THE STORY BEGINS IN 1942…
In 1966, Ed and his son, Waymon, began exploring ways to increase the efficiencies of their marking product manufacturing line. Desires to vertically integrate lead them to investigate internally producing PVC film for roll flagging and stake flags. In 1975, the first sellable pound of vinyl film was extruded by Precision Specialties Company. The vertical integration allowed material formulation changes, which improved the performance characteristics of the stake flags and roll flagging. As the market recognized the company’s ability to produce customized requests, Ed began to recognize a need from surveyors for a more ‘industrial’ roll flagging. To distinguish the new superior grade of roll flagging from the competition, Ed embossed the state of Texas throughout the film. It came to be known as Texas Grade Roll Flagging and today, Texas Roll Flagging remains the preferred choice among professional surveyors.
Many changes occurred at Precision Specialties Company in 1979 such as renaming the company to from PREcision Specialties COmpany to PRESCO and an expansion to sell the Presco extruded vinyl film to other manufacturers and in 1981, Presco landed their first engineered film customer.
In 1987, Waymon relocated the company to Sherman, Texas. The move afforded Presco the opportunity to expand their manufacturing capabilities in an area rich with skilled industrial workers. The community of Sherman continues to provide Presco with wonderful employees who have fueled the growth and success of Presco.
Today, Presco’s manufacturing operations remain in their two facilities in Sherman, TX. These two facilities house three PVC extruders, custom designed marking product machines, and the dedicated, hardworking employees of Presco. The future of Presco is bright and ever changing.
