OUR HISTORY

  1. 1977A Company is Born

    Before Archmill House was established in 1993, the Principals were in the general contracting business, providing fit outs for retail and commercial spaces including pharmacies, sales offices and training centres. Given this background, Archmill had first-hand experience in dealing with millwork manufacturers and was very comfortable working with general contractors.

  2. 1993Became a Millwork Company

    Archmill House identified a niche, manufacturing quality architectural millwork in a timely manner for the commercial construction market. In addition to the core business, opportunities arose to design and manufacture kiosks for the airline and casino sectors with such clients as Air France and the Ontario Lotto and Gaming Corporation.

    The experience of manufacturing ‘repeatable’ projects proved to be successful and Archmill House saw the benefit of growing the standard and near standard product business.

  3. 2009Fire destroyed Building

    In 2009, after a devastating fire that totally destroyed our premises, Archmill House invested heavily in state-of- the- art manufacturing facilities to ensure that our millwork is always precision made, quality manufactured and delivered on time and on budget….guaranteed!

    Archmill House also started to add retail store fixtures to the sales mix…starting with LCBO. Since then Archmill has been involved in over 100 LCBO projects. In addition, Archmill has secured contracts to manufacture Loblaws PC Mobile phone displays, Sears store fixtures, Samsung displays, Hudson’s Bay and Tim Hortons.
