Spotlight on AIS

Spotlight on one of our favorite manufacturers:


180 office opened our doors eleven years ago with AIS as our primary partner. AIS has the ability to manufacture high quality office furniture at a mid market price. This really challenges other manufacturers.Their employees believe office furniture is not always a serious matter. In fact, they believe it can be fun. It’s more about having a happy mindset and loving what you do.They listen to their customers needs and can make quick changes at the customer's request. This attitude and the dedication AIS has towards their work is what leads them to customer satisfaction and success.


AIS believes strongly in taking care of our environment. They work hard to eliminate waste from the environment and are big on recycling. Some great examples of this...The ANEW program, in this program they help clients repurpose old or unwanted furniture. Even more impressive, they have won the coveted Shingo prize for Lean manufacturing. As stated by The Shingo Instiute “The Shingo Prize is the world’s highest standard for operational excellence.”


AIS was established in 1989 by Bruce Platzman and Arthur Maxwell. What started as a clone manufacturer has grown to a complete line offering unique and award winning systems, benching, casegoods, seating and now tables and soft seating. From then to now...AIS has relocated to one, state of the art facility, in Leominster MA. They have used their hard work and cutting edge manufacturing to get them to where they are today. 180 is proud to work with AIS. Contact us and let us find the AIS option that works for you!
