Celebrating 40 years!
Peninsula Curtains and Blinds began in 1980 as a small business founded by Vic Bedin. The instant popularity of this concept saw additional staff join the team and a new location. This was the start of a promising family business that continues today.
A year later in 1981, at just 16 years old, Vic’s son Mark joined the team at Peninsula Curtains and Blinds. Mark's first job in the business was to cut the aluminium, this was used to manufacture roller blinds and vertical blinds. As the business grew Mark began to fill other roles in the company including manufacturing blinds, soft furnishings and installing. Vic then taught his son the art of decorating and colour coordination and with this, Mark went on the road of measuring and quoting.
Mark was now involved in the entire process of an order, from measuring and quoting a job, to manufacturing it and finally the installation.
From his start in the workroom, Mark is now the Managing Director of Peninsula Curtains and Blinds. Skills learnt and developed over that time are taught to new employees, just as in the past. A continual commitment to improving the skills and knowledge of staff maintains at Peninsula Curtains and Blinds.
