About Us

History of Executive Group

In May of 2007, Executive Group was founded as a two-man operation installing millwork. From there, the company quickly grew to over 30 employees by the end of 2009; handling millwork and FF&E installations up and down the entire east coast.

In 2010, Executive Group was able to expand from field services to their first 30,000 square foot warehouse; which included a 5,000 square foot millwork shop. By April 2014, the millwork shop had grown and moved to a 20,000 square foot shop in Amsterdam, NY. Shortly thereafter, Executive Group acquired their first company owned 330,000 square foot facility in Amsterdam, firmly planting their flag in the Capital Region, allowing Executive Group to service clients all over the Northeast corridor.

In 2020, Executive Group has grown to nearly 1,000,000 square feet of company owned warehouse and manufacturing facilities. With the manufacturing facility becoming a state-of-the-art factory. Today, Executive Group has more than 150 of the finest employees servicing the hospitality industry.
