Taconic is a privately owned American company with its European headquarters in Mullingar, Ireland. For over thirty years we have built our client base by focusing on commitment to quality, service, product innovation and, most importantly, customer satisfaction.
What we do
Taconic has been a world leader in the PTFE coated glass industry since 1961. Founded by Lester T. Russell, the acknowledged inventor of PTFE to glass fabric, over the last four decades, the company has expanded on this core capability by serving numerous markets. Facilities in Europe, the Americas, and Asia serve customers with high-quality fabricated materials and multilingual local sales support.
Our Industrial Products Division produces a wide range of coated materials, including PTFE coated glass fabrics, self adhesive Tac-Tapes, engineered conveyor belts, and silicone coated glass fabrics. The lightweight, durable, non-stick, dielectric and thermal characteristics of these chemically-resistant coated materials makes them well-suited for applications in the food, plastic packaging, textile manufacturing, chemical, screen printing, oil, aerospace and distribution industries.
The Taconic team consists of talented individuals who are skilled at responding quickly to rapidly changing markets. Under the leadership of CEO Andy Russell grandson of the company's founder, the Taconic team continues to demonstrate the ability to convert knowledge into innovation-resulting in Taconic maintaining its position as a leading supplier of advanced engineered composite materials.
