A Pensacola-based company, The Armored Frog, wants to put quality and craftsmanship back into furniture.

“We sell throughout the United States; we build here in Pensacola,” said The Armored Frog President and CEO Joe Sinkovich.

As a local, small Florida business, The Armored Frog received the Industry Recruitment Retention Expansion Fund grant, designed to help a small local business to succeed and expand.

Along with receiving the grant, The Armored Frog will be opening a new showroom in downtown Pensacola, and it is launching a new product line, The Valor Desk series. Until this line, the company had focused on one-of-a-kind, showcase pieces.

Clients across Northwest Florida and the United States have taken notice of The Armored Frog product.

“We don’t have any competition,” Sinkovich said. “Handcrafted furniture has gone away.”
