Teknion was founded 35 years ago with a single product and a singular vision. The product was T/O/S. The vision was Saul Feldberg’s. A businessman of rare acumen, he saw that the world was changing as rapidly as technology was advancing, including the nature of work and the form and function of the working environment. Saul saw an opportunity and established Teknion. Teknion began as an unproven venture with an uncharted future. It became a company that could respond quickly, adapting to the evolving demands of a technology-enabled workplace. In 1983, David Feldberg joined and in 1994 he stepped into the position of company President and CEO.
Under his astute leadership Teknion began to form ties with the world’s leading architects and designers and win major projects with both Fortune 500 companies, and the rising stars of Silicon Valley. Teknion is now an international company with a worldwide network of offices, showrooms and dealers. Yet, we remain a company with a youthful entrepreneurial spirit, privately held by a Canadian family whose roots in the furniture industry run deep. The story of Teknion is one of growth and innovation. Saul Feldberg’s vision is still very much alive in our corporate values and in our culture. We remain a company defined by design – as a mindset, as a process and as a tool for innovation and positive change. It is the very essence of what we do.
