On August 28, 1967 Arthur L. Hauge & Kelliel B. Hassain started Hauge & Hassain, Inc. The company was originally located at 419 Cedar Street in Seattle, Washington. It was established to engage in the business of the sale and installation of specialty wall covering as well as floor covering. In March 29, 1974, the company was sold to Kenneth K. Murray who then added Class ‘A’ office painting to the portfolio and slowly moved out of the flooring side of the business. The Company later moved to 207 6th Ave. N. Seattle WA near the Space Needle.
After twenty-three years of working towards becoming the best in wallcover installation and commercial painting in Seattle, Mr. Murray sold to Wayne Lennstrom in October of 1997. The company moved to it's current location in December 2007. The company expanded again with the addition of a spray booth for fine finishing woodwork.
Mr. Lennstrom is a member of the Finishing Contractors Association, affiliated with the International Union of Painters and Allied Trades. He is a trustee of the local Western Washington Signatory Painters, Labor Management Corporation Initiative, Western Washington Direct Contribution Pension Trust and is on the Joint Apprenticeship and Training Committee.
