"This recognition represents years of dedication to quality, innovation, outstanding customer service, and just plain hard work. Especially in 2020, it took the whole team working harder than ever under extraordinary circumstances to have our best year ever during a time that was challenging for so many other businesses," said David Warren, President of Black Diamond Coatings. "While other companies had to streamline and furlough workers, we were able to nearly double the size of our team after moving into a new manufacturing facility with almost 13,000 additional square feet of space."

Black Diamond Coatings adds this prestigious recognition to a growing list of recent achievements, including inclusion in two 2021 Tampa Bay Business Journal Lists: the "Largest Veteran-Owned Businesses in Tampa Bay" and the "Largest Manufacturers in Tampa Bay."

Years ago, we were the first manufacturer of hardscape sealer and polymeric sand to begin selling direct-to-consumer online; now we're ready to bring the same innovative spirit and commitment to performance into a brand new product category," said company VP Heather Warren. "We expect our OBSESS line of cleaning products to deliver exceptional growth for Black Diamond Coatings going into 2022."
