KENNESAW, Ga., May 21 /PRNewswire/ -- In the latest major step for an entrepreneur just out of his teens, Sean Belnick's e-commerce company BizChair.com has announced it will become the majority tenant of Herman Miller's former Atlanta-area facility located in Canton, GA, occupying more than 225,000 square feet of the 327,000 sq. ft. building with the option to expand into the additional space. BizChair.com's two facilities now total over 325,000 sq. ft.
"We're taking over the space to increase our office space and warehouse capacity," said BizChair.com founder Sean Belnick. "It's an attractive corporate campus environment that will allow us ample room to grow, both in the warehouse and in the new offices."
BizChair.com plans to double its call center and IT department while adding additional accounting and other administrative staff and managers. The new headquarters will have more than 16,000 sq. ft. of office space. BizChair.com went online in 2001, operated solely by Belnick with advice from his stepfather Gary Glazer, who was in the office furniture business.
"We never thought we would grow this quickly," said Belnick. "Five years ago we operated the business out of our home. Just 2 1/2 years ago we moved into a 40,000 square foot warehouse. In the past year, we've expanded it to 100,000 square feet and now this move."
"We expect to take occupancy of the new building on June 1," Belnick said. "We now plan to import desks, conference tables, and computer furniture among other things. With this additional warehouse space, our possibilities for growth are almost endless. We have a bright future ahead of us."
This is the latest development in the remarkable business career of Sean Belnick, now a student at the Goizueta Business School at Emory University. In middle school, he made thousands selling Pokemon cards online as well as designing web sites for friends, family, and local companies. Belnick founded BizChair.com in August of 2001. The company began by selling office chairs and eventually began importing their own office chairs from China. BizChair.com currently has over 75 employees and expects revenues of $38,000,000 to $42,000,000 in 2007. In 2006, BizChair.com was listed as #438 on INC Magazine's list of the "Top 500 Fastest Growing Privately Held Companies."
BizChair.com, headquartered in Kennesaw, GA, sells and direct ships a variety of furniture products. The company was founded in 2001 and sells office chairs, stack chairs, folding chairs, and recliners. In addition the company sells a full range of office furniture, home furniture, school furniture and medical equipment totaling over 25,000 products.

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lea...

Just over a week ago I received a long and loud sustained applause for a presentation I delivered at this year’s Cloud Expo in Santa Clara.

Over the next few days I had many more meaningful conversations and was not only happy with the results but also learned a few new things. Here is everything I learned in those three days distilled into three short points.

What are the new priorities for the connected business? First: businesses need to think differently about the types of connections they will need to make – these span well beyond the traditional app to app into more modern forms of integration including SaaS integrations, mobile integrations, APIs, device integration and Big Data integration. It’s important these are unified together vs. doing them all piecemeal. Second, these types of connections need to be simple to design, adapt and configure...

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, will discuss the strategies that exist to extend intelligence directly to IoT devices and sensors, freeing them from the constraints of ...

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...
