Our roots

See More of Our Staff

Pinnacle Textile Industries, LLC was founded by three industry veterans with over 100 years of combined experience between them. Robert Lazarus, Chairman, Patrick Methven, President and Managing Partner, and David Gurss, VP of Sales, were instrumental in building family-owned Penn State Textile Mfg. Inc. into a nationally-renowned, industry innovator.

They’ve drawn on their deep roots in the business and grown Pinnacle Textile into a service-centric company 100% focused on meeting the demands of demanding clients, with a broad range of product lines. From KITCHEN BASIX, our standard, high-volume brand of chef coats, shirts and pants for culinary institutes and home laundering programs ... to our heavy-duty PINNACLE HD brand, a line of 100% polyester garments that best withstand the rigors of industrial laundering … to CHEF TRENDS, our top-of-the-line brand constructed of 100% cotton, 65/35 or 80/20 blends, and rivaling the highest quality apparel available. At a fraction of the cost.

Pinnacle meets “impossible” deadlines with 100% SAME-DAY SHIPPING on orders received before 4 PM EST. We always maintain deep inventories across the board, insist on unerring fabric consistencies and maintain exacting quality controls.

Our manufacturing capabilities are global, utilizing first-rate fabrics and meticulous sewing standards to withstand the gauntlet of industrial washings. And that’s why Pinnacle is able to offer a 60-DAY, NO-HASSLE RETURN POLICY.

Our clients
