About Us

Jack C. Smith became a partner in an independent manufacturer’s rep firm in 1968, and then founded his own firm in 1972. He immediately established a strong foundation for the business by representing some of the contract furniture industries’ leading manufacturers. Jack’s direction for business then, as it is today, is to offer our manufacturers penetration into the A & D market, the corporate end-user market, and the bridge the coverage gap between the contract furniture dealer, and the commercial office products dealer.

Greg Smith joined his father in business in 1981, and is Principal of the firm today. Greg continues to provide our manufacturers and customers the level of performance that they have come to expect since 1968.
