We are AIS. Our day job is designing and manufacturing office furniture. We’ve been doing it for more than 30 years and we’re pretty good at it. We’re also pretty good at acting during a crisis. After 9/11, we produced hundreds of workstations for the Pentagon, helping our government quickly get back to work.
In 2020 and 2021, we collaborated with volunteer sewers to fight the spread of COVID-19. (We still made office furniture though!) AIS worked with sewers around the country to provide a superior facemask for first responders and those at risk. Our AIS sewers at our factory in Massachusetts, combined with our team of nationwide Rosies, were the heartbeat of the project.
Working with the United Way of North Central Massachusetts, AIS donated over 600,000 facemasks through this not-for-profit initiative by collaborating with sewers who care and partnering with companies who wanted to give back.
