    About Virco...

    Virco is 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 830 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 their 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. These include the ergonomically contoured Metaphor®, Telos®, ZUMA®, ZUMAfrd™ and I.Q.® classroom furniture collections, as well as all-new Civitas™ chairs and stools; TEXT® tables and desks; the generously proportioned Sage™ Series; durable, supportive Ph.D.® task chairs; Parameter® desks and workstations; and the wide-ranging Plateau® Series. Incidentally, our I.Q. collection was honored with a 2002 Best of NeoCon® Gold Award for design excellence at America's most prestigious contract furniture trade show, while our Plateau Library & Technology products received a Best of NeoCon® Silver Award the following year. In June of 2004, our diverse ZUMA family of classroom furniture products earned a coveted Best of NeoCon Editors' Choice Award. And most recently, our highly sustainable ZUMAfrd™ line won a Best of NeoCon 2005 Silver Award and a 2006 ADEX® Platinum Award.

    Virco Stewardship: An Ongoing Commitment

    As Virco enters its 61st year, our wide-ranging Stewardship initiative continues to move forward. From popular new product introductions to industry-leading recycling efforts, Virco Stewardship encompasses a vast array of endeavors.

    Virco Stewardship initiative can trace its origins to February of 1950, when we began working with America’s schools as a newly established company. Although terms like “sustainability” and “sustainable business practices” weren’t commonly used back then, they accurately describe the vision that inspired Virco’s founder, Julian Virtue, to develop long-lasting classroom furniture. As a result of our enduring commitment to product quality and customer service, Virco has grown from a small southern California business with a single customer into the country’s largest manufacturer and supplier of furniture for the K-12 market.

    Another pivotal year in our Stewardship initiative’s history was 1989. That’s when our manufacturing facility in Conway, Arkansas, started its recycling and resource recovery program. Beginning with hydraulic oil, office paper and scrap metal, Virco’s corporate wide recycling efforts now include more than 40 items, ranging from plastics and wood dust to cell phones and computer hardware. Over the years, we’ve recycled more than 326,000,000 pounds of materials, and we’re still looking for new ways to remove even more items from our waste stream.

    The success of our recycling activities led to the development of Virco’s “Cash for Cardboard” program in 1993. Through this community service initiative, we recycle cardboard for 35 schools in 7 districts near our Conway facility; we also build recycling bins for the schools to collect their cardboard. After Virco picks up their cardboard for processing, the proceeds are returned to the schools; to date, we’ve helped these schools earn more than $100,000 through recycling.

    In 1994, we took another step forward by becoming a partner in the US Environmental Protection Agency’s WasteWise Program, which was founded to help businesses, government agencies and other organizations throughout the country evaluate and attain their recycling goals; for instance, by providing a Climate Profile, which informatively illustrates the recycling accomplishments of WasteWise partners. Nine years later, in 2003, our partnership entered a new phase when Virco was selected as one of three charter members of the WasteWise Hall of Fame.

    Virco’s commitment to sustainability through recycling is mirrored in our recent new product introductions. Leading-edge furniture lines such as ZUMA®, ZUMAfrd™ and I.Q.® have received five coveted Best of NeoCon® Awards at America’s premier contract furniture trade show. We’re continually looking for new ways to incorporate sustainable design elements – including recycled and recyclable materials, ergonomic benefits and superior service life – into Virco furniture for schools, colleges, and other environments. In fact, our new Telos® and ZUMAfrd™ collections feature components made from flame-proof, colorfast, scratchresistant – and environmentally responsible – Fortified Recycled Wood™.

    In 2005, ZUMA and ZUMAfrd became the first classroom furniture product lines from any manufacturer to earn GREENGUARD® indoor air quality certification through the Greenguard for Children and Schools program. And thanks to subsequent collaboration between Virco and Greenguard, hundreds of additional Virco classroom furniture models have earned this important certification. We’re proud to offer you these lowemitting products – identified in this catalog with Virco’s Greenguard certified logo – and we’re delighted that other classroom furniture manufacturers have also begun working with Greenguard.

    As the manufacturer of the first classroom furniture to earn Greenguard® Children & Schools certification, Virco supports the Collaborative for High Performance Schools (CHPS). The CHPS Criteria, which enable the design of high performance schools, were developed initially for California and have been adapted by Washington, New York, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Maine, New Hampshire, and Rhode Island, with other states on the way Virco is proud to be a member of CHPS.

    In 2006, Virco introduced the classroom furniture industry’s first Take- Back program, which gives schools the ability to recycle furniture that’s been withdrawn from service rather than sending it to a landfill. Through our Take-Back program, Virco accepts plastic chair shells, laminated wood work surfaces and compression-molded hard plastic seats, backs and work surfaces – regardless of manufacturer – for recycling from qualifying schools, districts, colleges and universities. We can also help them find local metal recyclers to dispose of steel frames from furniture that’s no longer in use.
