Arlington-based Sundek has been the premier network of contractors and manufacturer of quality decorative concrete products since 1970. Sundek’s products resurface existing concrete areas and transform them into functional, durable, cost-effective and eyecatching creations. It’s Sundek that can be found on everything from your back patio or garage floor to the concrete pool decks from St. Thomas to the White House.
In 1982, Sundek’s CEO Charlie Plunk started a contracting company, ATD Concrete Coatings, and it is still Dallas-Fort Worth’s authorized Sundek dealer. After becoming the CEO in 1999, he was able to convince President Mark Stambaugh to make the move to the Metroplex. What began as a small family business in Southern California has blossomed since its move to Arlington. The Arlington Corporate Office employs 30 people, and its network of exclusive dealers employs approximately 300 nationwide.
This year, Sundek expanded its warehouse and office space on Avenue H and continues to build out its manufacturing operations to keep up with demand.
Projects such as the pool deck renovations at the YMCA on South Davis St., the Gaylord Texan in Grapevine, and garage surfaces for car collectors at Garages of Texas in Plano have helped to establish Sundek as the leader in the Metroplex. The American Society of Concrete Contractors’ sister organization, the Decorative Concrete Council, has presented Sundek with 21 awards over the last 6 years at the World of Concrete in Las Vegas. This recognition has helped Sundek expand its reach to international locations such as the US Naval Base in Bahrain and a police training school in Venezuela.
“After 16 years, we know we made the right decision to call Arlington home and the base of our operation,” says Plunk. “The proximity to Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport allows our dealers to attend training events as well as our annual convention. It also affords us the opportunity to strengthen those relationships as well as those in the community.”
