Architectural Systems, Inc.
Architectural Systems, Inc is recognized in the industry as the pre-eminent international distributor and marketer of architectural materials.
Founded in 1990 by Nancy Jackson, President and Ron Jackson, C.E.O, ASI began as a sales and marketing group to secure architectural specifications as a manufacturer's representative. The company quickly found a niche distributing products directly, and began working with factories globally to market their materials throughout North America. In turn, ASI's own brand-name products were created. Today, the company's products are confidently specified by leading design firms and installed around the world in landmark retail, entertainment, hospitality, corporate, healthcare, education, and institutional projects.
Not only does ASI offer the most innovative and distinctive collection of interior finishing products--the company also delivers creative solutions for design industry professionals. Clients return to ASI again and again for its extensive product expertise, professionalism, commitment to service, and collective eye for what's next!
Innovative problem solving: if it doesn't exist, ASI creates it.
Specifically, ASI develops fresh, innovative materials solutions for commercial projects. After consulting with clients, ASI recommends and sources the right materials for a project. For unique applications, where no off-the-shelf solution exists, ASI will develop custom materials to meet design criteria.
Additionally, the ASI staff provides full support throughout every phase of a project, from budget pricing to technical data, supplying specification, maintenance, installation and warranties for all ASI branded products.

The 5,000-square-foot ASI showroom in New York City's Chelsea Design Center is a constant source of inspiration and ideas for the design professional.

All ASI information resources- showroom, binder, e-newsletter, website, product catalogs and specifications-are organized according to these five categories.
