Polycoat Products was established in 1979 in South El Monte, a city located in Los Angeles County. At that time, Polycoat was involved in manufacturing coatings used for pedestrian and vehicular decks and caulking tubes. The original deck was titled Polydeck 200 and utilized PC-220 and Polyglaze as their main components. Its main customers were located in Southern California but aspirations to sell on the West Coast were forming. Polycoat is proud to state that many of those customers that were present at that time still purchase material from Polycoat, highlighting our commitment to customer service. The original building encompassed approximately 3,000 square feet of warehousing and manufacturing, and a total of three offices. The manufacturing equipment included a main reactor of 350 gallons.
During the same time in the early 1980’s, Laxmi C. Gupta, current president of Polycoat Products, was working at a local manufacturing company where he was refining his polymer skills. After several years, Lax decided to put his entrepreneurship and business skills to work when he founded American Polymers Corporation, a California Corporation, and acquired Polycoat Products in December of 1984. His vision for Polycoat Products was to make it a leading manufacturer of polyurethane & polyurea coatings and elastomers. The first year was a difficult one, with many “challenges” to overcome, but this only served to strengthen the company’s focus on its strengths of manufacturing and development of superior coatings. During this time, Lax had a staff of eight employees, which included his wife and three children.
