U.S. Senator Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) announced on Monday that Prestige Industrial Finishing Co., a family-owned and operated manufacturing business based out of Shelton, is this week’s “Murphy’s Monday Manufacturer.” Founded in 1981 by husband and wife Ernest and Josephine Osso, Prestige provides powder coating and Military Specification painting services to the commercial, industrial, and military aerospace industries. Prestige is proud to work closely with a long list of renowned customers, including Sikorsky, General Dynamics, Boeing, GE, and Honda Aerospace.
Prestige employs 25 Connecticut residents out of their 15,000 square foot manufacturing facility. The Shelton manufacturer – which will soon be operated by a third-generation of family members – received the 2017 Family Business of the Year award from the Fairfield County Business Journal. Murphy visited the facility and spoke with employees in November 2016.
