        ray sexton

        Mesa Industries is a family company. Ray Sexton formed the company in 1967 in California by partnering his products for the oil and gas industry with an existing supplier to the gunite construction industry. This focus on varying industries and markets established the diversification that has become the benchmark of the company’s success today. Mesa was incorporated in 1968 comprised of two sales divisions: Mesa Rubber Company and the Gunite Contractors Supplies & Equipment Co.

        In 1974, the company opened its first branch in Houston, Texas to serve the needs of the thriving oil & gas industry in the Gulf of Mexico and the gunite pool builders throughout the southeast US. In 1978, Mesa acquired Airplaco Equipment Company, creating a third division of the company, and opened a location in Cincinnati, Ohio. Throughout the 80’s and 90’s Mesa continued to expand its product line to meet the needs of varying industries, including oil & gas, mining, and concrete construction. With the addition of a new fabrics division in 1998, Mesa further diversified its business into the technical textiles market.

         

        Terry Segerberg

         In 2001, Terry Segerberg became the CEO of Mesa Industries, transitioning company leadership to the 2nd generation. Upon assuming the role of CEO Terry oversaw the development of one of Mesa’s most successful products, Vapor Guard®. This product is designed to inhibit emissions from oil & gas storage tanks, reducing pollution into the environment and product loss for customers. Vapor Guard® is used by companies such as ConocoPhillips, BP, Chevron, Exxon, Marathon, Valero and CTS Netherlands to control emissions at gasoline storage terminals throughout the world. The design of Vapor Guard® has recently been updated in 2012 to include new technologies for emission reduction.

         

        Under Terry’s leadership Mesa has seen record growth and profits. Sales revenue more than doubled from 2002 to 2007. When the economy declined in 2008, many of the industries that Mesa serves went into decline. However, the company’s diversification and partnerships with international distributors allowed Mesa to maintain a successful business. By negotiating and strategic partnerships, Terry and her management team have established dedicated representation for Mesa products in India and China leading to export levels far exceeding those of the past. In 2011, exports represented over half of sales revenue. Improvements have been made internally within the company to further influence Mesa’s bottom line. Terry led the transition of the company’s operations from generalists to specialists, a move that brought more experience and expertise to departments, such as accounting, human resources, inventory, engineering and marketing. These changes have led to company success, such as timely and detailed transaction data, negotiated rates with vendors, recruitment of high performing sales and production staff, inventory reduction, development of new product designs and high levels of new customer acquisitions.

         

        Terry has also established strategic planning as a key driver of the company’s annual business plan leading to a more focused team. Community involvement is on the rise under Terry’s leadership as it has become a more prevalent topic throughout company departments, promoted on company communications such as the employee newsletter and even incentivized through employee rewards programs. In the near future Mesa will be expanding its product line to the petroleum and masonry industries based on customer feedback, establish a Family Council and expanding its Board of Directors to better serve the evolving markets that Mesa serves.
