“We are very excited about acquiring Mass Finishing, as it brings new dimensions to our current product and service offerings, and we have acquired a very talented and experienced workforce," said Mike Larson, CEO, Innovance. "This move adds high energy centrifugal barrel finishing systems to our product line-up, which complements our Almco vibratory finishing systems.

“I started out by operating the mass finishing division at Timesavers, Inc. in 1987," said Tommy Mathisen, Vice President, Mass Finishing. "In 1995, without any knowledge on running a business, my brother Mike and I bought MFI. We worked ambitiously and turned MFI into a profitable and reliable company. Now it's time to take another step and have a company that is a known leader in the industry take MFI to the next level. We look forward to working with Innovance/Lou Rich/Almco; their experience in sales, service and marketing will make MFI even stronger in the mass finishing industry.”
