At Virco, we’re committed to providing the best selection of Equipment for Educators™.
As America’s leading manufacturer and supplier of furniture and equipment for K-12 schools, Virco employs approximately 700 people nationwide. Our 560,000 square-foot Torrance, California headquarters features a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility, as does our Conway, Arkansas location, which has approximately 1,750,000 square feet of operational space. Large distribution centers in Torrance and Conway facilitate the quick, efficient shipment of Virco products.
From our earliest days, product development has been a key to Virco′s growth. After getting started in 1950 as a furniture supplier for Los Angeles-area schools, the addition of folding chairs, folding tables and other items soon helped expand our sales to a broadening customer base. More recently, we′ve worked with accomplished designers – like Peter Glass, Bob Mills and Richard Holbrook – to develop products for emerging applications.
Because customer service is our top priority, Virco maintains a nationwide direct sales team and supports a growing dealer network. Our complete spectrum of support services include: three tiers of product delivery; installation and repair; and the comprehensive PlanSCAPE® service, which helps educational administrators successfully manage large-scale furniture and equipment purchases while saving time and money – and avoiding stress – in the process. In addition, Virco now has a dynamic Take-Back program, enabling schools to recycle their out-of-service furniture components rather than sending these items to a landfill.
Virco's primary customer base is Education including; preschool - 12th Grade; junior and community colleges; four-year colleges and universities; trade, technical and vocational schools. In addtion, Virco is a leading furniture and equipment supplier for convention centers and arenas; banquet and meeting facilities; federal, state, county and municipal goverment facilities; places of worship.
