Incorporated in 2013, Upper Desk, Inc. had its humble beginnings in the home of a forward thinking, lifelong inventor—Roderick Phillips. Together with his daughter, Stephanie Phillips-Taggart, Phillips developed the Upper Desk concept. The duo’s efforts honor the late Debra Phillips—Rod’s wife of 34 years and Stephanie’s mother. Prior to her passing in 2009, she left behind a special request for her husband to “keep inventing.”
Along with Upper Desk CEO, Matthew Fidler, the team transformed Phillips’ idea into an award-winning retail product. The Pennsylvania based corporation has received a 2015 Small Business ImPAct award nomination from the Commonwealth. Its signature product—The Portable Tablet Mount for Cabinets—has won three industry innovation awards—including the Gold Award for Innovation at the 2014 National Hardware Show, Las Vegas, the International Home and Houseware Innovation Finalist Award, Chicago and a 2014 New Product Development Award from Bucknell University’s Small Business Development Center, Lewisburg, PA. The five star-rated product can be found in over 200 Sam’s Club clubs throughout the nation, on Sams.club.com and Amazon.com.
Since its beginnings, the family guided company has grown to include a team of exceptional owners, employees and distribution centers. Majority owned and operated by women, Upper Desk, Inc. strives to offer quality, dependable products that improve the lives of technology users everywhere.
