Over 35 years ago Burt Grimes dreamed of owning a manufacturing business. With advice from his uncle who knew about upholstery, Burt took his entrepreneurial spirit and purchased a small upholstery company. He envisioned a manufacturing business that would put a strong focus on quality products and exceptional customer service. With that vision, he was able to succeed!
Several years ago, Burt welcomed his daughter Nicki into the business. During her high school and college years, Nicki had always helped her dad. After graduating from college she worked in sales for several years and with this background, Nicki brought a fresh new style to align with the client’s needs. This customer-centric approach has allowed Pacific West Furniture to continually innovate and better serve their customers.
After initially leading the sales and marketing division, Nicki was officially named President of Pacific West Furniture Manufacturing. The business continues to thrive due to Burt’s vast knowledge of manufacturing combined with Nicki’s contemporary approach to sales and marketing. The company started as a family business back in 1979 and continues to operate with those same core values as the legacy continues.
