At the time of its foundation in 1954, Amisco was already dedicated to the institutional market as its main fi eld of business was school furnishings made of steel tube. Quickly, the company added woodworking and upholstery to its expertise.  Over time, Amisco diversified its product offer to serve hospitality clients, and kept providing furniture for the institutional market.

Amisco designs and produces furniture in its two factories located in Québec, Canada. The main one is specialized in steel transformation, and the second manufactures upholstered and wood components.

Now over 60 years old, Amisco takes great pride in providing contract grade furniture to diversified clients as the US Army, Holiday Inn, Windham, Best Western, Comfort Inn, and  many restaurants of all sizes.

Raw material transformation: the heart of our expertise

 

 

 

Steel transformation has been in Amisco’s DNA since its foundation. Our L’Islet team uses first quality North American steel tubes and sheets. The raw material is cut, perforated, folded, formed and welded to become sturdy and trendy furniture pieces. Electrostatic lead-free powder paint is meticulously applied on every product, providing a durable and easy to clean finish. Over the years, Amisco diversified its expertise by adding upholstery component manufacturing and wood transformation and finishing.

Our Saint-Pascal team carefully crafts our upholstered seats and backrests. The factory exclusively uses high performance materials, like high-density polyurethane foam and robust plywood structures. This construction guaranties unmatched comfort and durability for many years of intensive use.

Our Saint-Pascal woodworkers attentively fabricate our wood components, demonstrating the birch, walnut and ash all the respect these noble materials deserve. The wood is harvested in North American forests, certifying responsible use and preservation of the resource. Our woodworkers put a lot of effort in enhancing the natural wood characteristics and giving a flawless, resistant and durable finish to every piece.
