Behind a nondescript series of buildings on Starkey Rd., in Largo, FL, Concrete Technology, Inc., has been bringing a high tech sheen to a low tech industry, using state of the art engineering and chemistry to attack the world of unsightly concrete.
Concrete Technology, Inc., or “CTI,” began its operations in Largo, Florida in December of 1991. CTI’s founder, Kevin Rosenberger, was a craftsman in the coatings industry for years prior, installing river rock coatings in the Tampa Bay area. Mr. Rosenberger experienced numerous problems with the longevity of those coatings and set out to find a long lasting solution for a market that he saw as having huge potential. He began experimenting with acrylic cement coatings in the mid 1980’s and after numerous lab and field tests began marketing a formulation of acrylics and resins that offered a superior coating for concrete surfaces.
CTI started providing their coatings in 1991
CTI’s business philosophy has always been to provide the highest quality coatings available, coupled with in-depth initial training and ongoing support. To distribute their products and provide service to the public, CTI looked for qualified people across the country who wanted to establish their own small businesses to start representing the CTI product line. CTI found an overwhelming acceptance of its products and the business began with a jump start, exploding onto the scene in its early years. By the end of 1996, CTI had blossomed to over 200 Dealers nationwide with representation in 10 countries. In 1997, with over 400 Dealers across the United States and representation in a number of foreign countries, CTI was honored by INC Magazine with its “INC 500” designation, as one of America’s fastest growing, privately held companies.
CTI prides itself on being the leader of the acrylic cement coatings industry. In addition, CTI has established a network of the finest trained Dealers in the market today. Our Dealers operate small, easy to start businesses across the world and pride themselves on providing their customers with the highest quality products available, applied through the finest installations possible

Sonny Restivo-Distributor Southeast Division
I bought my CTi dealership back in 1998. I started the business with my dad and brother-in-law. We received a CTi marketing postcard in the mail that caught our attention. We all decided to fly to Largo, Florida to see what CTi was all about. Just a few minutes of talking with Kevin, Chuck, and Brad at the home office we loved what we were hearing. After day one of training and working firsthand with the product, we were sold.
In our first year as a Dealer with CTi, we worked out of a small Isuzu pickup truck. Our sales doubled every year and by 2002 we became our area's largest volume dealer. In 2003 I purchased the CTi distributorship for Louisiana, Alabama, Tennessee, and Mississippi, and for the past 19 years I have had the opportunity train and help others like myself be successful in the decorative concrete industry. I look forward to building a relationship with you and seeing how far you can take the CTi opportunity.
