  • 1999
    • WVCO Railroad Division developed the industry's first 100% solid two-component polyurethane plugging material for remediating wood ties. This non-foam solution is as strong as unspiked hardwood ties and outperforms wood plugs, polymeric foam and epoxy foam in both lateral resistance and pullout resistance.
  • Shoe Adhesive
    • In 1972 Shoe GOO was invented for "tennis toe" (caused by dragging your shoe toe during service). The formula remains the same after all these years... not only do tennis players continue to use Shoe GOO, it has become very popular with skateboarders and anyone not wanting to let go of those special shoes in the closet.

Partnering through service, innovation and integrity.
