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 Finisher of Choice in our target markets through industry-leading reliability, value-added services, and convenience for our customers. In doing so, we will continue to grow, increase market share, and meet the financial goals of our shareholders and associates.
