RESIN BARS & TABLETOPS 310-722-GLAS


In 1999 a customer came in to my Surfboard Factory and asked if I could "glass" his bar top like a surfboard. I said, "yes" and AMERICAN BARTOPTM was unknowingly born.

Several years and several thousand surfboards later, through word of mouth a small chain requested epoxy resin coatings for their bar tops & tabletops. "I took on the job and many more that followed, and AMERICAN BARTOPTM thrived. I am proud of the accomplishments of AMERICAN BARTOPTM and never forget what got me there - my roots in surfboard building." 

"The name AMERICAN BARTOPTM came from my grandfather, who came from Greece to America, and started the AMERICAN BAR.  I  added "TOP" to the end and continued the business in honor of his memory."
