Rust-Oleum opens floor coating manufacturing facility in Minnesota
Unofficially dubbed the “Flooring Center of Excellence,” the plant produces flooring products for the DIY market and for the industrial market. Located in Brooklyn Park, Minnesota, it doubles the size of their previous facility. “We were bursting at the seams,” said Ben Sieben, Brand Director for flooring. “From concept to production, it all happens in this state-of-the-art facility – and we have room to grow.”
R&D lab and concrete coating training center
The location also features a 5,000 square foot R&D lab along with a concrete coating training center for contractors. As a way to showcase product options, the office has more than 30 different decorative and industrial coatings on its interior floors to show customers and vendors how the products perform under real conditions. Strategically located in one of the fastest growing suburbs for industry in the greater Minneapolis/St. Paul area, nearly 50 employees work at the site.
