About GFS

At Global Finishing Solutions® (GFS), we pride ourselves on being the experts in the finishing industry. Our greatest strength and the reason we have been successful is due to the contributions of our employees. This is especially true for a company of our culture and size. Although a large, growing business — with more than 400 employees — our heart remains rooted in small-town, homegrown values.

Our Culture

Our core values — family, respect, partnership, integrity and improvement — define our company culture and guide every aspect of our business, including our employees. We believe that every employee “makes their mark” on a company and should be empowered to make decisions and have an impact on our business. Our dedication to continuous improvement and growth translates into career opportunities for employees who seek additional opportunity.

Global Goodness

Global Goodness is a GFS employee recognition program that acknowledges and rewards employees for going above and beyond their normal job duties. Employees are nominated by other employees, and the committee selects monthly, quarterly and annual winners.

GFS plans fun events every year for employees and their families. This includes an annual holiday party, spring family outing, and summer golf and bean bags outing for employees and significant others.


From personal protective equipment (PPE) to lockout/tagout to material handling equipment, the safety committee provides an open forum to discuss recent accidents, near misses, corrective actions and opportunities for improvement.


The goal of the ergonomics committee is to relieve pain and discomfort from your daily desk life. Employees can request to be evaluated for a ball chair, standing desk or other ergonomic desk accessories.

We Care

GFS is dedicated to helping employees in times of need due to prolonged illness or natural disasters. Programs and fundraising efforts are held at GFS throughout the year, with 100 percent of the money raised going to GFS families in need.



The GFS Wellness Committee is designed to encourage and reward employees for making healthy, active lifestyle choices.
