Founded in 1988 by Paul, John and Richard Maas. Prior to this, and dating back to 1965, their architectural firm had many churches, schools, corporations and restaurants as clients. Working with these clients, the partners realized that regardless of the client’s size or budget, they all had one common goal; make the best and most flexible use of their valuable floor space. To help their clients meet this goal, they designed and patented several lines of unique portable room dividers. A new concept in providing truly versatile use of floor space was born and acceptance of this new concept in dividing space was both immediate and widespread.
