60 Years Old and Going Strong

March 17, 2015 1:10 pm

March 17, 2015 – Gaco Western has been building on a legacy of innovation since 1955 when Aubrey Davis founded the company and began selling 4 oz. cans of neoprene coating. Sixty years later, Gaco Western remains family-owned; Gaco products are proudly made in the USA and cover millions of square feet of buildings; the company has earned a trusted reputation in the construction industry.

Gaco’s commitment to research and development is a key contributor to the company’s success. Just a few “firsts” include:

  • First solvent-free silicone coating – GacoFlex S20. Gaco is the recognized global leader in silicone roof coating systems.
  • First single-application, open cell spray foam insulation of its kind that requires no additional ignition barrier – GacoFireStop2.
  • First new construction application for open cell foam to offer consistent quality with no waste, increased yield and reduced labor – GacoProFill SYSTEM. Patent Pending.
In February, the Davis Family and over 200 employees, board members, customers and guests gathered in Waikoloa, Hawaii for the company’s National Sales Meeting and a celebration of Gaco’s 60th Anniversary.

Gaco is not a company to rest on its laurels. At 60 years of age, Gaco is going strong and actively working towards the future and the next of many innovative “firsts”!

Founded in 1955, Gaco Western remains today a family-owned business with its roots in technology and product innovation. The Gaco family of brands offer best-of-class solutions for a variety of commercial, industrial, and residential applications including specialty coatings for roof, pedestrian and traffic decking, and spray polyurethane foam insulation. Products are available throughout the United States; select products are available in Canada and other countries throughout the world.
