Our Journey So Far

Family is at the heart of who we are

Kevin Stanley started our company back in 1975 with his brother, David, joining 9 years later. In 2011, David’s sons, Bill and Daryl joined the business and formed Pinnacle Furniture as we know it today.

Family is at the heart of who we are, and this includes our extended family of our colleagues at Pinnacle as well as our wider school community.
