In 1895 Russell Hinton, the founder of our company, began his career as a desk polisher in San Francisco. Over time and during his travels, Mr. Hinton imported European craftsmen who displayed innovative and unique painting techniques. In 1985, to add to an already established interiors division, Russell Hinton Co. expanded its’ operation by adding a drywall division.
