About Demco

Demco History

A Look at Today

Today the company has grown from four people in the Library Department of the Democrat Printing Company in 1905 to over 250 coworkers in 2008, with offices in Madison, Wisconsin. The catalog of products has grown from twelve pages to over one thousand. The company added new services, including a subscription service and a turnkey space management service that includes both design and supply for the many different kinds of libraries that exist today.

Demco can now help libraries create inviting environments for the changing demands of library patrons. We can do this because in response to requests, the company added Demco Library Interiors in 2003, which offers librarians and educators all the interior design help they need from measurement to installation.

A Look at the Future

Clearly libraries are changing…but they have been changing since they began. They are also staying very much the same as they change. After all, libraries have been a primary community resource in the U.S. since they were first conceived as a way to promote and preserve democracy. But change is always unpredictable. Demco is prepared and looks with enthusiasm toward the many new roles the company can play in helping libraries continue to respond to their communities.
