Production Paint Finishers, Inc. (PPF) started in 1970 when founder Larry Francis decided to break away from his father’s automobile dealership, as he says, “With a paint gun in hand and no orders.”
Larry began by painting camper parts for Airstream in an old wooden building. After much work, his quality oriented, hardworking beginnings led to jobs for companies like Huffy, Shopsmith, Stanley, and Copeland, which resulted in a new and bigger facility in 1976. As PPF’s reputation for quality and craftsmanship grew, the company added on to its building in 1980—and again in 1989, 1997, and 2007.
“Production Paint Finishers always delivers the best paint and specialty finishes on time and meets our deadlines. They are an great supplier/vendor.”

Over the years, Larry’s sons, Allen and Russ, took over the business and carried on the tradition of delivering quality products on time and at a fair price. PPF has become a leader in the liquid and powder coating industry.
In addition to general commercial painting and powder coating, PPF has diversified and is known as one of the premier military specification paint houses in the nation (CARC). It is doing so by helping to complete mil spec CARC painting projects on armored vehicles and other components that protect our troops.
