“I wish all my sub contracted technicians were as professional as your company's staff is. I will make sure my head office is aware of the excellent job you did for this project! From start to finish everyone at you company has been professional and a pleasure to work with, Thank You.”Alexander Hughes—Superintendent, Rush Commercial Construction, Inc.
Founded in a garage on the Monterey Peninsula, best friends and business partners John Thomas and Ross Haisley started a company with a simple goal in mind - to provide a personalized, hands-on approach in the commercial window coverings industry utilizing the best products in the market. That simple thought led to the creation of Peninsulators in 1985.
Their two-man operation quickly grew. Over the years Peninsulators developed a reputation for being the window covering subcontractor throughout the Bay Area; tackling the most intricate, difficult, and unique projects on the market.
In September of 2020, an investor group led by The Courtney Group acquired a controlling percentage of Peninsulators and its affiliates Peninsulators Northwest and A Shade Above. Partners Tom Courtney, Alan Macksey, and Ed McKenna, Ph.D. of The Courtney Group led the transaction and are assisting in establishing and executing a strategic growth plan. Other investors include Lake Country Capital, a debt and equity provider based in Minneapolis, MN, and Los Angeles, CA.
In August of 2021, Ross Haisley retired and Peninsulators hired now CEO, Ron Johnson to lead the company into its bright future. Today, Peninsulators is one of the largest window covering subcontractors in the nation with offices in four locations and 100+ employees covering the West Coast.
