Polyguard Records 25th Consecutive Year of Sales Growth

ENNIS, TX – Polyguard Products Inc. announced this week that 2017 marked its 25th consecutive year of top line sales growth for the company.

“This streak rivals any that I know in the business world,” President Shawn Eastham said. “This is a credit to our diversity, the quality of our manufacturing practices and, most importantly, the employee owners who take so much pride in the work they do every day.”

Polyguard’s streak began in 1992 and has withstood the financial ups and downs of the various markets Polyguard serves, including several nationwide recessions. The leadership in place at Polyguard credits this to several factors that make Polyguard a unique company, highlighted in the company tagline: Employee Owned. Innovation Based. Expect More.

“Employee owners, historically, take a greater sense of pride in what they do, more responsibility for the overall health of the company, and there’s a system of checks and balances that keeps everyone working for the good of the entire company,” CEO John Muncaster, who has been the head of the company since the mid-1980s.

As a result of these increased sales, Polyguard more than doubled its manufacturing capabilities by moving the majority of its manufacturing facility to Corsicana, Texas to keep up with demand.

Founded in 1953, Polyguard Products specializes in products which protect surfaces and structures from moisture, water, or other undesired substances. Polyguard is an industry leader in the production of self-adhesive protective coatings for engineering and construction.

Polyguard Records 24th Consecutive Year of Sales Growth

ENNIS, TX – Polyguard Products Inc. announced that 2016 will mark its 24th consecutive year of top line sales growth for the company.

“Polyguard’s 24-year string of top line sales growth increases was certainly not a goal,” CEO John Muncaster said. “It started in 1992, and at that point Polyguard was just trying to survive the early 1990s recession and the fire which has destroyed our plant, lab, and offices two years before.”

“We don’t know of any firm who can match this 24-year string of consecutive sales growth. As to ‘why’, the answer is clear to us. Polyguard’s tagline is ‘innovation based…. employee owned…. expect more’. Our constant stream of innovative products, and our ‘above and beyond’ employee owners, are the reasons for the constant growth.”

Muncaster said Polyguard is looking forward to hitting a landmark by increasing sales yet again in 2017.

“A string of increases in sales growth may not have been a Polyguard goal in 1992, but it is a goal in 2017, because a 2017 increase will give us a full quarter century of consecutive sales growth.”

Founded in 1953, Polyguard Products specializes in products which protect surfaces and structures from moisture, water, or other undesired substances. Polyguard is an industry leader in the production of self-adhesive protective coatings for engineering and construction. [Read More…]
