Nice old chairIn 1977 it was Roger Dixon Beer’s vision to create an upholstery company that provided specialist skills and craftsmanship to both residential and corporate clients, thereby creating a legacy his children would one day inherit. Able Upholsters began as a family-run business over 36 years ago and remains a family-owned business today. Since joining Able Upholsters at the tender age of 18, Sam Schotel (Roger’s youngest daughter) was coached to one day take the lead, pushing Able Upholsters (sp) to new heights. Sam Schotel now runs this successful upholstery company with the same dedication and passion her father did.
