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…]

Polyguard: TERM® All Pest Bath Trap Barrier: My PMP “Product of the Day”

TERM™ Bath Trap BarrierOctober 28, 2015 – MyPMP.net

The TERM All Pest Bath Trap Barrier is installed after the concrete slab is poured and rough plumbing is complete. The non-chemical barrier blocks termites, fire ants, rats, mice and moles from entry through bath traps (blockouts) in a slab. The components include TERM Particle Barrier, liquid adhesive/primer, TERM 018 Micro Mesh Barrier, TERM Flashing Barrier and TERM Sealant Barrier. Although the system blocks pests, the porous nature of its components allows water to drain from the bath area into the base below. Under normal circumstances, application of pesticides to the bath trap area should be unnecessary during the life of the structure, and no maintenance should be required. [Click Here]

May 2015 – Texas Monthly “Termite Protection Without Pesticides”

TX Monthly 5-15May 2015 – Texas Monthly

Each year, termites cost home and business owners in the U.S. $30 billion in damages. As a result, homeowners spend up to $5 billion annually to take on the seemingly never-ending battle of fighting termite infestation throughout the life of a structure, which has many homeowners looking for a sustainable solution that does not involve using poisonous chemicals around their home. This devastating trend, combined with homeowners’ concerns over children and pets being exposed to poisonous chemicals, prompted Polyguard Products in Ennis, Texas, working with Texas A&M, to seek a better alternative—a way to keep termites out of a home without pesticides.
