Buddy Rhodes Concrete Products will also continue to offer cements, CSA, pozzolans, shrinkage reducers, set delay, fibers, polymer, sealers, tools and other related products through its dealer network around the world.
Buddy Rhodes, Jon Schuler and Jeremy French, who have been key contributors to the success of the Buddy Rhodes brand over the last several years, will continue working with Smooth-On to develop and move the brand forward. Smooth-On’s Ernie Dojack has been designated brand manager.

We have been making dry blend formulations across different chemistries since 1895 and will integrate the Buddy Rhodes line of dry blend concrete products into our new facility”. Smooth-On moved into a new 370,000 square foot facility in 2015 and will dedicate an entire wing of its production facility to producing Buddy Rhodes products.
