Southern Aluminum Southern Aluminum is the leading manufacturer of innovative linenless meeting and event furniture. For 45 years, we have pioneered a wide range of furniture, including meeting and banquet tables, event cocktail tables, mobile nesting buffets, mobile bar and beverage systems, retail-style shelving, and much more. Our suite of linenless solutions can complement any space design through our multi-faceted product customization. INDUSTRY EXPERTS By tradition, Southern Aluminum began as an outdoor furniture manufacturer when Founder Charlie Taylor began crafting picnic tables in 1978 as a retirement hobby. The company eventually found its way into the hospitality industry in the early 2000’s through designing products for meeting and event spaces. Partnering with key customers, we quickly became the leader of linenless event furniture through handcrafting meeting tables and banquet furniture to meet industry demands for linenless products. Designed to elevate customer experiences and activate spaces for a myriad of purposes, our focus today is to offer dynamic

solutions to support operational needs through innovative, long lasting, quality products. THE LINENLESS ADVANTAGE Linens and their associated upkeep affect daily operations and considerably impact budget. From longer employee setup hours, to elevated laundry costs, to keeping up on inventory per levels, linens have become a thing of the past for operators. A “less-is-more” approach is the right approach, and it has become a compelling business case to transition to a linenless table platform, one that provides so much return with a more environmentally conscious position.

Eustis Chair “We chose Eustis Chair to build our new dining room chairs and bar stools for their unmatched quality and durability. Having an elegant stacking hardwood chair was also critical because of the large number of events we host. Members have been thrilled with the redesign. Year to date, we have increased our member-dining food sales by 12 percent and our member bar sales by 9 percent. Members who wouldn’t come near the main dining room are now choosing to dine here because they feel comfortable in this space.” General Manager Corinthian Yacht Club “We purchased 275 Eustis Chairs approximately five years ago. The quality craftsmanship has allowed our chairs to look as good today as they did the day they were delivered. None of our members or guests know they are a stackable chair, and we receive compliments regularly that they aren’t “institutional” looking. I could not be happier with our choice to partner with Eustis on this project for our club.” Club Manager Woodstock Club


Eustis Chair designs and manufactures the most durable and elegant hardwood seating available. Each chair is made to order in our American factory using our proprietary Eustis Joint® for unmatched durability. Our line of stacking chairs comes with a 20-year warranty and can stack up to 10 chairs high for easy maneuverability and storage. Your members will be delighted with the comfort and elegance, and your facilities team will appreciate the stackability and durability. Call us today to discuss your next renovation project.

Building Your Dreams on our Legacy of Innovation ABOUT US

We trace our history to 1996, when Charles Chapus created Abrisud. He earned around 20 patents for his suite of products and made his company the European leader in pool covers by 2005. Chapus continued to design new products and new methods for crafting them, earning more patents with O Plus Piscene in France, which had four retail locations and built more than 500 pools. Chapus formed Azenco Groupe France in 2011 before expanding to Spain in 2016, along with Switzerland and the United States in 2017. In 2019, Azenco achieved milestones on both sides of the Atlantic: partnering with Akena Group, the number one sunroom manufacturer in Europe, becoming the leading maker of pool enclosures in the European market, and opening its first U.S. manufacturing facility in Miami, Florida.

We’re inviting you to a new kind of outdoor experience, where you are at one with nature and have control over the elements. Our full range of products are sophisticated and strong — and we will custom-engineer them to make the most of your space. We’re building on our legacy of innovation by merging precision manufacturing, artful design and the best of home automation technology. Every detail has been thoughtfully considered, from streamlined exteriors with no visible screws to double-wall louvres and hidden gutter systems. Soak up the sun, dial in just the right amount of shade, and stay dry when the rain comes. When you’re ready to step outside, we will be with you every step of the way — from dreaming up your new space together to standing by you with an industry-leading warranty and service program. Stand beside one of our pergolas, carports or pool covers, and see pleasing proportions and clean lines that enhance the landscape around you. Watch the wind buffet tree branches nearby while your patio cover stands firm. Feel the first drop of rain and watch the louvres above close themselves mere seconds later. You can’t see it with the naked eye, but decades of experience in engineering and technology make these experiences possible.

Today, we use our 25 years of experience and 30 patents to create products that make life better outdoors for our customers and their guests. But we aren’t resting on the achievements in the past — every day, we’re applying new insights and the latest technology to continue driving our work forward. Let’s create the outdoor life of your dreams together.
