  • Who is Envirotech Office Systems? Incorporated in 1998. Grew out of an original alliance with CTI. Collectively, we have 30+ years of experience in the industry. Reference CTI because they may be positioned as competitors to us on some projects. Canada’s largest full-service dealership focusing on Pre-owned Grade “A” pre-Pre-Owned and remanufactured furniture Envirotech is a major player in the growing industry of Pre-Owned quality products. Some of today’s furniture recylers offer sophisticated manufacturing and distribution capabilities. Current figures indicate that recyclers account for almost 10% of business in the 13.6 billion dollar commercial furniture industry.

  • 75,000 square feet of storage facilities in the GTA to provide you immediate access to a broad variety of products Approximately $5 Million of Grade ‘A’ inventory is held in ready stock We have an extensive inventory of quality products in-stock at any given time: 1000 – 1500 work stations 500+ task chairs (typically Haworth, Herman Miller, Steelcase products). Typical cost of a high quality task chair is approximately $100.00. Good quality task chairs and filing is hard to find on the re-Pre-Owned market. Prices are being driven up by demand. 200+ Approximately 100 are 2H laterals and the balance are 4 – 5 H laterals. We typically look for Haworth or Steelcase filing. The Haworth 950 line is considered a superior line because of its radius edge design. Box/box/file pedestals are in high demand as well. Our supply of large inventories of high quality re-Pre-Owned products comes through Fortune 500 companies An extensive variety of new products is also available. We can access hundreds of new product lines through our existing suppliers and our CTI connection.

  •   Envirotech is networked with approximately 300 brokers of commercial furniture across North America. They have established businesses in the major urban centers of New York, California, Florida, Texas and others. This affords us immediate awareness of trends in the secondary market and information about product availability. Envirotech can act as the ‘eyes and ears’ for clients who are seeking a particular product on the market that they have been unable to buy. We can scout for it, put reserves on it for a client, arrange transport and install. High quality products become available from clients who are down sizing, changing existing furniture standards, divesting themselves of assets, merging, restructuring or going out of businesses. It is a normal part of the business cycle.  
  • AFFORDABLE CREATIVITY Remanufacturing allows you to exercise an affordable form of creative freedom Create the size and the finishes that you want Match your current furniture or create new standards
  • Envirotech is an industry leader in re-manufactured furnishings. This is evidenced by the fact that we have retained our own in-house manufacturing capabilities while many of our competitors rely upon outsourcing to resolve all of their remanufacturing requirements. The quality of product that Envirotech offers the market has steadily increased over the years. The client is receiving Grade ‘A’ products for value pricing. The client can upgrade to a premium product at an affordable price. We are raising the expectations of clients seeking pre-owned furniture. We have a deficiency rate of less than 1%. This is a higher rate of excellence than that typically provided by many manufacturers of new product. . We deliver exactly what the client asks for – and no less. This is very different than dealing with a pure broker who simply flips whole inventories of pre-owned products regardless of whether you need the whole lot, or whether all the products are in good condition.
  • Assessment of Grade ‘A’ Products Envirotech will visit on-site to verify the resale potential of products that are available for resale. Resale value is influenced by variables such as product quality, age, classic or non-classic design, colour, type of finishes etc. If these variables are undesirable, they will drive the price of the product down. Older systems furniture that is of a classic design and in good functional shape may be bought with the intention of refurbishing it. Refurbishing will increase the price of this product to the client because of the extra labour and materials. Assessment of Grade’B’ Products If a product is deemed to be of Grade ‘B’ quality, we would not buy it. We would contact individuals such as Ray Lockhart ( 905 602 1234) to provide the load-out service for the client. Ray works with a network of lower-end dealers who can sell the product to a lower segment of the re-Pre-Owned market. He may also choose to sell the product on consignment. Companies such as Ray’s may offer to split the profits with the client or simply clear the product out at no cost to the client.
  • Each year, U.S. businesses discard approximately 3 million tons of furniture (Environmental Protection Agency) incurring estimated disposal costs of $100 million dollars. Each piece of furniture then takes several hundred years to break down. As they break down, they emit methane gas which is the major contributor to the build up of greenhouse gases. One of the defined targets in the Kyoto Accord is to reduce the amount of greenhouse gases that are created from solid wastes. Manufacturing processes for new products is very energy intensive. The amount of labour and energy required to remanufacture an existing product is 85 – 90% less than that required to manufacture a new product. Using pre-Pre-Owned products is a wise environmental solution. A typical Grade ‘A’ furniture system has a life span of 15 – 20 years. Clients often turn them over before this due to changing styles, colour, cosmetic finishes and functionality. Classically designed Grade ‘A’ systems can continue to provide solid performance for an extended length of time – and can be cosmetically enhanced to give them a fresh face.
  • Sustainable Design Making a decision to buy re-Pre-Owned furniture sends a clear corporate message about your company’s commitment to conservation, waster management and wise asset management. Extends the life of products already in circulation Diverts Pre-Owned products from the solid waste stream Conserves our valuable resources of raw materials, labour and manufacturing energy Eco-efficiency – extracting the maximum productivity from resources with the minimum amount of waste or pollution
