Company History

In 1981, our founder Ralph Newman started Newstripe in his Aurora, Colorado garage with an innovative product called the “Scotsman.” It was a small, cost-effective paint striping machine with a simple hand pump. Additional Scotsman models soon followed and sales took off. We outgrew the garage and moved into a dedicated warehouse in Aurora (still our home today).

To keep pace with demand, we continued to design, manufacturer, and sell bigger and faster striping machines and expanded into ancillary products like our PolyTough Stencils with a lifetime warranty, paint, and other supplies.

In 1990, Newstripe purchased the rights to the Rollmaster 1000 and expanded the product line to include the RollMaster 5000, a higher volume machine that’s a popular choice for large parking lot, factory, and warehouse striping jobs.

While our stripers were primarily used for pavement and floors, we discovered they also worked well on athletic fields and we started developing products specifically for field maintenance. This included the successful NewRider 1700 and NewRider 5000 Field Line Striping Machines, and a line of baseball infield grooming equipment (Dirt Doctor, Dirt Medic, Nail Drag, Drag King and Drag Lite).

When asked by a large industrial customer for help, we developed the Big Squeeze Pail Crusher, Pack-Master Waste Compactors, and the popular AeroVent line of aerosol can disposal systems.

In 2015, we acquired the Airless Paint Pump Division of Campbell-Hausfeld and quickly integrated their advanced pump technology into our high-pressure paint striping machines.

Last year (2020) was a big one for Newstripe with the launch of our LineRider UTV Athletic Line Striper that slides directly into the most popular UTVs on the market to create one of the least expensive riding stripers on the market. We also developed the LineRider GPS+ and NewRider GPS, two exciting new GPS-guided stripers that set the bar for field striping speed, accuracy, and efficiency.

Throughout our 40+ year history, Newstripe has stayed true to our core values of product innovation, quality local manufacturing, and excellent customer service.
