COMPANY OVERVIEW

With over 60 years of experience AMBICO has become a world-wide leader in the specialized door industry. Known for pushing the envelope we, at all times, keep top of mind that every building entrance generates an impression and conveys a message about what may be found within. Our products provide our clients with the ability to define that impression and create their own message in ways they may think is unavailable or impossible.

Whether an opening is commissioned for a modern company headquarters or a century old heritage building, AMBICO guarantees exceptional door and frame assemblies that combine unique design with function and serviceability. In other words, beauty does not have to take aback seat to technical considerations. A truly handsome door can also be blast-resistant, bullet-resistant, or meet rigorous acoustic requirements. If you can imagine it, we will strive to build it.

AMBICO products are serviced by an expert team of engineers and sales personnel. Ourselected network of manufacturer's representatives and independent distributors enhances ourability to provide dedicated client service across North America and throughout the world.

We provide Decorative products that include recessed panel, brass clad, bronze clad, as well as stainless steel doors, frames and windows. Alternatively, AMBICO also provides an exceptional line of engineered door and frame products that includes acoustic wood, acoustic steel, bullet resistant steel, blast resistant, lead lined, radio frequency, oversized and tornado resistant.
