Dayton Superior Corporation is a global[1] company serving the nonresidential concrete construction industry.[2] Dayton Superior has four main product lines of Concrete Accessories, Chemicals, Forming, and Paving with 117 patents for such products.[3] The headquarters is in Miamisburg, Ohio.[4] There are 30 other office/warehouse locations throughout the US, Canada, Colombia, and Panama.[5][6]

History[edit]

Dayton Sure-Grip & Shore[7] was founded in 1924[8]by Art & Carl Kinnenger with help from Charles Danis and Fred Kramer. Carl Kinnenger held the patent on the snap tie design (to hold formwork together) and Dayton Sure-Grip & Shore was licensed to sell it in the U.S. out of their Downtown Dayton location.

In 1953, Danis Hunt Construction acquired Dayton Sure-Grip. After beginning bar support production in 1959, Sure-Grip, Inc is founded in 1960,[7] and the company relocated to Miamisburg, Ohio. In 1975, Dayton Sure-Grip purchased C&M Chemical Co. out of Sycamore, Illinois, beginning their production of chemicals.[9] After the purchase of Superior Concrete Accessories in 1982, the company changed their name to Dayton Superior Corporation.[10]

A series of acquisitions followed, leading to international expansion[11] (purchased Superior Concrete Accessories of Toronto and Cogan Wire Company of Montreal), and the purchase of Symons Corporation.[12] Symons specialized in form systems, and manufactured shoring, formliners, and chemicals, drastically expanding Dayton Superior's number of products offered.[13]

In 2006, Dayton Superior went public (NASDAQ: DSUP).[14] The stint in the public markets did not last long, as the company filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy.[15] The company emerged from bankruptcy later that year with significantly less debt[16][17] and a new capital management group in Oaktree Capital Management.[18] The company then relocated to its current headquarters in Miamisburg, Ohio in 2010[4]
