Rust-Oleum leaders are marking the opening of the company’s new 110,000 square foot floor coating manufacturing facility.
Unofficially dubbed the “Flooring Center of Excellence,” the plant produces flooring products for the DIY market under RockSolid and for the industrial market under Seal-Krete High Performance, Rust-Oleum Concrete Saver and Citadel branded products.
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.”
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. It is a way 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, the new plant brings jobs, growth and optimism to an ever-expanding industrial region. Nearly 50 employees work at the site located at 10301 Xylon Ave. N. Suite 190 Brooklyn Park, MN 55445.
