OEM Compatibility

  1. Compatico created the aftermarket parts industry.
  2. For over thirty years, office furniture dealers, remanufacturers and refurbishers have depended on Compatico for compatible parts.
  3. Compatibility is with Steelcase® Avenir®. We have thousands of customers who are purchasing parts specifically to integrate with existing OEM systems.
  4. Power connection with existing Steelcase® Avenir® is not possible. A new power in-feed must be introducted to add to existing OEM product. All Compatico power is from Byrne Electric (Rockford, Michigan), a leading supplier to major OEM manufacturers.
