Tony, with the support of his brother Joe Schiavello, founded the company in 1966 on the principles of innovation, quality and service excellence, and with the premise that “anything is possible.”

Under Tony’s stewardship, the Schiavello Group has grown from a small interior fit out and partitioning business, to the thriving, multidisciplinary company it is today; one of Australia’s most respected interior construction specialists, furniture designers, manufacturers, and property developers. Now, almost 50 years on, Schiavello still upholds the values and integrity it was built on, providing every client with exceptional service and well-engineered products that exceed their expectations.

Widely recognised for his significant contribution to Australia’s manufacturing and construction industries, Tony was inducted into the Victorian Manufacturers Hall of Fame in 2008, and more recently, honoured as a Member of the Order of Australia (AM) in the 2013 Australia Day Honours.
