Our History

Copeland Coating Company is located at 3600 US Route 20 in Nassau, New York, just East of Albany, New York. The Copeland family has been in business since 1945 manufacturing, distributing and applying recreational surfacing products and pavement coating systems.

We are the oldest surviving running track installer in the United States, having installed our first polyurethane bound track surface in Syracuse, New York in 1980. The site was chosen that year to host the National Sports Festival, an olympic qualifying track and field event.

For over 50 years the Copeland’s have been delivering outstanding quality at a fair value in a very timely manner to meet the needs of architects, contractors and owners. Our service and customers support are a few of the reasons for our longevity, continued success and reputation.

We are an anomaly in the athletic surfacing business because we manufacture as well as install. Years of field testing and improving our own products have afforded us the confidence that comes with knowing that our materials are superior to the competition. There is no substitute for experience and we have utilized that experience to perfect our surface systems and installation procedures.

Areas of expertise include the installation of:

  • Action Track Synthetic Running Track Surfaces
  • Action Play Poured In Place Playground Safety Surfaces
  • Indoor and Outdoor Poured In Place Recreational Coating Systems
  • Action Pave 100% Acrylic Color Surfaces (Tennis, Basketball, Hockey and Other Play Surfaces)
  • Premier Court Synthetic Resilient Tennis Surfaces
  • Action Pave Coal Tar Pavement Coating Systems (and related pavement maintenance services)
Copeland Coating is excited to announce it’s continued partnership with USTA Eastern for it’s fourth consecutive year.

The Copeland Coating Company has been successfully maintaining all of the sport surfaces at the Rocking Horse Ranch Resort for over 20 years (which is a testimony unto itself).

At each winter’s end, we contemplate the complete overhaul of our 40 year old exterior tennis courts , the crew at Copeland manages the near impossible in extending the life of these courts for yet another full season with their time tested re-coating process.

We maintain a high profile family resort that earns the prestigious 3 Diamond Travel Award every year. It is critical that wherever our guests are on our 500 acre facility, they experience an extremely well maintained, family friendly resort property.

Thank you Copeland Coating for being part of our facility management team.

I have had the privilege of working closely with Copeland Coating Company over the years in the development of our tennis facilities at Saratoga Springs High School and Middle School.

I have always found them to be easy to work with during and after the completion of their work. They were always available to advise when needed. They are the best at what they do and I highly recommend them!

It is my pleasure to recommend the services of Copland Coating. During the past fifteen years, we have worked with Copland on numerous projects. These projects included resurfacing our twelve tennis courts as well.

Copland offers top-notch quality, service and rates. They have demonstrated their attention to detail and skill. When it comes to applying recreational surfaces, I cannot think of a better company to work with. I would highly recommend Copland for the job and look forward to working with them in the future.

Track & Field has always been a major part of my life.  I was an athlete from a young age growing up in New York and now a Master official and high school track & field coach.  Never did I imagine that I would have the ability and opportunity to build a track & field facility.

Every detail was planned carefully.  It was very important to me to choose the correct workers and companies that would make my dream a reality.  Most of the workers were local with many being Bethel track & field alumni and families.  When it came to choosing a track surfacing company, the choices were many, but one significantly stood out from the rest….Action Track Surfacing.

My first meeting with Steve Hinding & Doug Stone left me with an impression of honesty and commitment, as well as superior knowledge and expertise.   They listened carefully to my desires and needs. They offered suggestions and a well organized plan to accomplish my goal.  They were as concerned with completing a high quality track facility as I was.  Every question was met with a timely answer.  There were no hidden costs.  The project was completed in the contracted budget with no surprises.  Their crews worked perfectly with in the time table.  They were clean, hard working and professional…even to the point of cutting a slot drain on their hands and knees to meet the desired design!  Steve has been back several times to check the quality of his work.  Action Track has made sure that I am completely satisfied with the project.  

 Each day I arrive at the facility it takes my breath away.  The beautiful 8 lane track, javelin runway, and sealed walkways, all completed by Action Track Surfacing, have given my team and the town of Bethel a first class track & field facility!  I would highly recommend their services for all track & field surfacing needs.

Camp Seneca Lake has been in business for over 30 years and we have used hundreds of vendors over the years. Copeland Coatings is by far one of the most reliable companies we have ever dealt with. The standard of their work is top notch and they are a pleasure to work with. We look forward to many more years of completing great projects together!

Over the past 20 years our camps have worked with Copeland Coating to meet our surfacing needs. Steve and the team at Copeland have consistently exceeded expectation in helping to recondition our sport courts and to build new facilities including our hockey rink and tennis courts. I highly recommend them and look forward to working with Copeland in the future.

I would like it to be known that Copeland Coating is a wonderful company to do business with. I am the Head Tennis Coach at Bard College and have had dealings with Copeland in the person of Steve Puzio over these past 20 years. We have used Copeland as our “got to” company for all our court needs. Our six courts have been resurfaced twice. Steve was involved personally from start to completion both times. He came first to advise and determine our needs, followed by a quote.

He made himself accessible always and we eagerly walked the job after the courts dried to insure our total satisfaction. Copeland allowed us to commit to an acceptable time frame for the job. We were always treated respectfully and fairly. Their many years of experience proved invaluable as their advice was always “spot on”. I feel that they are the best in the business. I am sure you will agree.

Copeland coating goes the extra coating when it comes to great customer service. For 12 years it’s been a straight set victory for our member tennis courts!
