Allwest Furnishings Ltd. was founded in 1974 by George Smith, under Allwest Institutional Furnishings. Smith was working coat check at a hotel when his boss began asking him to collect tables and chairs for events. George started to learn about sourcing furniture and on his 41st birthday opened Allwest Institutional Furnishings with his wife.
Since then, Allwest has grown to be an industry leader in Western Canada. Customers have made Allwest their go to place for sourcing office furnishings, moveable walls and window coverings. Allwest proudly represents many major manufactures such as Teknion and Solarfective.
In the early 2000s, the company began operating under Allwest Commercial Furnishings and in 2012 the company was sold to Edmonton businessman, Colin Eicher. Then in 2017, Dr. W.A. Sam Shaw purchased the company and the name was changed once again to Allwest Furnishings Ltd. Under his leadership, Allwest has expanded its product line and services to effectively serve the healthcare, K-12, and residential sectors. Since 1974, Allwest has remained committed to designing workspaces that encourages efficiency, promotes wellness and inspires creativity. At Allwest, we change the way people work.
This includes supporting numerous charities and worthy causes, but also by being inclusive and caring enough to include developmentally challenged individuals as fellow staff members. We care about people and community.
