The story of Service West is a story of family. From its founding in 1981 as a small furniture installation company in San Francisco, to the industry leader it is today, we celebrate the power of relationships with our employees and customers each and every day.
Our Service West success story begins, as it has for so many Americans, with immigrants looking for a better life. In 1957, Sean and Nuala Vignoles and their newborn son, Mark, left Ireland for the United States. With a strong belief in the power of hard work and a commitment to lasting client relationships, the Vignoles pursued and lived the American Dream, with Sean forging a successful 30-year career in commercial furniture sales and installation. He would pass on his passion for business, service and family to his son Mark, who in 1981 forged his own successful business path, with the opening of Service West.
Today, with the largest team of field and service employees, Service West has grown to be the West Coast’s leader in installation, warehousing and logistics. But some things haven’t changed: a focus on treating everyone as family, and a belief that “service is the key to success.” Building and managing a successful business as large and complex as ours is a team effort, and we are fortunate to have some of the best professionals in the business.
We provide statewide service to all of California. We maintain more than 400,000 square feet of warehousing space with facilities located in the San Francisco Bay Area and Southern California.
Our team includes field and service personnel, and we are signatory to carpenters and drywall agreements. Plus, our fleet of trucks is the largest in the industry.
