Meet Ray Ann Phillips of Office Cubicles

Today we’d like to introduce you to Ray Ann Phillips.

Thanks for sharing your story with us Ray Ann. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
Office Cubicles was started in 2000 when I lost my son due to a motorcycle accident! I was mad at my employer for not giving me condolences or enough time off to mourn! I quit my job and formed Office Cubicles Inc.

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
It has definitely not been easy for a Black Female to run a Systems Furniture Dealership! I have had to compete against large manufacturers in a white male dominated business! Word of mouth and great services go a long way! The largest setback was during the war when Bush was President! We have prevailed!

Alright – so let’s talk business. Tell us about Office cubicles – what should we know?
Since 2000, Office Cubicles has been providing companies in Houston, and throughout the United States complete furniture sales, installations, and servicing! Office Cubicles is a true multi-line dealer offering over 50 different lines of factory direct office and panel workstations.

Any shoutouts? Who else deserves credit in this story – who has played a meaningful role?
I have had great manufacturers such as The Marvel Group, Ncomm, Ofs, Ofm, Mogen Furniture and the list goes on!
