On December 1, 2020, Finger Lakes Construction Co., Inc. was acquired by Marshall Exteriors, LLC of Newark. The company is owned and operated by Adam Olschewske.
This week company officials said the combined headquarters has moved from Clyde to Newark along with the Territory Managers and President, where they now work alongside employees of a rapidly growing business at Marshall Exteriors.
Olschewske started Marshall Exteriors in 2000. Over the past 21 years, he has experienced a tremendous amount of success growing his first business and plans to do the same with FLC. In 2019, Marshall Exteriors opened the largest home improvement showroom in New York State, along with their virtual design center and new headquarters.
The 16,000 square foot building is now their second facility in Newark, with plenty of room for FLC to continue to grow.
“The plan is to grow, just as we did with Marshall Exteriors. We added buildings, added people, added crews; that same plan will come through now on the FLC side and it offers a wide variety of jobs which is great for Newark itself,” CEO Anthony Natale said.
Marshall’s continued success paired with the promising future of the #1 Post Frame builder in NYS, is already allowing additions of buildings and people to take place. Both companies were recently approved for new land in Newark’s Industrial Park, to use as the location for their new production facilities. Although the companies operate out of Newark, they serve customers all throughout the Finger Lakes, Greater Rochester area, and even Syracuse.
To be able to grow another business with such high standards and a history of success has brought great humility to all involved. “I never in my wildest dreams would’ve thought I would own FLC. I’m honored and humbled to continue the legacy and vision,” Olschewske added.
The acquisition of Finger Lakes Construction is very exciting for both companies as the businesses line up well together, according to Natale. “The days of what a barn is used for are re-writing themselves and people are now using them for a variety of reasons. There is just a lot more detail going into these post-frame buildings than before. We’re excited for it,” added.
Currently located at 135 E Union St. in Newark, the facilities are home to two promising companies with teams comprised of many hard-working individuals. Even after 50 years of being a top name in the market, the opportunities for FLC under this new ownership are endless.
