Company 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)
  • 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

Just a quick note to thank you once again for the terrific job you did with our courts this spring. Over the past 15 years we have enjoyed the relationship with you and Copeland Coating, and have come to trust your judgement and expertise. You have always communicated timely with us, finished your work ahead of schedule, and the quality of work is impeccable.

We look forward to many more years together – see you at Tri-State.

Mark Newfield Owner/Director, Iroquois Springs

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.

Marc Honigfeld Trail's End Camp

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.

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.

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.
