Box Clever Storage Solutions, formed in May 2007, provides a comprehensive, flexible and simple storage solution for a range of clients. Both business and domestic customers use a range of facilities provided by the company including mobile and static storage solutions, caravan storage and van hire.
J. N. Rusticus was launched in September 2016, and is the exciting new venture for Joe Nicholson.
Joe, who was already working as business manager for Billingham-based storage company Box Clever, took an apprenticeship route following A Levels rather than join many of his friends at university. Joe’s practical experience of running a business had helped him realise his entrepreneurial aspirations. Joe’s business idea had to involve logistics and fulfilment as it’s an area he’s been involved in most of his life with his dad, David Nicholson.
J. N. Rusticus sources and sells unique, ethically sourced home and office furniture from around the world. Joe travelled to both India and China to seek high quality products including tables, chairs, benches, cabinets and cupboards, handmade entirely from reclaimed boat wood.
The name J.N. Rusticus was chosen because it means rustic and rural in Latin. Joe feels that reflects the ethos of the business as a supplier of beautiful, ethically sourced furniture from some incredibly talented craftspeople.
Joe will continue to seek furniture from a range of designers and manufacturers from across the world, with a visit planned to Indonesia in 2017.
