The Russ Bassett Legacy
In 1960, Mr. Russ Bassett started the company to design and manufacture high quality, specialty office furniture to solve problems not addressed by standard office furniture. Russ’ son Ed Bassett followed in his father’s footsteps. Joined by Mike Dressendorfer, they continued Russ’ vision and took the company from simple office products to more sophisticated and complex specialty media storage products.
By the mid-1970’s Russ Bassett was regarded as the premier manufacturer of microfilm cabinets in the United States.
Most of these steel cabinets can still be found in major libraries and archives across the country. Data media storage followed, with unique patented products including multi-story space-saving racking systems holding millions of tapes.
A new fresh direction for the company started in 2005 when Peter Fink and Linn Steinbeck joined Russ Bassett and started the transition from a leading media storage company to a premier console furniture company.
Today, Russ Bassett’s products blend wood and steel to deliver ergonomic, tech-integrated, durable console furniture to 24/7 mission-critical applications across the country.
As a trusted, knowledgeable partner, Russ Bassett is focused on delivering an excellent working experience – from project conception through successful project completion, and beyond as we provide ongoing service and support.
We are proud to say all Russ Bassett products are Made in the USA at our factory in Whittier, CA.
