The History of Fortress Fusion

In the early 2000’s, to meet the needs of architects and engineers who wanted vibrant, durable color on metal products for projects, the Hubbell Galvanizing company founded Fortress Fusion, a powder coating operation.  The plant has powder coated materials for projects from Virginia to Maine.  It is a unique process, where the quality is highly supervised and tested to assure the proper coating meets specification.

Allen William Hubbell, Orville Hubbell’s son, was an active leader of the company until his death in 2005.  Until his premature death, Orville’s grandson, Daniel Merritt Hubbell was the President and CEO, and expanded both operations with great strategic methods. Orville's grandson, Jonathan Hubbell, was President until his retirement in December 2016.

Today Orville’s granddaughter and her husband, Jane & Steve Mulvihill, and Orville’s grandsons Peter Hubbell and Jonathan Hubbell are the leaders of the operations, along with Mark Wiswell who is the President of the company.

The plant expanded several times over the decades, but keeps all operations and the corporate headquarters at one site in New York Mills, NY.  The facilities operate 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
