Featured Manufacturer: AIS
Established in 1990, Affordable Interior Systems (AIS) maintains a simple goal: Meeting the demand for a high-quality, affordable alternative to leading office furnishing brands. As the market has evolved, AIS has evolved with it. Fueled by demand for high-value office furniture solutions, AIS quickly became one of the top manufacturers of new products for the New England market.
From the very start, AIS has taken a fresh, inventive approach to the office furniture industry. Rather than simply copying or applying conventional wisdom, they've sought and developed more-efficient ways to manufacture and deliver high-quality products. This approach has earned AIS high praise, including the 2003 Shingo Prize for Excellence, and recognition by Industry Week magazine as one of the top 25 manufacturing plants in North America.
Taking AIS to the next level, AIS Calibrate was introduced in early 2011. This newest line of freestanding components and accessories is designed to construct open plan desking and benching solutions as well as private office environments. Consider Calibrate an Ă  la carte offering with flexible upscale components you can mix and match to create a truly customizable office space.
Today, all AIS systems are GREENGUARD® certified and contain between 40% and 55% recycled materials by weight. The prestigious GREENGUARD Certification ensures that products have been tested to the stringent standards of the GREENGUARD Environmental Institute, and are verified to have low chemical emissions.
In May 2010, AIS became the first systems manufacturer to achieve CarbonNeutral® certification, strengthening our sustainability commitment by neutralizing unavoidable greenhouse gases produced in the manufacturing process.
