Quality, people, products and service; words that sum up what TCI is all about. Our commitment to these words and the effort required to stand behind them has helped us to become an industry leader in the manufacturing of electrostatic powder coatings. Our guiding philosophy continues to be one of producing great coatings and delivering the highest level of service in the industry to our customers. Our ISO 9001 certification recognizes our effort To Be An Excellent Supplier. Quality is a philosophy all of us at TCI are proud of.
TCI started in 1987 in Ellaville, GA. with not much more than a small plant and a portable building for the offices and a lab. Since then we have grown to more than 130 employees. Our administration offices and laboratory are still in Ellaville. Today we have both a large batch facility as well as a small batch plant that can turn around small orders in as little as a week. We also bond all of our own product in our own facility located in Ellaville. In addition to our operation in Georgia, our Technology Center is located in Jacksonville, FL. This facility keeps TCI in the forefront of powder development and has our own weathering test facility.
Our top sales force reaches across North America and is supported by a highly trained technical service team providing service to large
multinational corporations as well as custom coaters. A network of 15 product warehouses in the United States, Canada, and Mexico ensure that we have stock products readily available when you need them.
TCI became a proud part of RPM, Inc. in 1996. RPM has a diverse portfolio of more than 800 distinct name brand products that sell to a wide variety of end-use markets. As a part of RPM, TCI benefits from this marketing diversity to help smooth the ebbs and flows of economic cycles and provide TCI increased financial stability for the long term.While our efforts have helped us grow and develop strong ties with larger and internationally recognized companies, we still take pride in our being able to supply smaller coatings users with quality products.
