Clean Seal Celebrates 25 Years
Clean Seal recently celebrated its 25th year. Started in 1978 by Juanita Moore, the company has seen continuous growth in the marketing of extruded rubber sealant products. Although Mrs.
Moore passed away in 1997, the company has continued to grow.
"The growth has required us to move into larger facilities three times since 1978, according to Vice President, General Manager Bill Dawson. "And we've added warehouse and office space at each of the locations until we ran out of space." Dawson continued. Dawson has been with the company since its organization. In the Fall of 2000, the family owned business moved into a large 72,000 sq. ft. facility located at 20900 West Ireland Road in South Bend. The Moore family continues to operate the business.
