Ace Office Furniture Houston was founded in 2008 by Ace A. Astala, a former President of the Board of Directors of the American School of Gas Measurement Technology, and his son Kevin Astala, who is a distinguished member of the Who’s Who organization. The company initially started with the purchase of a small amount of used furniture through an auction. However, after acquiring a larger quantity of used office furniture in 2015, Ace Astala formed Ace Office Furniture Houston LLC (AOF Houston) to sell used furniture to the public. Within a year, the company shifted its focus to sales of new office furniture, forming contractual arrangements with well-known vendors.
Over the years, Ace Office Furniture Houston has grown from a small, family-owned business to a full-service commercial office furniture store with a showroom sales force. They cater to the architecture and design (A&D) community, end-users, government institutions, and the education market. In 2019, the company received an A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau, further solidifying their reputation for quality and customer service.
