The Portland opening is the most recent development in FinishMaster’s plan for strategic expansion in the Northwest. It follows the opening of the first FinishMaster branch in Seattle, WA in September 2015.
From process analysis and inventory management to technical resources and product support, the local FinishMaster team will work diligently to establish strong relationships with customers in the Portland metro area and surrounding cities and counties. It is well-equipped to provide all the tools necessary to help customers drive growth in their business.
With the addition of Oregon, FinishMaster is now located in 32 states and has committed to continuing to grow its national footprint organically and through select acquisitions.
“It’s an exciting time to be part of FinishMaster. We continuously challenge ourselves to grow and find areas where we can do more. Our ability to acquire select companies and open greenfield locations, as needed, positions us as a leader in service and support in our market,” said president and chief operating officer Steve Arndt. “Opening a greenfield branch in Portland is an opportunity to elevate the standard in customer experience in a new market, and we look forward to building long-term partnerships with new customers.”
“The opening of a new location in the Northwest is a great kick-off to 2017 and strengthens the foundation for continued growth in a key market. We are committed to continually build our customer coverage across the Northwest,” added Henry Buckley, president and chief executive officer of Uni-Select.
