Esco Plastics was founded in 1968 by LSU graduate chemist, Doug Marchand, who was one of the pioneers in the newly forming cast urethane industry. In 1990 Mr. Marchand sold the company to 2 of his employees, Kurt Owens and Jeff Anderson.
Kurt and Jeff started in a 6400sf building in north Houston and further developed the company on the pillars of High Quality and Exceptional Service with a focus on the oil and gas industry.
Grant Owens joined the company shortly thereafter as the company expanded into 13,000sf and later into 25,000sf in 2005. The company grew its manufacturing capabilities during this period and streamlined its production processes to provide consistent, repeatable quality to its customers.
Eventually, the company out grew its original location, and in 2008, Esco was moved to a new 33,000sf plant on 9.9 acres in Magnolia, TX. This plant was designed and constructed from the ground up to be the most efficient, leanest operation to date. This plant was expanded once again in 2011 to 44,000sf.
Looking forward, we work to continuously improve our operation and services further to enhance our ability to fill the growing needs of our customers.
