Clean Seal celebrated its 30th year October 1, 2008. Started in 1978 by Juanita Moore, the company has seen continuous growth in marketing extruded rubber sealant products.
“The growth has required us to move into larger facilities three times since 1978, according to Bill Dawson, vice president and general manager. “We've added warehouse and office space at each of the locations until we ran out of space.” Dawson has been with the company since its organization. Clean Seal received the ISO9000:2001 in early 2002.
In autumn 2000, the family-owned business moved into a 72,000-square-foot facility at 20900 West Ireland Road in South Bend. The Moore family continues to operate the business.
