Boucherville, Quebec — May 1, 2018 — FinishMaster recently announced the celebration of its 50th anniversary of operation. 
On April 25, 1968 in Grand Rapids, Michigan, founder Jim White completed FinishMaster’s first transaction with the aspiration of delivering automotive aftermarket products to collision repair shops. Over the past 50 years, FinishMaster has expanded from a single outlet to a team of more than 1,800 associates with over 200 branches.
“The core values Jim embodied from the very beginning have stood the test of time and still guide us forward today. We continue to put our customers first and embrace change with the market,” said Steve Arndt, president and chief operating officer of FinishMaster. “As we reach the milestone of our 50th year, I can confidently say Jim and the FinishMaster family have succeeded in the paint business. We are grateful to our team, customers, and manufacturer partners for their support of our growth.”
In celebration of this anniversary, FinishMaster has donated $50,000 to the Collision Repair Education Foundation (CREF). The contribution provides support for CREF and their mission to improve high school and college collision school programs by training and connecting students interested in entering the industry.
