Surface Shields leading brands, Builder Board, Dust Shield Pro and Carpet Shield have made us the company of choice in the construction, flooring, painting, RV, moving, hardware and retail markets. Our commitment to Distributors, Dealers and Retailers has allowed us to build an expansive network of long term business relationships.


A message from our President summarizes the excitement and beliefs that we all share at Surface Shields:


"Our Surface Shields team views this acquisition of Filmtech as a great way to jump start 2013. We hope our Distributors share our excitement in knowing that this combination of companies will enhance growth opportunities with them. Our iconic shield logo symbolizes market strength and we know this acquisition punctuates that strength and security for our customers."
