Primo International is a leading Canadian importer of fine quality leather and fabric upholstery, bedding, home furnishings and décor. In addition, Primo strives to manufacture high-quality product while ensuring the highest level of quality control, due in part to a newly acquired automatized production line. Founded and headquartered in Montreal, Quebec, Primo International is a family run business, led by its President and CEO, George Itzkovitz.
Our steady growth and success is a direct result of our dedication to building strong alliances with our customers and suppliers from around the world. As a company that prides itself on treating its clients with honesty, fairness, and respect, we committed to offering the highest standard of products and designs, while maintaining competitive industry prices.

Automatized Production Line
Dear Customers and Suppliers,
The Customs Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (“CTPAT”) program is a supply-chain security program instigated by U.S. Customs and Border Protection to work with US importers of record, exporters, logistic providers and manufacturers to reduce the risks posed to the supply chain from terrorism and other criminal activities.
As a proud member of the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) CTPAT program since August 2, 2005; supply chain security continues to be an integral part of Primo International’s culture and business processes.
As an active CTPAT validated member, Primo International has developed, and maintains, a multi-layered security program that is consistent with the CTPAT minimum-security criteria (MSC) and remains committed to protecting our organization and supply chain from any illegal or illicit activities.
CTPAT responsibilities touch on virtually every department at Primo including our North Carolina and California distribution centers and regional offices in Vietnam and China; Primo has assembled a team of employees from Human Resources, Facilities Management, Health and Safety, Quality Management, Logistics, and Information Technology to work together to communicate and implement CTPAT principals throughout our organization. Primo International understands that threats to supply chain security evolve and therefore the teams review and update our security procedures regularly.
At Primo International we understand that our company is only one of many who are included in our supply chain and feel that security is everyone’s responsibility. As such, all employees and business partners, including contractors, service providers, and visitors are educated and must comply with the company’s CTPAT policies and procedures that are in place at each facility.
Primo International’s management gives its full support to the CTPAT team and its efforts to ensure that our supply chain and our business remain safe and secure for all Primo’s stakeholders.
Sincerely, Primo International Inc. George Itzkovitz President and Chief Executive Officer
