News-Antique.com - Feb 14,2009 - SANTA ANA, Calif., June 30, 2008 – LINE-X® Franchise Development Corporation (LINE-X), widely-known for being the industry leader in truck bed protection, is proud to announce its fifteen year anniversary.
“LINE-X’s success in the last fifteen years has been three-fold,” said LINE-X CEO John Q. Wesley II. “First we have unbelievable franchisees that really believe in the product and apply our coatings with great skill. Because of their great work, our customer base continues to grow and we have a LINE-X fan base that does not waver. Finally, our products withstand the test of time due to our diligent corporate team. Their commitment to our brand can be seen across the board and it makes me very proud to be a part of the LINE-X family.”
LINE-X specializes in spray elastomers, polyurethanes and polyureas that are a fast cure, multipurpose, series of coatings designed for a wide range of retail, commercial and industrial uses. They exhibit excellent adhesion to most properly prepared surfaces and with its fast cure time, LINE-X can be sprayed vertically and even overhead without running or dripping. Available in every color imaginable, LINE-X contains no solvents, which means there are no air pollutants or harmful environmental contaminates.
Since its inception, LINE-X has been applied to over 2.5 million trucks and the company continues to strives to develop first-class products designed to support the existing LINE-X spray-on bedliners, but also give their over 500 global franchisees an advantage over the competition. Such products include LINE-X ReNew™, the first and only product in the industry to completely resurface an entire bedliner repairing and restoring the bedliner to its original condition; LINE-X XTRA®, the only color composite coating fortified with DuPont™ Kevlar®; as well as superior equipment to make application time easier, quicker and most importantly, aesthetically sound.
EXPANDING INTO NEW MARKETS
LINE-X launched its LINE-X® Industrial Coatings Division (LICD) in 1999 and has developed a full range of polyurea and polyurethane coatings that have been extensively engineered and independently tested to ensure they provide superior protection for virtually any properly prepared surface, including metal, concrete, fiberglass and wood. LINE-X industrial coatings are perfect for companies who are serious about protecting and prolonging the life of their assets or seek long-term, often permanent solutions against abrasion, bomb blast, chemical spillage, corrosion, environmental elements, impact and workplace slippage. Due to their exceptional durability and quick application turnaround time, LINE-X industrial coatings are becoming increasingly popular throughout a wide range of commercial and industrial industries, including construction, manufacturing, mining, material handling, marine, municipal/outdoor facilities, petrochemical, plating, primary/secondary containment, transportation and more.
In 2000, LINE-X was first to develop and launch a bomb blast coating, PAXCON PX-2350, which has been recognized by the U.S. military and the defense industry for its high levels of protection, and has been approved for protection of the U.S. Pentagon, as well as other government, military and private buildings around the globe.
