Tony Schiavello, a furniture maker by trade, migrated to Australia from Italy in the 1950s, bringing with him the tenacity and can-do attitude that drove him to set up business providing interior fit out and supplying and installing partitions to Melbourne businesses.

Schiavello, a then small family business, was established in 1966 by Tony, with the support of his younger brother Joe, and a growing loyal team of dedicated people who shared the vision for absolute client care.

Since then, Schiavello has expanded into a multi-disciplinary, global organisation that employs over 1,300 people, and operates from 10 showrooms, six manufacturing plants, and an award-winning headquarters in Tullamarine, Victoria.

The company is ranked as one of Australia’s top 100 private companies by BRW. Still family-owned, Schiavello has remained true to the strong work ethic and family values on which the company was built over 50 years ago.
