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)
  • Tyre Grip Multipurpose High Friction Pavement Surface Systems (roadways, walkways, drives)
  • Imprint Full Depth Colored Synthetic Surface Systems (aesthetic applications for pedestrian crosswalks, urban regeneration or traffic calming)
Copeland Coating is excited to announce it’s continued partnership with USTA Eastern for it’s third consecutive year.

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.

the way you respond to us, whether it is to provide an in-depth review of
existing conditions, prepare cost estimates or ensure a surfacing project moves
swiftly and smoothly from start to finish. We breathe easier when you are on
the job and we will continue to recommend Copeland Coating to our Clients for
quality and timely work.

Camp Starlight has been dealing with Copeland Coating for many years. We have used Copeland for all of our sports courts including tennis, basketball, and gymnasium surfaces. The work has always been of a very high quality and they have always been very responsive to any of our requests. Even in times of inclement weather Copeland has always worked overtime to get the job completed on schedule. I would have no hesitation in recommending Copeland Coating to any camp.

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.

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.

Vassar College has experienced a very good working relationship with Copeland Coating during the past 8 years. We currently have 3 separate tiers of courts consisting of; 6 varsity courts in the north tier, 3 campus use courts in the center tier and 4 campus/local community use courts in the south tier.

Copeland management and their front line crew have always responded in a timely manner and have worked under very tight schedules to prepare our courts for the fall tennis season. They reconfigured our center tier from 4 to 3 doubles courts per a request from the tennis coaching staff with excellent results and have coated our south tier courts in a manner that will lengthen the useful life even though major renovation work is clearly needed.
I can confidently recommend Copeland Coating for tennis court re-coating and overall renovation work and should add that they are very competitive in their pricing.
