Emil Shamash

Emil Shamash, president of D&E, began in office furniture in the late 1960’s.Originally forming a partnership with his brother, David, they began selling and producing furniture from their home in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. As a relentless entrepreneur, Shamash helped to pioneer and shape an industry in its infancy. His business strategy evolved from simply manufacturing office furniture into several vertically integrated businesses supporting the broad manufacturing base within this same industry. Today, Shamash focuses his attention on D&E, operating from 100,000sq.ft. of manufacturing space. In the production of its quality laminate office furniture, D&E employs assembly line techniques uniquely applying them to tailor each product to specific client needs. The result is client-focused solutions in a quality product delivered at an affordable price, each and every time. Shamash’s commitment to innovation and flexibility ensure this.
