Our Story

Founded in 1945, Dalton Enterprises, Inc. is a family owned business. We are based in Cheshire, CT and have satellite manufacturing / distribution locations throughout the country: CT, GA, CA and IN. Dalton’s recreational coatings division began making acrylic paints for tennis/basketball courts and running tracks…and installing / applying the coatings as well from our construction team! We have been able to continually meet the demands of court owners by upgrading and launching new coatings. With the advent of pickleball we launched our PLUSH® line which is formulated to accommodate the high degree of pivoting required when playing pickleball. Our Plush® line includes a full arsenal of primer, repair, acrylic resurfacer and paint for both asphalt and concrete Pickleball (tennis, basketball too) courts.
