We Are CMS

About Us

CMS has implemented environmentally responsible initiatives in all aspects of our business, including the shipment of our products throughout the USA, Canada, Caribbean, and South America. We support sustainable forestry practices and recycle 100% of our wood chips and sawdust. All waster products including cardboard and steel are sorted and recycled. CMS recognizes the importance of sustainability and the continued improvement of our environmentally-friendly processes.

Client relationships are the foundation of our business! Our team recognizes that great relationships don’t just come from selling a product but believing in it. Our team is constantly buzzing over what we do and are excited to help solve our client’s challenges. Our customers remain the center of our circle and we’re always focusing on being 110% dedicated and attentive to all of their situations and requests.

CMS is known by our presence in supermarket and retail environments; but we are equally proud of our small, tight-knit family culture. We deliver our core values into every job completed and every relationship built.

CMS Established

Don Smith started the business with a heavy emphasis on grocery store display fixtures. Initial products included Eurotables and other produce-based merchandisers.


First Product Designed

Our 3-Tier Merchandiser became one of our most popular products, selling in the thousands. This unit was designed to provide a high and low presentation for volume type products. Our product line has continually grown over the years and we’ve since designed several products offering this same presentation.
