Ohio (PRUnderground) September 25th, 2014
A Northwest Ohio company has recently begun a multimillion-dollar expansion due to sales growth and acquisitions. The Concrete Protector, a decorative concrete business, made the move to their new corporate headquarters in the previous Fifth Third Bank building in downtown Wapakoneta. “Purchasing and renovating a new headquarters was a huge challenge that took plenty of manpower and money to pull off but was essential to accommodate our explosive growth,” commented Joe Quick, president of the company.
The Concrete Protector was started in 2009 when, after attending a decorative concrete training event, Joe Quick and his brother L. J. decided to start a decorative concrete installation company. They had been in business for the previous three years with a commercial pressure washing company, focusing on washing exterior concrete for commercial stores and restaurants, such as Wal-Mart and Cracker Barrel. It made great sense to not just clean the concrete but to protect, repair, and design it… to transform concrete, making it beautiful, and in the process, save it from the destruction of freeze/thaw cycles, salt damage, and harsh environmental elements.
In April 2011, The Concrete Protector began developing a full line of affordable, environmentally friendly chemicals to make existing concrete look like wood floors, marble, tile, granite, slate, and more for significantly less than the cost of these other materials. In the time since The Concrete Protector started, decorative concrete has exploded into a multi-billion dollar industry. Contractors in many states and multiple foreign countries have started using The Concrete Protector’s chemicals.
The continued growth led to their recent 2-million-dollar acquisition and relocation of a 25-year-old Indiana Company, Sani-tred. Sani-tred manufactures a permanent do-it-yourself home waterproofing solution that has been used by over 100,000 homeowners. “We felt this acquisition was a perfect way to expand into a complementary market,” Joe Quick noted. But he added, “We really had to expand our facilities to contain the additional staff and equipment.”
