Protective Coating Specialists, Inc. celebrates 50 years

Located in Appleton, Protective Coating Specialists, Inc. is a turnkey contractor specializing in resinous epoxy flooring, high-performance wall coatings, polished concrete and concrete sealing for industrial, commercial and residential projects.

The company has been recognized by industry leading suppliers as one of the top-echelon installers in the country with awards such as contractor of the year, premier partner, elite installer and master installer.

Established in 1968 by Harry Sitzberger, the company is very proud to be a family-owned business. Harry, who passed away in 2001, instilled the belief in his son — second-generation owner Steve Sitzberger — and all of his employees to “treat every job as if it was your own.”

Based on that philosophy, Protective Coating Specialists’ team completes more than 200 jobs and installs about 1 million square feet of concrete coating per year. Working with end users or general contractors, their team has the capability to complete everything from small projects to large multimillion-dollar projects throughout the United States.

Protective Coating Specialists serves multiple industries, including food and beverage, pharmaceutical, health care, education, aviation, heavy manufacturing and municipalities. The business also serves many Fortune 500 companies.

Over the years, Protective Coating Specialists’ investment in its employees has been a critical part of the business’ success. The installation crews are trained and certified to install various resinous flooring systems. Protective Coating Specialists believes that having craftsmen who are OSHA 10 safety trained is critical to employee and jobsite safety. Steve’s philosophy of using the best products, finding and investing in the best employees and equipment — along with market diversification — has led to the business’s continued growth and success.

Protective Coating Specialists is committed to being your best choice for a specialty contractor when it comes to epoxy resinous floor and wall coating and polished concrete application.
