General Finishes is a great American company, producing finishes right here in the Good ol USA, Made in America, with American pride, from humble beginnings to who they are now they have created the American dream for themselves, and the folks who they employ.
General Finishes History
General Finishes was founded in 1928 by a Milwaukee lumber company to make finishes for their cabinet-shop customers. The company was purchased by George C. Adams (President of General Finishes) in 1984, sales were $200,000 and the plant was a 2000-square-foot dry cleaning storefront in a residential neighborhood of West Allis.
Our main contact has been with Chris Adams, CEO of Concept Design Group, and, George C. Adams of General Finishes fame just happens to be her husband! To learn more about Mrs. Adams please see a brief bio at the GF Expo 2017 page.
Since General Finishes is our newest sponsor having come into our community at the beginning of 2021, General Finishes did not have the opportunity to participate in our fundraising projects during the 2020 year. They have committed to participating in our annual projects for our veterans, and our community.
The Patriot Woodworker Community is completely grateful for the support General Finishes is giving our community, and we look forward to working with them in the future. In quick-time General Finishes will have community project links stacked up below under the "Projects" header, we are very excited and proud to have General Finishes with us, and we look forward to a wonderful 2021 with General Finishes.
