As Nycote celebrates its 60th year of manufacturing Nycote coatings, we look back through our company’s history to see how far we’ve come.
“It’s impossible to know where you’re going if you don’t understand where you came from” says Marcie W. Simpson, President & COO Nycote Laboratories Corporation.
Company founder Lloyd Washburn purchased the formula in September 1957 from an engineer with whom he shared a building in one of the aerospace industrial complexes in Los Angeles, California. The discovery that nylon could be delivered on a substrate as a thin lightweight protective film was considered a revolutionary concept and today is still considered a unique process.
Nycote continues to grow and is currently rolling out a new product, Nycote 99 EcoShield. As the name suggests, this product will be the next generation family of products for Nycote.
