Forbes Group

Forbes Group is a leading British manufacturer and supplier of hospitality, conference and banquet furnishings to leading venues worldwide. We provide quality fabrics, furniture and equipment which allows our customers to trust our value and service whether you are a small independent outlet or an international chain.

We have been supplying textiles from our Leominster factory since the 1980’s. In 1994, we diversified into manufacturing banquet furniture. This division became Forbes Furniture, specialising in lightweight but robust tables and aluminium stacking chairs. Forbes Group was formed in 2009 from the merger of the textile business with Forbes Furniture, a logical step given their shared markets. The choice of the Forbes Group name for the merged companies reflects the growth of our products and services. Textiles and furniture are dispatched to destinations from Russia to Tahiti from our purpose built factory at Leominster in Herefordshire, England.

We expanded our offices from the United Kingdom into Benelux, France and Germany, then Italy and Spain. Today we supply hotels in more than 35 countries, as well as the armed forces, universities, sports venues, industrial companies, charities and other organisations. We supply prominent names in the hospitality business, including Gordon Ramsay London and New York, Hôtel de Crillon in Paris, The Ritz in Madrid, the Royal Parc, Evian (former meeting place of the G7 leaders), Hilton Hotels, Marriott Hotels, InterContinental Hotels, the Bora Bora Lagoon Hotel in Tahiti and NATO in Kabul.

With over three decades in the sector, we have acquired an understanding of our clients’ needs from the multiple perspectives – including budgets, storage, laundering, health and safety and environmental compliance. We remain as close to our customers as ever, and as flexible to their requirements. Our ambition is to treat all our customers with the same courtesy and attention to detail. We specialise in three main categories; Fabrics, Furniture and Equipment.

Textile Products – We offer a wide range of fabrics and products to match every interior and budget, including table covers, chair covers, restaurant table skirting and conference cloths – standard or bespoke, and with optional logos. All are easy-care and hard-wearing.

Furniture – Lightweight aluminium folding tables enhance speed of set-up, save staff time, are easily handled for health and safety, practical to store and are 97% recyclable. The Buffet-Rite table top can be accompanied by a sleek Silcra stretch cover and turns a table into a temporary hot or cold serving station. We also supply stacking chairs, portable stages and portable dance floors.

Equipment – In addition to our furniture ranges, we are the European distributor for market-leading products from Forbes Industries US. Such items are the birdcage luggage carts made from solid brass, lightweight housekeeping trolleys and a range of stylish mobile bars, lecterns, easels, menu and luggage stands.
