Company History

Copeland Coating & Sport Surfaces 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)
  • Multipurpose High Friction Pavement Surface Systems (roadways, walkways, drives)
  • Porous Pave (aesthetic applications for pedestrian crosswalks, urban regeneration)
Imagine installing a product as friendly to install as an asphalt based beautifier with a lot of the same strengths as a coal tar based sealer.   Action-Pave LP Base Sealer

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.

We’ve been working with Copeland Coating for the past 20 years and never once have they disappointed us. The window of time with which they have to work with seems to shrink each year based on colder and wetter winters, yet each year they somehow figure out how to complete their work on time, and to perfection. The staff at Copeland are great to work with and I highly recommend them to anyone looking for top quality workmanship.

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.
