For more than 60 years, the AMBICO team has been proud to design and manufacture exceptional doors frames and windows for clients around the globe. Our rigorous manufacturing processes combine seamlessly with our unparalleled craftsmanship. It’s the reason AMBICO is the trusted choice for architects and engineers looking for products for state-of-the-art hospitals, universities, banks, prison facilities, hotels, museums, and art galleries.
AMBICO’s talented team has expanded from the original five employees in 1955 to a staff of greater than 100 today, with expert machine operators working hand in hand with export specialists, engineers, and marketing professionals to deliver an internationally recognized product. But even as the company has grown, a commitment to excellence has remained at the core of our business. Our team is affiliated with Door and Hardware Industry (DHI), along with such international standards organizations as HMMA, CSDMA, ASTM, CSA, and ANSI. We also closely monitor local and international codes relating to construction and fire standards.
At all times, we keep top of mind that every building entrance generates an impression and conveys a message about what may be found within. Whether an opening is commissioned for a modern company headquarters or a century old heritage building, AMBICO guarantees exceptional decorative door and frame assemblies that combine unique design with function and serviceability. In other words, beauty does not have to take a back seat to technical considerations. A truly handsome door can also be blast-resistant, bullet-resistant, or meet rigorous acoustic requirements. If you can imagine it, we will strive to build it.
Unparalleled Installation Support
AMBICO supplies architects, engineers, and building contractors with detailed installation instructions. For complex projects, we offer the service of an AMBICO factory installer, sending them to the site to train and oversee the crew performing the installation work. We also offer free installation certification courses at our factory to train for the correct installation of our products in field applications.
An Innovation Leader
AMBICO’s manufacturing facility located in Ottawa, Canada, is equipped with the latest technology, ensuring AMBICO’s expert technicians can meet large-volume contracts while also constructing every door with precision and craft.

A Focus on the Environment
Where possible, AMBICO employs materials that are highly recycled, complying with LEED certification. All of our doors are available free of urea formaldehyde and VOCs (volatile organic compounds). AMBICO uses wood products that comply with Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) guidelines.
