Mercatus International Marketing, Inc. was founded as a Michigan company in 1986, to serve the needs of the industrial manufacturing community with technical products and services.
In 1989 the company moved its operations to Carlsbad, California, concentrating on the Southwestern Region of the United States, targeting electronics, aerospace, semiconductor, military, healthcare and other technically oriented markets, enhancing its reputation as industrial and commercial workspace problems solvers. In 1989, Mercatus contracted with the US Navy in San Diego as an ESD [Electro Static Discharge] consultant. While conducting an ESD audit for the Navyís Mobile Maintenance Facilities which transport electrostatically sensitive workstations on seafaring vessels, Mercatus met and began their association with Symbiote Technical Furniture www.symbiote.com.

Since then, Mercatus has been the exclusive territorial factory representative for Symbiote serving Southern California, Hawaii, Arizona, New Mexico, Las Vegas, West Texas and Mexico.

In the mid 1990ís, company president William J. Rathsburg expanded the corporate charter to include Design & Build capabilities. This initiative allowed Mercatus to provide a broader range of solutions to the overall operations of its manufacturing and distribution clients. Working with corporate management and their architects, Mercatus International established its new client services role of General Contractor, taking responsibility for all aspects of a corporate consolidation, operational restructuring and/or relocation. Taking on this Turn-Key responsibility allows its customers to concentrate on the continued success of their daily operations, without interruption.
