Glitsa: Decades of Unmatched Quality and Performance
Glitsa floor finishing products have evolved through a rich history and we at Glitsa are proud to share our story with you. The Gold Seal Swedish system was first developed in Sweden in the early 1950s. Boasting superior wear-resistance and a stunning depth of clarity, the Swedish finish system quickly became the popular choice for discriminating hardwood craftsman throughout Sweden. In 1956 Glitsa migrated to the United States via an enterprising immigrant contractor. Shortly thereafter Seattle craftsman and entrepreneur Ed Hodgson took over the Swedish line and founded the Glitsa company in Seattle, Washington where fine Glitsa products are still manufactured today under our flagship Rudd Company, a name synonymous with quality in the coatings and wood finishing industry. Widely known for our signature Gold Seal System Swedish finish, the Glitsa brand has grown through the years to include quality, eco-friendly waterbornes, performance-tested oil-modified polyurethane finishes, as well as superior stains and maintenance products. In keeping with our tradition of unsurpassed quality and innovation, we at Glitsa continue to evolve. Integrating cutting-edge research & development and exhaustive testing ensures the Glitsa name will persist in offering professional contractors and homeowners the very finest wood floor finishing products available.
