We give professionals like yourselves the tools necessary to grow your business to new levels. The affect we can have on businesses like yours, can be nothing short of amazing! Modular Design Systems Inc. is privately owned by Frank Fumagalli and Brian Wolcovitch.  Both Brian and Frank bring 37 years of experience to the Optical industry. Brian has been involved in the Optical field since 1975 as a frame and Rx lab representative, and frame buyer for thirty of those years. During all those years, as a service to his clients, he helped them to plan the layout and flow of their offices . In 1976, Brian introduced the Vertical Acrylic frame display rod to the industry. Still in wide use throughout North America today. The acrylic frame display rod had a powerful affect on the industry and opened the minds of optical professional’s to a whole new way of presenting their frame products and services to their clients. In 1988 Brian and Frank met while building an office from one of Brian’s designs and became fast friends.  Frank, one of the best General Contractors Brian had ever met, gave Brian valuable insight into the construction of interiors. Frank, an accomplished furniture designer as well, taught Brian all aspects of furniture design and fabrication. Brian, in turn taught Frank to know everything about the Optical Industry and the design of Optometric offices and Optical Retail stores. Together, Frank and Brian designed and developed the Modular Frame Display System and feel that it is one of the most important tools any office can employ to reach new heights in sales and profits. Frank and Brian bring a lot of experience to bear on any project they take on. They consider themselves to be the best space planners in the industry and have amassed a strong reputation for doing what they say they are going to do for their clients,  on time, on budget and with a high degree of quality.

Testimonials

Dr. Areef Nurani

“When you did my first office eleven years ago, you did what you said you were going to do and when you said you were going to do it. I had an outstanding result and consequently when I decided to build a new office, my decision was to use MDS again.”

“In the first office you designed for me, I was hoping for a ten to fifteen percent increase and would have been happy with that result. However, in the first three years, I had a four hundred percent increase.”

“I am now in the new office coming up on four years and I have had a fifty percent increase in the growth of my practice.”
