High Lustre Metal Finishing all started with two guys out of high school with a desire to turn what they love into a career to support themselves and their family.

In 1976, Rich Graham (shown right) started working for a schoolmate's brother, Mike Leonard (shown left), right out of high school. At that time, Mike owned a small business specializing in chrome restoration. A couple of years later, the two of them sought after bigger real estate to take on the large volume of projects that were coming in. In 1979, the company refiled as High Lustre Metal Finishing and was relocated to a small commercial building off American Avenue. 

Over the years the business expanded, taking in additional metal finishing capabilities, gaining popularity with high profile businesses and A-list celebrities while outgrowing their storefront property.

Over the past 20 years, Rich's two children, Stephen and Richard, lent a hand in the shop where they could. In 2018, Richard stepped into a full-time position with his dad and Mike to help take on the family business.

"We feel like things such as quality, professionalism, dependability and a service-oriented attitude should be free and expected. Poor quality, lost parts, delayed processing time and downright ill-mannered treatment all cost you time, money, and patience.

You won't have any of these expenses with us. You'll get quality finish backed up by over 40 years of experience"
