John Latta Associates, Inc. (JLAI) incorporated in 1974 with headquarters in Portland, Oregon. JLAI currently does business under two DBAs: Sealant Specialists (SS) and Seco Construction Supply (SCS). JLAI presently operates out of 6 locations: Portland OR, Seattle WA, Yakima WA, Kennewick WA, Spokane WA, and Boise ID.
In 1974, John Latta started distributing foam tape and insulating glass products to the window manufacturing and glazing industry. As demand increased, an office was opened in Seattle in 1978. The early 1980’s saw the start of the foam tape conversion process along with continued distribution. JLAI is now the largest converter of foam tape on the west coast.
Expansion into the sealant and waterproofing markets came in the mid 1980’s. The Boise office was added in the 1990’s along with additional products from national manufacturers of water repellents, fire stopping and deck coatings.
In 2004 Seco Construction Supply was purchased with locations in Yakima WA and Spokane WA. SCS had a strong penetration into the concrete accessories market and brought with it a rental business supporting the concrete forming and tilt up industries. The Kennewick office was open in 2006 in order to offer better service to the Tri Cities area.
John Latta Associates, Inc. under its two DBAs continues to serve the northwest construction market furnishing nationally known products with primary emphasis on CSI Divisions 3, 7, 9.
