This May, Heggem-Lundquist Paint Co. is celebrating 70 years in the business. The company specializes in light gauge steel stud framing, interior metal framing, RF shielding, drywall, tape and finishing, multiple plaster finishes, stucco/EIFS, paint, wallcovering and wood finishing. And of course, a big part of the company’s bread and butter is through the installation of ceiling systems.
The story begins with Uno Lundquist, who worked for Famer Heggem prior to opening up his own business, Lundquist Fine Painting and Decorating in 1949. The two companies merged in 1962 and became incorporated under Heggem-Lundquist Paint Co. During the 1960s, the company branched out into steel stud framing, drywall and plaster finishing.
