In 1961, Lester T. Russell, the acknowledged inventor of the process for applying PTFE to fiberglass fabric, founded Taconic in Petersburgh, NY. The goal for the company? Develop a line of advanced engineered composite materials for use in diverse markets.
Today, we are proud to be celebrating our 60th anniversary in business!
Over the past 60 years, Taconic, still a family-owned business, has grown to include additional manufacturing facilities in California (USA), Ireland, Poland, and Brazil. Strategic fabrication departments have been added in the UK, France, and Germany to better serve those markets. And, to further our customer service and support outlets, Taconic satellite offices have popped up around the world.
By pioneering, and further innovating, the manufacture of PTFE coated fabrics and other high temperature/nonstick materials, Taconic has become a leading global supplier to
businesses of all sizes in food processing, aerospace, automotive, composites, packaging, textiles, carpet/flooring, PVC welding, and many more.
Thank you to all who have helped us become the company we are today.
Taconic – Finding a better way… for over 60 years!
