A manufacturer of products that protect surfaces and structures from moisture, water or other undesired substances marked its 25th consecutive year of top-line sales growth in 2017. The management team of Polyguard Products Inc., Ennis, Texas, credits the streak to the company’s diversity, manufacturing practices and its employee owners.

“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,” said CEO John Muncaster, who has been the head of the company since the mid-1980s.

Polyguard’s streak began in 1992 and has withstood the financial ups and downs of the various markets Polyguard serves, including several nationwide recessions. As a result of the increased sales, Polyguard more than doubled its manufacturing capabilities by moving the majority of its manufacturing facility to Corsicana, Texas.
