Exhibitor Profile



Bruce Platzman, AIS CEO/President: Never has there been a more exciting time for AIS. The company has experienced tremendous growth, exceeding the industry average. We are gaining more business every day by staying true to our value philosophies and providing customers with a top notch product that is environmentally sensitive and meets customer demands. Our organization is passionate about what we do best, and that is working diligently to meet the needs of our customers in every way possible. You can call AIS the little company that could. And did. You can call AIS the little company that could. And did. We began as Affordable Interior Systems in 1990. In the beginning, we were strictly a supplier of remanufactured office workstations. Our goal was simple. We wanted to meet the need for a high-quality, affordable alternative to the leading brands. Demand for our low-cost approach was high. It wasnt long before we had expanded our operation and were handling all of the steps in the remanufacturing process. As the market evolved, AIS evolved with it. By 1996 we had shifted our focus to the production of our own brand of workstations. Fueled by demand for high-value office furniture solutions, we quickly became one of the top manufacturers of new products for the New England market. By staying lean and profitable, by continuing to serve businesses in fresh new ways, AIS exceeded our customers expectations for value even as we defied the expectations of our competitors. Between 2000 and 2007 alone, our sales grew from 20 million to over 100 million__a pace nearly 400 percent ahead of the industry. That placed AIS among the top seven systems furniture companies by volume in the US. In 2005, we shed the long form name, Affordable Interior Systems and re-emerged as AIS. The goal of the name change was to re-brand the company as a manufacturer of new and proprietary systems. Our success has enabled us to offer companies large and small a unique combination of superior design for a reduced cost. By exploring new ways to help our customers work more efficiently and more profitably, by staying smart and strong, we continue to grow. Yet at our heart we remain the little company that can. And does. We rise to high standards. By setting our own. We rise to high standards. By setting our own. From the very start, AIS has taken a fresh, inventive approach to the office furniture industry. Rather than simply copying or applying conventional wisdom, we sought and developed our own more-efficient ways to manufacture and deliver high-quality products. We have worked to our own high standards. And by doing so, we have streamlined production and design while improving the results of both. Thats why our operation works more efficiently yet produces a higher caliber product than our larger, more-traditional competitors. Because of our unique manufacturing philosophies, AIS has continued to grow, constantly achieving, always offering a level of products and support few other companies can match. Our approach has earned us 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. But even more, we are pleased with these achievements we make on behalf of our customers, including: 90 of our product line is now available as a 10-day quick ship, making our lead time the shortest in the industry. 98.7 of our orders ship when we say theyll ship complete and on-time. We have the lowest number of freight claim incidents by volume in the industry. With AIS, our high standards give you unrivaled results, including: high-quality products, reliable delivery and service, a strong dealer network, and__the bottom line__prices that are up to 25 lower than the prices of competing products. We build them to last. We design them to be flexible. We build them to last. We design them to be flexible. Before we designed better office systems, AIS built a better company.
