Proposed New Corporate Headquarters & Factory

MDC (Metal Designs & Concepts Limited) was established in 1988 and entered the market as a manufacturer of Metal Tubular furniture, Signs & Light fittings.


As the Company grew it focused its core business on the office furniture market. In 1995 the Company acquired the operations of the Universal Metal Company, which was at the time a division of the Neal & Massy Group. The merged operation became known as MDC-UM, which was adopted as the trade name of the company.


The Company today is the largest manufacturer and distributor of; Office Furniture, Commercial Furniture, Restaurant Furniture, School Furniture and now manufacturing Kitchen Cabinets & Stainless steel countertops, in the Caribbean with a 5,000 sq. metre facility in Trincity, Trinidad which employs some 100 people. In addition to the traditional products manufactured, MDC-UM operates in partnership with the world’s second largest office furniture manufacturer, H.N.I. Corporation headquartered in Iowa, USA and we carry such prestigious brands as Allsteel, Gunlocke, HON, HBF, Lamex, Paoli, Dauphin and Maxon.


Our relationship allows us to add value and utilize local material in the sale of HNI products which comply with ANSI-BIFMA standards. New CNC technology has been introduced in the manufacturing process to further deepen this affiliation.
