History

Calstone was established in 1985 by Jim Ecclestone and two business partners. For over 20 years, business grew steadily with the Mailroom Furniture and Modular Pack Bench lines.

Business furniture was introduced in the late 80′s servicing the institutional marketplace. Strong customer relationships were cemented and sales grew annually. In 2006, one era ended and another began. When Jim’s partners retired early in the year and the Ecclestone family decided to buy out their shares and become a 100% Canadian family owned and operated business. Jim’s twin daughters, Laura and Jamie and son Matthew made a commitment to build the business together and assure our customers that we are “staying in business” for another generation.
