Linetec was established, by Apogee Enterprises, in 1983 to fulfill a niche the coating of architectural products. There was increased demand by architects for windows of different colors, and hardly anyone was specializing in this area. In Linetec’s development and growth, we have become the nation’s largest architectural paint and anodizing finisher, leveraging our strengths, products and people to deliver the best finish and service to our customers.


We will be the Single Source Solution in our target markets, providing high-performance coatings and value-added services, while delivering industry-leading reliability, exceptional quality and superior service for our customers. In doing so, we will continue to grow, increase market share, and meet the financial goals of our shareholders and associates.
