RACINE — Pastorino Decorating, Inc. announced that for the first time since the company was founded in 1946, it will be owned by someone outside of the Pastorino family. The southeastern Wisconsin’s business was sold to Randy Copenharve on Tuesday by Stan Postorino, who has owned the company since 1982.

Postorino, former president and CEO, will remain in a consulting role during the transition while the daily operations remain unchanged for the company’s 50 employees and numerous customers.

Postorino Decorating Inc., which provides commercial painting, drywall, acoustical ceiling and concrete finishing work, partners with general contractors on projects throughout southeast Wisconsin, including Racine, Kenosha, Walworth, Milwaukee, Waukesha and Ozaukee counties.

Recently, Postorino Decorating Inc. has provided work on interior acoustical ceilings and exterior finishing of Foxconn’s first building in Racine, as well as renovations to the Snap-on Inc. world headquarters in Kenosha, ongoing interior and exterior work for Uline’s headquarters in Pleasant Prairie, and major renovations to the S.C. Johnson & Son world headquarters in Racine.

“I know I’m leaving my family’s legacy in good, capable hands with Randy (Copenharve),” said Postorino in a statement.

Copenharve spent the last 13 years at Uline as director of facilities and construction.
