Florock makes flooring systems for parking garages, manufacturing facilities, hospitals and retail and malls.

Florock, which was acquired in 2016 by the Tennant Company, has been based in Chicago since its founding in 1952. The company has been a family operation since its inception, with David Schmetterer currently leading the firm started by his father, Benjamin A. Schmetterer.

High Performance Flooring Systems

The company’s product lines include concrete epoxy floor resurfacers, high performance topcoats, heavy-duty epoxy wall systems and joints, patching and striping. Among its specialties, the company says, are chemical resistance, slip resistance, low-odor systems, USDA-approved systems and sustainable systems for LEED projects. Applications include parking garages, manufacturing facilities, hospitals and retail and malls.

After 65 years in business, Florock remains in its original neighborhood, south of downtown Chicago, though it has expanded its operations several times. The firm says it maintained its staff and has added members since its acquisition by Tennant.

Florock works with clients in North America and Latin America, as well as the United Kingdom.
