Thomas A. Kuhns, Jr. founded West Interior Services Inc. in 1973. He chose to focus on furniture & woodwork refinishing and restoration because he always enjoyed and excelled at working with furniture, but didn't want to compete with his family's well established upholstery business.
West Interior Services' first location was in West Tarentum, PA (hence the name West Interior Services) just Northeast of Pittsburgh, and employed only 2 craftsmen. Despite its size, the tiny shop maintained steady clientele due to Tom and his employee’s excellent work. Soon, the business outgrew its location. As the years passed, West went through many incarnations & locations, growing in size all the while. Today, West Interior Services is based at a 12,500 square foot facility in Lower Burrell, PA and employs a full time staff of 15.
West’s craftsmen have worked on restoration projects up and down the US East Coast.
