About Pinnacle Dryer Corporation

In this video, Kim Gavrelis of Pinnacle Dryer Corp. demonstrates and explains the simple, effective design of our hand dryers.


Ed Smith and Kim GavrelisPinnacle Dryer Corp. was established in 1994 to service the hand dryer market with quality products and a promise to give quick and satisfying service to our customers.  

Ed Smith, President, started the company with a single line of surface mounted hand dryers.  He began marketing it to schools, convenient markets, restaurants and DOT rest stops. Customers liked the dryer but schools kept asking for a more vandal resistant hand dryer.  In 1998, after consulting with engineers, Pinnacle introduced the ADA compliant, stainless steel PDC-R10 Recessed Hand Dryer. In 2006, Pinnacle added the ADA compliant, stainless steel P3-12S Surface Hand Dryer

In 1998, Ed's daughter, Kim Gavrelis, joined the company as a sales representative for the Mid-Atlantic region.   In 2010, she moved home to NC and began assisting with the day to day operations at Pinnacle Dryer, while continuing her sales role. In 2012, Kim was promoted to VP Sales & Operations, where she manages sales and marketing and continues to oversee the day to day operations.

At Pinnacle, we are a family run business. And, over the years, many of our customers have come to feel like family. What's most important to us?  To make a high-quality hand dryer, keep our customers happy with great service and keep 'em coming back!

Customer Review:

"I just want to thank you and your company for the great hand dryers. I am a electrician for the school system and for the past several years I have been replacing all our old dryers with your Pinnacle Hand Dryers, and I have to say ... 'I am impressed'. Still to this day, I have had not one problem with any I have installed. They all have been running as good as the day I installed them.  Keep up the good work! Looking forward to working with you in the future."
