The scope of Teknor Apex products encompasses a universe. People around the world encounter Teknor Apex products in a myriad of forms every day. As a premier compound solutions provider, Teknor Apex is one of the most ethical, customer-connected companies in the industry. A vast range of polymer solutions means each customer receives the best fit for their needs. For nearly a century, Teknor Apex has compounded creativity with technology with each customer, each product, and every single solution.
When Alfred Fain founded a small Rhode Island tire store in 1924, at the time no one could have predicted how Teknor Apex would become an international custom compounder sought out by companies around the world. After a nearly hundred-year journey that’s carried us through acquisitions and expansion, we now have nine U.S. locations, as well as operations in Belgium, Singapore, Germany, and China.
From bottles to boots to junction boxes, dashboards to ear buds to garden hoses, kayaks to toys to decks, specifiers and processors of products call on Teknor to be their trusted polymer partner. That trust is something we’ve earned by continually delivering custom solutions that meet or exceed our customers’ requirements—and expectations.
Our status as the most dependable material science company in the industry is due to our talented Teknor teammates, as well as our unique infrastructure that offers unrivaled material testing and quality control. With six specialty divisions and almost a century of expertise, we have the capability to deliver highly tailored solutions, no matter the customer, supplier, or product.
Our application development engineers and sophisticated analytical and technical labs enable us to continue to develop new products to the solve your hardest problems.
Throughout this global expansion Teknor has remained a privately held company, and today Fain’s grandson sits at the helm, maintaining the family’s tradition of fostering deep customer relationships. These relationships are what allow us—together—to deliver customized compound solutions and help you create better products.
