Unisource partnered with FDH Aero, a leading aerospace component manufacturer, to consolidate their two facilities into one streamlined office space in Commerce, California. The goal of this project was to enable FDH Aero employees to quickly meet customer needs by simplifying procurement and empowering the business operations of its customers with easy access to the expanded product offering.
The design focus was to provide FDH Aero’s new 14,000 sq. ft. office space with a rightsized furniture footprint. Before the consolidation, employees were scattered throughout their old office space, resulting in too much downtime going from one department to the next. The new office space provides closer proximity to all departments, creating a cohesive workspace environment for teams to ideate, collaborate and share business insights to manage their orders, after-sales services, customer relations, training services, and customer-facing needs across the entire company.
The project, located in Commerce, CA, involved the consolidation of two facilities into one 14,000-square-foot space. The new facility was designed to accommodate the needs of FDH Aero's employees and customers, with a focus on providing easy access to the expanded product offerings and simplifying procurement processes.
Unisource Solutions worked closely with FDH Aero to determine the necessary furniture solutions that would support their business objectives while optimizing the available space. The new office features 53 open-area benching workstations on the first floor, 37 open-area benching workstations on the second floor, six pieces of private office furniture on the first floor, and 13 private office furniture on the second floor. The project also includes two conference rooms, two respite rooms, 115 task seating, an employee break room, and reception desk and lobby seating.
One of the special features of the new office space is the open area benching workstations that are designed to promote collaboration and facilitate communication between employees. The new furniture layout helps to reduce the distance between employees, promoting greater efficiency, and a more cohesive work environment
The project was completed in January 2023 and executed in several phases, including:
The project was completed in January 2023 and has enabled FDH Aero to achieve its goals of consolidation and rightsizing.

Unisource Solutions is proud to have partnered with FDH Aero on this project and looks forward to supporting its future growth and success.
