The PoloPlaz Story

Our Story

PoloPlaz began in the early 1960s as National Coatings Co. The founder of the company had been employed during the 1950s in research and development at Union Carbide. During this period, Union Carbide spent considerable resources developing the polyurethane technology that had emerged during World War II.

The company prospered as a small business until the founder became ill and could no longer manage it. Mac Hogan took the reins in 1988, building the company into a leader in hardwood floor finishing in North America. Since then, millions of dollars have been invested into new products, facilities and equipment to keep National Coatings on the cutting edge of finish technology.

In 2002, Chad Baker came on board as the new president of National Coatings, working alongside Mac to continue advancing and expanding products, techniques and technology. He plays an integral role in the day-to-day operations, as well as in guiding PoloPlaz’s future.

PoloPlaz was the trade name of the National Coatings products. Over the years, more and more customers began referring to the company by the brand name, so, in 2006, National Coatings officially became known as PoloPlaz.

Unlike nearly all other finish companies – which purchase all or some of their products from contract or toll manufacturers – PoloPlaz products are all made in-house from proprietary formulations. This approach ensures that PoloPlaz products are designed specifically for the intended application, and that quality can be maintained to higher standards.
