On a sad note…

On a  sad note, our co-founder Howard Lindsey passed away on 9th April 2014 at the age of 91.

Howard co founded Tessa in 1968 with his brother, the late Fred Lowen AM, after leaving FLER Furniture.

Howards career in the furniture industry spanned over thirty years working with FLER and subsequently TESSA in management and administration. His contribution to the establishment of Tessa as a national and global brand was immense until he decided to retire from the business in the 1980’s.

Howard was a caring man who took the time to get to know his colleagues and employees as people. He was still involved with Tessa as our landlord here at Bayswater and he always took an active interest in the ongoing development of our business.

He continued to be involved in the local community after his retirement as a very active member of the Bayswater Rotary Club.

Howard will be sadly missed by all at Tessa Furniture and his family and friends.
