David Asselin, as one of the founding Partners of Advanced Business Interiors, clearly understood the role of environmental guardianship and, within a few years of the company’s establishment, launched ABI’s Remanufacturing Division.

During ABI’s infancy, Dave held the position of Vice President, Operations where his experience garnered at Grand and Toy as Warehouse Manager, Sales Representative and General Manager Calgary Branch and in Sales with Office Equipment Inc., admirably prepared him for his current career.

In his present role as Senior Vice President of Advanced Business Interiors, the Remanufacturing Division, Rental and Storage, and the ABI Kingston Branch fall under his direct leadership.
