MOI Acquires American Office

May 31, 2022

MOI, the Mid-Atlantic region’s largest office furniture dealer, has acquired one of its main competitors, American Office. This acquisition was driven by the recent merger of Herman Miller and Knoll, now MillerKnoll, a collective of 19 design-centric furniture brands.

Founded in 1983, MOI is a 100% employee-owned company that is consistently ranked the largest Knoll dealership nationwide. MOI and Knoll have partnered for more than 25 years to provide design-driven solutions and exceptional service to our clients.

American Office, a third-generation family-owned company founded in 1932, has partnered with Herman Miller for more than 50 years to help create inspired physical spaces where clients work and thrive. American Office is consistently ranked the largest Herman Miller dealer in the Mid-Atlantic region.

We are excited to join the MOI family. We share the same values of trust and commitment to support our clients. The combined team is a truly diverse group with unique backgrounds, a passion for delivering outstanding customer service, and decades of experience along with a keen understanding of the many new work solutions needed today. Both MOI and American Office are leaders in our industry; and we are proud of what we have accomplished and confident and excited to continue to be a leader in our industry under the MOI brand.

– Michael and David Kuntz, American Office Leadership
MOI is a client-centered interior solutions provider that furnishes any space from floor to ceiling to transform their environments and enhance their cultures. MOI partners with clients from initial design vision to ordering product, delivery to installation, and move-in to post occupancy.

American Office is your trusted and true guide to making spaces worthy of your best work. Putting you at the center of all we do, we think through every detail and deliver exactly what you need. We work harder so you can work smarter. Because we believe honest work builds a better workplace.

Building upon our shared values and collaborative cultures, MOI and American Office unite as one organization to create one of the largest distributors of MillerKnoll in the country. This merger complements the execution excellence of our talented team members and the strength of MillerKnoll’s unmatched portfolio to enhance the experience for all our clients.

I am thrilled that our organizations are coming together to create a dynamic forward-thinking company. I have always had an enormous level of respect for American Office and the organization that the Kuntz family has successfully stewarded for three generations. We will continue to build on our previous individual successes to create a combined organization that can seamlessly and more completely serve our clients and their advisors. This platform will strengthen our partnership with MillerKnoll and will help to propel the new organization forward to achieve our long-term strategic objectives and continue to create an unparalleled client experience.

– David Noel, MOI President
Together as one, MOI and American Office have over 250 subject matter experts to seamlessly serve our clients across our shared markets in Maryland, Washington, D.C., Virginia, and beyond. Moving forward, we will be operating as one company, under the MOI brand led by David Noel, MOI’s current President.

In this time of unprecedented change, we are embracing the opportunity to build an organization that continues to partner to create intelligent spaces where people want to work, live, and stay.

Both MOI and American Office have been long time, valued partners of the Knoll and Herman Miller brands, respectively. With the acquisition of American Office by MOI, the collective talents of the two organizations coming together as one will provide customers with the deep expertise and insights needed to create compelling workplaces in the age of hybrid work. We are excited to continue our expanded partnership with MOI as we redefine the modern workplace.

– John Michael, MillerKnoll President, the Americas
