In the early 60’s Charles “Gil” Gilfillan knew that computers were the next frontier. He teamed with his manufacturer and installer to bring some of the first access floors to manage wiring and air in “computer rooms” for Sperry Univac and IBM to the area. He soon started the first factory authorized full service access floor company.

In the late 70’s with the advent of the Microsoft Desktop, access floor moved from the computer room into the office space for the massive amounts of power, voice, and data wiring.

During the 80’s and 90’s the industry and ARI grew with supporting technology for Business, Pharmaceuticals, Manufacturing, Government, and emerging Tech companies.

In the late 90’s, Under Floor Air Distribution (UFAD) for the work environment was reintroduced to the United States. ARI and Tate were instrumental in the first UFAD projects in the country, Cendant Mortgage and The Keystone Building, totaling 1.5 million square feet.

In the new millennium, UFAD became mainstream in corporate headquarter buildings such as SAP America, Bank of America, Goldman Sachs, Canon, and CSC and Data Center Colocation flourished.

In 2019 ARI celebrated our 50th year and Tate has successfully introduced integrated finishes through their StoneWorks plant, plank wood, and porcelain applications across the country.
