After 27 years at Allegheny Store Fixtures, founders Steve and Darcy DiFazio are retiring and transitioning the business to new owners, Petra Stana and Garrett Raney.
The DiFazios have built up ASF as a pillar of the Bradford community and those relationships, friendships, and portfolio of work will be their legacy.
The company began operations in Bradford’s business incubator in 1994. Throughout its history, ASF had been recognized both nationally and locally as a leader in the woodworking and fixture industries. The DiFazios attribute the company’s success to its resilience in meeting challenges and the dedication of its employees. Steve DiFazio commented, “It has been a privilege to operate in the Bradford area and we have been lucky to have had such a talented, ambitious group of employees.”
At its height, ASF employed 78 workers. Quick response, impeccable customer service, and second to none fixtures were the driving force behind its success.
New owners Stana and Raney see a company that has potential beyond its namesake store fixtures and aim to offer custom commercial millwork to a wide variety of clients and industries. As newly minted entrepreneurs, they do not take this responsibility lightly and were mindful of choosing to invest in a community that gives back. They believe in keeping jobs in Bradford, keeping suppliers local, developing people through opportunity, and crafting a sustainable business.
With over 20 years of combined experience in business management, marketing, P&L management, and business development for Fortune 500 companies, Stana and Raney are well equipped to lead Allegheny Store Fixtures into the future. Together with a fantastic and loyal team of leaders, project managers, and highly skilled craftsmen, they will energize the business and take it to new heights.
