Developing and manufacturing innovative products
for construction since 1975.
1975 – Company found to produce new technology of fiberglass reinforced structural cement
1980 – Introduces crystalline water entry protection system to US market
1992 – Develops performance/color matching system for natural stone
1995 – Contributor to Army Corp REMR program
1997 – Builds new facility to house manufacturing, R&D and corporate offices
1997 – Introduces radically new water based technology for corrosion protection of imbedded steel
1998 – Introduces new water-based technology for long-open-time bonding primer for concrete
2000 – Introduces color matching for natural stone, Terracotta and concrete that allows trained applicators to accomplish color matching at the job site.
2003 – Builds new plant to expand capacity
2003 – Introduces highly breathable mineral silicate paint for concrete that can not peel
2006 – Introduces new technology high performance water repellant for concrete and masonry
2009 – Complete a three year effort to develop a crack resistant repair mortar for the U.S. Navy incorporating technology new to concrete and utilizing a high percentage of recycled materials.
2011 – Introduced the micro injection grout in an array of colors to match stone, cast stone, concrete and terracotta substrates.
2012 – MARC (Mid-Atlantic Resource Center) opened in Baltimore MD. Facility created to provide “hands-on” training for architects, engineers and trades people. Facility also offers custom matching for Stone Repair Mortars, repointing mortars, injection grout and coatings.
2013 – Bow facility doubled in size to meet increasing demand for powders and liquid products
2014 – Introduced “Repoint”, a color matched repointing mortar available in small and large quantities.
2015 – Construction begins for twelve new silos and a new production line added to the Bow facility. When complete the a total of twenty silos will add siginicantly to our production capabilities.
2016 – Introduce ISR (Internal Stress Relief) technology for concrete repair materials. Ground breaking technology developed for the U. S. Navy to eliminate cracking in repair mortars.
