Since my Father, Gerry O’Halloran, opened Rapid Finishing in 1960, we’ve performed powder coating, liquid painting and silk-screening using state-of-the-art techniques and equipment. Our father was a visionary and an astute business person and with his knowledge and work ethic, and with his wife Barbara’s assistance, they created a successful and industry respected business in a very short time. They opened the business in a small building located in Dedham, MA and they quickly outgrew that and two other buildings. They next purchased the existing building on 43 Simon St in Nashua NH. In 1996, our father decided to retire and Barbara took over as president for a short time until the management team decided to have their oldest son Jay step in as the new president. Jay, David and Keith continued to grow and operate the business as our father had.
In 2003, a couple more family members were added to the Rapid Finishing Management team with Peter “PJ” Stathopoulos and Chris Stathopoulos both being promoted to production managers. They have proved to be valuable assets to the team and have contributed greatly to the success Rapid Finishing has enjoyed since their addition to the management team.
Unfortunately, Rapid Finishing and the O’Halloran family lost Jay to cancer in 2005 and Keith O’Halloran took over as president at that time. With these changes, we continue to work as a team and have grown the business even further as our company has recently began operating a second location called Rapid Finishing North which is located on 5 George Avenue in Londonderry, NH.
Over the years, our team of topnotch professionals, which includes; maskers, powder coaters, liquid painters, silk screeners, drivers and quality inspectors, have helped us maintain a quality standard that is unsurpassed in the industry. Our large facility in conjunction with our new location, houses a huge inventory of powders and liquid paint from the industries top suppliers and this helps allow us to achieve turn-around times that are second to none.
Today, almost six decades since it all began, Rapid Finishing is still a family owned and family operated business that is committed to excellence and customer satisfaction.
