FreeAxez College Scholarship

For Architects, Engineers and Technology Students

Free College Scholarship


We are happy to announce the first annual FreeAxez College Scholarship. Every day we help architects and facility managers (at companies like Google or Netflix) and engineers (at places like Yale, Stanford and MIT) create an adaptable workspace using Gridd® raised floors. We are dedicated to bringing technological solutions to the workplace, and we have designed this scholarship to award a student whose essay shows an understanding and appreciation for the type of work we do.

The 2020 deadline will be August 1, 2020.

The winner will receive $2,500 toward educational expenses.

What our clients say

“FreeAxez paid for itself before we moved in. We had to add one new row of desks, which required us to completely reconfigure 3 days prior to completion.”

Letter from the CEO

Our top priority at FreeAxez is and has always been our customers. For over 25 years, we have had the pleasure of helping our clients reach levels of productivity that they had not thought possible- proving the value and longevity of our product time and time again. 

When we entered the industry, Gridd revolutionized the way businesses thought about wire management and adaptive cabling distribution. Buildings needed to modernize but had no way of coagulating all of their technology and devices into a single unified system. Gridd provides a solution that is not only effective, but also incredibly flexible. In today’s society, modernization describes constant change in addition to technological advancement, making the adaptability of a workplace crucial. With Gridd, businesses can easily reconfigure and rearrange their offices as much as they want. Our design cuts down the cost and time of this process to a degree that has never been seen before. Companies are now able to implement major changes to their environment without hindering employees and breaking budgets, opening the doors to a whole new level of productivity.

As a company, we aim to be as adaptable and cooperative as possible. Much like the flexible design of our product, our staff puts a great deal of effort into addressing the unique needs of every individual client. We make sure to do absolutely everything we can to achieve the results you are looking for, every step of the way. Even after the initial installation, FreeAxez always stays in contact as an advisor to guide clients through the process of maintaining and utilizing our product. Our relationships never end with a purchase.
