Hi and Welcome to the new Masterfinishing.ca. My goal with this website is to give you some information about me, my company and what we do. In 2006 I got sick of my sales job specializing in abrasives and thought a change of companies would help. It didn’t, so after only 3 months in my new job selling woodworking machinery with a 3 year old daughter and a wife who was 8 months pregnant I quit my job. My first day off coincided with my wife’s first day of pregnancy sick leave. As you can imagine this was a stressful time but slowly I decided I could start a company doing what I loved in a unique way. It started with simple beliefs and ideas. I am still passionate about what I do.
Master Finishing Supplies was started in 2006 by Mark Carruthers to service the woodworking and metalworking markets. Mark brought with him many years experience in abrasives, tools, pneumatics and wood finishing. Mark believed that a simple honest approach to business mixed with a cando attitude and strong industry knowledge would lead to success. Steady growth despite tough market conditions led to larger product offering and more diverse items
The company founder, Mark Carruthers, has over 10 years experience servicing your market. Whether a hobbiest in their garage, a small cabinet shop or a huge corporation Mark listens to your needs then makes product recommendations. Years of experience allow us to recommend processes, tools and products that will improve your efficiency which will improve your bottom line
I started with a few suppliers with a small inventory in the basement of my house. As time went on key suppliers came on board. We now have one of the most comprehensive offering for the wood/metal trade. I undergo training from each of our suppliers which becomes part of my technical edge.
Master Finishing supplies has welcomed new technology. In 3 years our business software has been upgraded 3 times. This is the third revamp of our website. I specialize in introducing new products to industry. We launched Dynabrades new Silver supreme sander in 2009, Binks Comet 4/12 pumps in 2009 and look forward to more new launches soon.
