“Focus and simplicity have been one of our primary mantras for our company. Simple is much harder than complex. You have to go deep to get your thinking clean to make it simple. But it’s worth it in the end because once you get there, you can move mountains.”
Every idea starts with a problem and ours was simple: high pressure spray foam systems are too expensive and complicated, especially for smaller projects in existing buildings. This idea really hit home as we started Ag-tite (www.Ag-tite.com) back in 2005. Since we were both the contractor and at the same time developing the spray technology to help farmers, we were asked ourselves “Why is this so hard?”.
Part of what made it so hard was the frustration and expense when we were forced to be down for an an entire day because we couldn’t fix the spray gun, or the 55 gallon drums needed to be heated because it was a cold day. Then there were all of the small projects that many of the farmers wanted us to do that were in the $1,000 – $3,000 range, but our only option was to send our Dodge with the 40′ trailer and a crew of guys which was expensive.
It turns out there was a simple explanation. The spray foam insulation industry is dominated by spray equipment and chemicals that are focused primarily on the new residential housing market and the commercial roofing business. There is no real interest in creating small, portable spray systems. The machines in the market today are built using technology that is over 20 years old. Also, the spray equipment and chemicals are not integrated, causing a lot of confusion for anyone using the spray system, especially if it is just a small project.
So we started Sealant Technologies Inc.
in 2010 to create an alternative.
We see Sealant Technologies, Inc as a company that will sweat all of the details so that it’s easy and pleasant for our potential customers to use our spray technology. We are really good at this because we have been through this process many times. That doesn’t mean we don’t listen to customers, but often it’s hard for them to tell us what they want when they’ve never seen anything remotely like what we are creating.
Men sit down and ask “What is it?” The boy will look at it and ask “What can I do with it?”
Most people have no concept of how an automatic transmission works, yet they know how to drive a car. You don’t have to study physics to understand the laws of motion to drive a car. You shouldn’t have to understand all of this spray foam stuff in order to use any of the Sealant Technologies products. This is why we believe that innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower, and at our company we want to lead.
