Foley Carrier Services provides compliance solutions for more than 35,000 motor carriers of all sizes, as a DOT compliance advisor, fuel tax and permitting services and a full range of services for truckers and their fleets. Located in a historical building in Hartford, CT, Foley Carrier wanted a high-tech system they called "urban chic."

John Watts Associates was up to the task. Our solution was to use Fluid Concepts for 200 Systems Furniture stations, and plug in an eclectic product mix such as Sit On It – Davis – Indiana – and Haworth to achieve the look and feel the end user and designer wanted. Foley Carrier Services is very satisfied with the result, as they get on with their business of providing motor carriers with the up-to-date information they need. You can see more images here.
