Our Story

Over 25 years of industry experience

Educan School Furniture, Ltd. is a Canadian manufacturer located in Abbotsford, BC. Since 1995, our company has worked directly with school boards and purchasers to provide quality products with full range custom capabilities. By skipping the middleman distributor, we can deliver fast and cost effective solutions to all your classroom furniture needs. 

In March 2020, Educan came under new management and ownership. Together, our team of professionals is committed to uphold the company’s legacy by providing furniture “made right” — products that are durable, environmentally responsible, and locally manufactured.

What “made right” means to us

Local advantage

Chosing a local manufacturer in Canada has some real benefits:

    • Pre-assembled delivery: All our furniture arrives pre-assembled so you can focus on putting it to work in the classroom.
    • Shorter lead times: Our location means that we can deliver local orders faster than our competitors while also supporting the economy and keeping jobs in BC.
    • Faster repairs: replacement parts and assistance are just a phone call away.
    • Accessible customer service: Our team has been working with school districts in BC and Alberta for over 25 years, so we are well-positioned to answer your questions and suggest innovative solutions.

Built-to-last

Educan furniture is designed to handle classroom wear and tear:

    • Mig-welded frames: Mig welding is done by hand to ensure a full weld throughout the frame.
    • Bull-nosed edge sealant: Our 6-coat Edulast varathane lacquer is durable and easy to repair if damaged.
    • Reinforced table tops: Our typical tables have a 3-inch skirt underneath. This prevents the table from bowing over time and guarantees the legs are securely fastened.

Environmentally responsible

Environmental responsibility is another cornerstone of the “made right” brand. All our table tops are GREENGUARD certified, which means they are free of more than 10,000 volatile organic chemicals (VOCs). At the end of the manufacturing process, unused materials and waste are recycled whenever possible. 

    • GREENGUARD certification:  The certification applies for laminate and medium-density fiberboard (MDF) table tops.
    • Powder-coated paint finish: Powder coating is more environmentallly friendly than the more commonly-used chrome plating because it does not contain volatile organic compounds and requires less electricity to do the same job. 
    • Edulast edge sealant: Using a varithane lacquer for edge sealing reduces the amount of plastic used in the manufacturing process. As a bonus, it’s also easy to repair if damaged.
