About Us

In December 1999, Pioneer® Balloon Company acquired the assets of the National Latex Products Company in Ashland, Ohio and changed the name to Pioneer National Latex. National Latex was founded in 1939 and was lead throughout its history by the Gill family. As a balloon manufacturer, National Latex, excelled in consumer packaged products and developed innovative merchandising solutions that addressed the needs of the retail market. Its balloons and punch balls could be purchased in most of the major mass market chains.

Today, Pioneer National Latex continues this tradition and has expanded its line of products offered to consumers. From water balloon grenades to a series of balloons, National Latex offers a wide range of products that appeal to children and adults alike; including the most popular licensed characters printed on a latex balloon and punch ball in attractive consumer friendly packages. In addition, Pioneer National manufacturers a complete line of competitively priced helium quality balloons in a variety of sizes and colors.
