s bottom line.


The creation of the new division means that Diamond’s customers will be able to purchase high quality, affordable office furniture alongside IT support, telecoms, document management and ‘people services’.


The move is a strategic one; Diamond can now support a wealth of new customers who are now able to find almost every office-related service they require, in one place.


John Burns, managing director of Diamond said: “I am delighted and excited by this new opportunity. Diamond is going through a period of growth and having already brought onboard new staff in 2018, we are expecting up to four further additions this year. The availability of Terry Armstrong (previously a Director at furniture fit out company The Holsta Group) to head up the furniture side of the business was an opportunity too good to miss and he joins Diamond as Head of Furniture.


It made total sense for us as a business, to develop our current furniture offering. It supports our existing ethos of helping our customers to transform, grow and prosper – we are providing yet another solution to their businesses’ needs from one trusted supplier.”


Terry said: “I have worked in partnership with Diamond for a number of years now, so while Holsta going into receivership was a difficult time for me personally, the opportunity that this presents is very exciting. The furniture and seating are a very good fit for Diamond, slotting in neatly with all the products and services that the company already offers. I’m honoured to be a part of this new chapter.”


Based in Team Valley, Diamond Group offers a holistic approach to promote transformation, growth and prosperity for businesses in the North East and beyond. The company focuses on people, process and technology to add value to its clients’ businesses, adapting the service provided as their needs evolve.
