Transwall is a well-established developer and manufacturer of moveable floor-to-ceiling and architectural wall systems. Founded in 1963 in the western suburbs of Philadelphia, the brand has positioned itself firmly in the relocatable wall segment of the contract interiors industry. Noted for its high quality products and superior services, Transwall has carved out a strong place for itself in eastern markets. It is also a long-standing and trusted supplier to the federal government with installations throughout the US and the world.
In 1998, Transwall was purchased by Kimball International. As a result of a major corporate restructuring plan, Kimball decided to exit the business in 2005. Being aware of the potential for a strong independent manufacturer of this type, the management and previous owners of Transwall purchased the company back from Kimball in October of 2005.
The timing of the acquisition proved to be quite sound. The marketplace interests were just starting to come together around green architecture through use of modular walls and construction, addressing flexible architecture, and growing desires for increased daylight in office spaces through the use of glass. Transwall’s products were, and continue to be positioned at the intersection of these forces. As an independent organization, it maintains a client focus which has proven difficult for many of its larger, corporately-owned competitors to achieve or maintain. The company enjoys a strong financial position while continuing to reinvest in product development and infrastructure.
