Iconic brand to continue operations with DeskMakers, paving the way for a new era of innovative solutions.
DeskMakers Elevates Workplace Design Legacy with Strategic Acquisition of Peter Pepper Products’ Operating Assets
December 12, 2023, Commerce, CA – DeskMakers is excited to announce the acquisition of the operating assets of Peter Pepper Products effective December 12, 2023.
Peter Pepper Products will continue to operate as a standalone division of DeskMakers, retaining its name, customer service team, and sales representatives.
Peter Pepper Products was founded in 1952 and over its illustrious history has evolved from a residential goods line to an unmistakable presence within corporate, education, healthcare, and government environments across the globe. Today, the brand’s products include waste and recycling receptacles, clocks, work tables, display cases, hat and coat hooks, lecterns, literature racks, and visual boards.
“We are enthusiastic about carrying out Peter Pepper Products’ mantra of design, performance, and practicality,” said Phil Polishook, CEO of DeskMakers. “The brand is beloved in our industry for its history of producing interesting products in categories that are generally overlooked by other office furniture manufacturers. To that end, we plan on introducing exciting and innovative new products under the Peter Pepper brand in the coming months.”
Commenting on the acquisition, Sigi Pepper, President/CEO of Peter Pepper Products noted, “Today’s transaction with DeskMakers is a new era for the company our family has owned and managed for over seven decades. We wish everyone involved a successful future.”
Bob Caseres, who has served as Peter Pepper’s Vice President of Manufacturing since 1990, will continue in his role following the acquisition. John Whichard, an industry veteran with prior experience at DeskMakers, Steelcase, and Pivot Interiors, will act as Vice President of Sales, working closely with the existing Peter Pepper sales representatives in regional markets.
“We look forward to this next chapter for both DeskMakers and Peter Pepper Products,” Polishook added. “We remain committed to the two brands operating synergistically while upholding the individual personalities and legacies of these brands.”
