Back in 1905, Smith System built heaters for one-room schools. And then water fountains – and lavatory systems. It was a simple mission – keep kids warm, hydrated and clean, so they could focus on learning. The more we worked for schools, the more we saw an ever-evolving environment that needed a furniture maker to nurture the change. So, we stepped in. We believe that every student and teacher deserves the best possible space to inspire learning, and that’s what led us to what we are today: A company designed to deliver on the needs of education better than anyone else in the industry.
