Russin has broken ground on a state-of-the-art factory finishing operation across the street from its main distribution center in Montgomery, N.Y.

Russin has broken ground on a state-of-the-art factory finishing operation across the street from its main distribution center in Montgomery, N.Y.

Called “RFF” for short, Russin’s factory finishing operation will continue to provide the market with industry-leading wood priming, top-coating and staining services for customers in its 13-state trading area.

Russin has been offering factory finishing services since 1997 with a heavy focus on customization. Combined with its in-house milling capabilities, Russin Factory Finishing can offer virtually any wood species and profile, coated in a wide range of tones ranging from clear coats to opaque finishes. By partnering with major paint and stain companies such as Benjamin Moore and Sherwin Williams, Russin can say yes to just about anything, quickly.

The new operation will also focus heavily on production of the company’s new Summit Rainscreen Systems, which offer a built-in rainscreen clip.

The new plant is expected to be operational in October.
