Zach RuprichProject Manager


Zach is the senior Project Manager for Pennsylvania Coatings. This year Zach is celebrating 5 years with Pennsylvania Coatings Inc.  He has 11 years of paint and construction experience, with 10 years of experience in the paint and coatings industry, including 5 years on the manufacturing side with Frazee Industries under the ownership of Comex Paint and Sherwin-Williams. His experience working for a paint manufacturer, excelling in commercial sales and service, and in project management in commercial contracting, has given Zach great knowledge and technical understanding in leading the many diverse projects our company has undertaken.  Zach’s customer service is second to none.  His very friendly nature and committed work ethic are truly exceptional in our industry.

Zach has handled a high volume of project management responsibilities. Notable accomplishments include completing the full re-construction of Indian Wells Tennis Garden Stadium 1, one of the premier and largest tennis stadiums in the world in early 2017, in a very condensed 3 month schedule. He also supervised the completion of the 9-story new tower of Hilton Waterfront Huntington Beach in 2018, meeting the challenge of repairing large scale water intrusion damage to architectural steel that occurred during construction, as well as managing high volume wallcovering and painting operations.

Zach is an enthusiastic sports fan and athlete, playing in adult basketball and soccer leagues.  He’s also a proud uncle and oldest brother. He is engaged to be married to his lovely bride-to-be, and our team is excited for him and his wife’s future.

  • “I have worked with Pennsylvania Coatings Inc. for many years and will continue to do so. Their organization is well put together, always professional and the work is of high quality. In construction we have daily if not hourly challenges, I have had very few with Penn Coatings but if I did they were always a problem solver and owned it even in times when we didn’t agree. They got it handled and we sorted it out later as to not delay the project. This is very valuable and a culture that cannot be taught it has to be natural. So between the professionalism, quality and culture, I will happily continue to use Pennsylvania Coatings in the future for all of my coatings needs.”

  • “I’ve had the pleasure working with Pennsylvania Coatings over the last 10+ yrs with nothing but exceptional results. The interactions and work product from estimating and dealing with Rob Gorney have not only helped in landing projects but have always been competitive and responsible. Their field personnel are not only timely and professional but provide an outstanding work product. Regardless of the project type, location or size, PA Coatings have always been willing and able to help. I would not hesitate recommending them on any project and look forward to continuing our relationship for many years to come.”

  • “I have had the pleasure of working with PA Coatings for over 7 years while I have been with multiple General Contractors and held multiple positions from Project Manager to Estimator. From one GC to the next, they have always provided exceptional services from the office staff to the field painters. No matter the job size, they provide the manpower as needed to get the job done and continue to execute quality work within the project’s budget and schedule. PA Coating’s office staff is very professional, but also offer a customer/client friendly approach that conveys that they truly care about the project’s needs. They are always just a phone call away and more than willing to help with any questions, concerns, or other ideas to make the project overall successful. No matter where my career in the Construction Market will take me, I know that I can trust and rely on PA Coatings to be the right company for the job!”

  • “I wanted to take a quick moment and thank you personally, for the quality & service Pennsylvania Coatings consistently provides. Pennsylvania Coatings is one of the select and unfortunately rare group of subcontractors that routinely exceeds expectations. Pennsylvania Coatings consistently shows the perseverance and integrity to complete projects despite the inevitable complications that present themselves in our industry. Additionally, your crews are always pleasant and easy to work with. You should be proud of the organization you have created. I look forward to working with your team again.”
