Sustainability: Economic - Environment - Social
Compatico’s history is rooted in the story of sustainability and an environmentally friendly manufacturing process. We began as a company that supplied replacement parts and components for original equipment manufacturer’s products which extended the usable life of the product. Remanufacturer’s utilized Compatico parts to recycle and refurbish aging office systems.
Today, Compatico continues to supply replacement parts and, with the same commitment to protecting the environment, manufactures three full lines of new panel office systems.
Our management and staff are committed to and proud of our stewardship of materials and processes that are environmentally friendly. We feel a strong sense of social responsibility and the importance of employing sustainable business practices. We believe it is possible to protect our environment and its resources while enhancing the value of products to our customers.
