Rock-Tred was born out of the Depression Era, beginning business in 1939. The company chiseled out its existence by manufacturing concrete resurfacing materials for industrial manufacturing facilities. Rock-Tred's innovative products arrived just in time to help resurface and strengthen floors needed for building the weapons of WWII.
 
Today Rock-Tred continues to manufacturer innovative polymer coating solutions. These materials include floor and wall coatings, flexible membranes, joint sealants and patching compounds. You will find our products in manufacturing plants, biotechnology labs, food and dairy facilities, institutions, commercial outlets, and just about every type of environment you can imagine. Our products are purchased worldwide and our 70-year track record speaks for itself.
