Welcome to AMBICO

Welcome to AMBICO’s local (Eastern Ontario) portal for door related products and services. For over 65-year history in the Ottawa area, AMBICO has grown and evolved its product offering in doors, door hardware and service to better serve its market. The company has also strategically reinvented itself, establishing the company’s name and reputation as a leader in the fabrication of specialty door assemblies in the global marketplace. All the while, the company has remained true to its Ottawa roots, and to supplying the contractors and local environs in Eastern Ontario at the heart of its success. AMBICO was founded in 1955 by brothers-in-law Israel Shinder and Emanuel Lightstone. Today the company is run by cousins-in-law Jack Shinder (son of Israel) and Judah Silverman (son-in-law of Emanuel).
