About Us

AFC Finishing Systems was established by Carl Hagan Sr. in 1967 in Southern California as a provider of air filter products and spray booth maintenance. In 1974, the company added spray booths to its growing list of products.

AFC Finishing Systems continued to grow over the years by expanding its product lines, customer bases, and geographic reaches. By the early 1980’s, AFC Finishing Systems had become a significant player in both the air filter and the spray booth markets.

In 1983, AFC Finishing Systems moved production of its filter products to Iowa and production of its spray booth products to Northern California. In 1988, the filter and spray booth divisions of the company split into two separate corporations, Air Filtration Co., Inc. and AFC Finishing Systems respectively. This separation allowed each company to focus exclusively on its specialties.

Our initial booth was designed in response to the need for a booth that was better than any available on the market. Since 1967, AFC Finishing Systems has added a series of other booths to provide the customer with a full line from which to choose. The reliable and easily installed CROSSFLO series forms the foundation of the line. The very popular and efficient SIDE DOWNFLO series represents a step-up in the performance for some additional costs. The high tech FULL DOWNFLO is another step-up in performance and is recognized by the industry as consistently producing the best finishes with the least re-work.

To complete the line, AFC Finishing Systems offers two of the finest downflo-type booths available in the market – the EUROSTYLE and the new and innovative QUADRAFT. Years of experience in the use, design, and production of quality spray booths have been combined to produce these fine turbulence-free booths, the ideal environment for spraying.

In addition to manufacturing spray booths, AFC Finishing Systems also manufactures its own heated air make-up systems, industrial ovens, lighting fixtures, dust collection systems, and much, much more. AFC Finishing Systems is also a major distributor of Graco’s industrial liquid finishing products and Wagner’s powder application equipment.

AFC Finishing Systems is still a privately owned company with a friendly family oriented atmosphere. Currently, AFC Finishing Systems is located in the quiet city of Oroville, California, a little over an hour’s drive North of Sacramento.
