Mark Litwin

Wood Finish Specialist

Mark Litwin Pic Mark has been with C.H. Briggs for a little over a year as our Wood Finish Specialist. In this role, he offers custom finishing and consulting services. He provides assistance with ways to improve quality, creation of high end looks, utilization of multi-step finishes and troubleshooting issues all while keeping your costs down. Mark brings over 28 years of experience in the areas of team leadership, production supervision and management, fine furniture finishing, multi-step high-end finishing, and custom color matching.

Prior to joining C.H. Briggs, Mark’s first production wood finishing job was with Hamilton Clock in 1983. While he was there, he learned the art of fine furniture finishing through incorporation of multi-step high end finishes. As the years went by, the kitchen cabinet industry started to shift its focus to high end multi-step finishing. Mark spent most of his years as a team leader, production supervisor and later a production manager in that very industry. During that time, he also worked as a finish lab technician working with custom color matching and finish designs that would replicate all kinds of different looks and effects. He was also able to attend training programs on paints and finishes at paint and coatings manufacturers in Canada, Italy and the US.

In the beginning of Mark’s career here at C.H. Briggs, he was fortunate to be able to attend more training with the Valspar line. This experience enables Mark to provide valuable training and instructional information focused on maximizing capacity in your finishing area to process improvements.
