Hufcor is U.S. owned and operated and is the world's leading manufacturer of operable partitions, accordion folding doors and glass wall partitions. Also referred to as "airwalls," Hufcor Moveable wall systems and room dividers deliver unlimited space division and acoustical separation.
The Hufcor history of quality, reliability, innovation and service to the industry is the reason architects, contractors and engineers routinely specify Hufcor operable partitions.
Hufcor has licensees and distributors located throughout the world. Due to differences in the availability of various components, not every product is made exactly the same in every country nor is every product available in each country. However, each product is manufactured to Hufcor's exacting quality standards. Projects requiring partitions that exceed a licensee's capabilities are manufactured and shipped from the U.S.
