Fred Ritter – Vice-President

My partner Tom Machak, I started Specialty Coatings Inc. in December of 1989 in Norfolk. We began with just Tom, & myself doing all of the work, mainly painting for the first 2 years or so. After those first 2 years we had saved up enough money in the bank to feel comfortable in hiring our first employee, & off we went. We found our niche in the fire & water damage insurance re-construction industry, & also, the interior & exterior re-painting of residential, & commercial buildings, & painting of new construction commercial buildings. We have grown from a firm belief in
providing a high quality product, & making customer service our priority, another words, doing what we say we are going to do, when we say we are going to do it. Over the years, by doing this it has earned us one of the highest ratings a company can achieve from the Better Business Bureau.


We are current members of the BBB, & the Hampton Roads Chamber of Commerce.

We have two Landa pressure washers. Here is a little bit of information about them.

Quality: Landa, with its state-of-the-art factory, was among the first pressure washer manufacturers to be certified to the internationally recognized ISO-9001 quality standards and has earned a number of quality achievement awards. Landa is famous for its craftsmanship and ruggedness including high-pressure pumps backed by a 7-year warranty and extra-efficient heating coils.

Safety: Landa was the first pressure washer manufacturer to certify its entire product line to the rigid UL-1776 safety standards and has built into every piece of equipment a variety of safety devices to provide maximum protection to the operator and owner. Landa’s “ETL listing” means that you can rest assured that you and your employees are operating equipment that is proven to be safe to use.

Innovation: Landa’s reputation for innovation is legendary in the pressure washer industry. From the slide-out service platform and award-winning spinning spray bar for aqueous parts washers to wireless remote control of a pressure washer up to 300 feet away, Landa set the standard, then raised the bar for every other cleaning equipment manufacturer in North America.

You can depend on Techsource Enterprises Inc., to properly maintain your property for years to come.
