San Diego, CA (May 6, 2011) – Rhino Linings Corporation (“Rhino”), a global provider of protective polyurethane, polyurea, polyaspartic and epoxy coatings is excited to announce the acquisition of Concrete Solutions, Inc. (“Concrete Solutions”), a leading manufacturer and distributor of products and systems for the restoration, protection and beautification of concrete surfaces.

“This acquisition strengthens our commitment to be one of the leading concrete coatings solution providers by expanding our current product line and offering the best products available.” said Pierre Gagnon, President and CEO of Rhino Linings Corporation. “With the expanded use of concrete in both the residential and commercials markets, we want to take a leadership position in the concrete restoration business.”
As concrete ages, it deteriorates, resulting in stained, cracked, chipped and porous concrete surfaces. Concrete Solutions has been a leader in the concrete resurfacing industry since 1986 and have spent the last two decades developing products and systems to restore and resurface concrete to its original condition while also providing customers with a more decorative solution. The durable and user friendly products Concrete Solutions offers are commonly used on driveways, patios, indoor floors, steps and pool decks and also have extraordinary results in stadiums, amusement parks, hotels and small businesses.
Concrete Solutions will relocate its operations to the Rhino facilities in San Diego, California and Bart Sadleir their current General Manager of Operations and Training, will oversee the Concrete Solutions™ division as General Manager. “I am very excited to be working with Rhino Linings. Combining our technology and expertise strengthens our ability to provide high-quality products to our current and future business relationships.”
