PC is founded and incorporated by Jack Long with the main product being concrete stucco that would be sprayed onto buildings to help waterproof and seal them.
Jack Long invents PC-7 in his basement by using the epoxy to fill cracks and voids in walls and floors. At this time, the product does not have a name.
PC-7 is created and released on the market after initial success with selling the product to tradesmen and contractors through word-of-mouth.
Jack perfects the epoxy after 7 attempts to make the product exactly what he wanted. The name PC-7 is born!
The first PC-7 Crazy Bottle Display is created. This is PC's 1st point of purchase display.
After Steve, Jack’s oldest son, got home from active duty in Vietnam, he began working for Protective Coating, officially making PC a family business.
Jack Long presents a Sales Award to ‘the last Wagon Jobber.’
