Amelia & James - Distant Thunder

Every legacy has a beginning – a single seed planted that takes deep root in history and allows us to trace our heritage. Looking back on my family’s long legacy of hard work and craftsmanship in everything they did, I strive to do the same in our Shannon Legacy Series.

As a young boy, I remember frequenting our family’s sawmills with an excitement and enthusiasm I still carry with me to this day. The music of the steam engines that would run the mill created the underlying rhythm that was the soundtrack of my youth. I fondly think of all the times I rode on the carriages that held the freshly harvested logs from the forest. Every log was a new story – each ring, layer, knot and variation of shading told a distinct history – a history I am proud to be a part of.

Like each log that came into the sawmill, each of us has a story – a unique history. I want to share that history that infuses our Shannon Legacy Series. Our two lines are derived from my early family members and their stories embody everything our wood flooring is about.

Brands We Proudly Offer

PoloPlaz began in the early 1960s as National Coatings Co. The founder of the company had been employed during the 1950s in research and development at Union Carbide. During this period, Union Carbide spent considerable resources developing the polyurethane technology that had emerged during World War II.

The company prospered as a small business until the founder became ill and could no longer manage it. Mac Hogan took the reins in 1988, building the company into a leader in hardwood floor finishing in North America. Since then, millions of dollars have been invested into new products, facilities and equipment to keep National Coatings on the cutting edge of finish technology.

In 2002, Chad Baker came on board as the new president of National Coatings, working alongside Mac to continue advancing and expanding products, techniques and technology. He plays an integral role in the day-to-day operations, as well as in guiding PoloPlaz’s future.

PoloPlaz was the trade name of the National Coatings products. Over the years, more and more customers began referring to the company by the brand name, so, in 2006, National Coatings officially became known as PoloPlaz.

Unlike nearly all other finish companies – which purchase all or some of their products from contract or toll manufacturers – PoloPlaz products are all made in-house from proprietary formulations. This approach ensures that PoloPlaz products are designed specifically for the intended application, and that quality can be maintained to higher standards.

Our Mission

Springcreek Flooring


Hugh’s first love is his grandsons, shown with him here in a recent photo. One of our team members suggested that an appropriate caption for this picture might be “the owners and their granddad”.

After serving six years in the U.S. Army as a paratrooper, Hugh McClain spent the first 10 years of his business career in the poultry industry as a sales manager for a national feed company in Iowa and Missouri. 

Hugh returned to Arkansas and began producing turkeys in 1970. This was the beginning of McClain Farms. In 1973, he acquired a feed mill and began expanding the operation. At its height, McClain Farms had 42 contract turkey producers in north central Arkansas and was operating a fleet of trucks to support the various facets of the business. McClain Farms purchased wood shavings for poultry bedding from a company in Alton, Missouri. McClain purchased the company in 1996. McClain built a new receiving, drying and processing yard in Alton, then in 2005 purchased a flooring manufacturing plant in Koshkonong, Missouri. In May of 2010, McClain acquired the hardwood lumber operations of the North Pacific Group. After merging the two operations, the company changed its name to McClain Forest Products, LLC.

Hugh has diversified his business interests by expanding into multi-family housing, cattle, and the banking business. During his career, Hugh has been president of the National Turkey Federation and Arkansas Poultry Federation and served on the Arkansas Poultry and Livestock Commission. He was recently inducted into the Arkansas Agriculture Hall of Fame.
