TechLine Celebrates 40 Years Of Business and Innovation
Spanish Fort, AL: TechLine International, also doing business as TechLine Mfg., is celebrating 40 years of business in 2022. The company was founded in February 1982 as Technical Specialties and has grown in ways not ever imagined in its earliest days. To celebrate the 40-year milestone, the company is planning an employee celebration later in the year, as well as other activities.
TechLine began as a distribution company for process instrumentation products, operating out of Daphne, AL. In the early ‘90s the company began manufacturing instrumentation support products for industry. Products such as tubing supports, clamps, and instrument stands as well as channel tray were manufactured and sold under the TechLine Mfg. brand. As heavy industry instrumentation disciplines moved from pneumatic toward more electrical, customers began looking for supporting ventilated channel trays that were UL classified. As a result, the company worked with industry leaders to develop TechLine Mfg.’s innovative patented Snap Track ventilated channel product line. Introduced to the market in 2009, Snap Track aluminum channel tray has since become a common method for supporting both tubing and cables in many industry sectors, including oil and gas, chemical processing, biofuels, LNG, and even food and beverage.
In 2012, the company sold the Technical Specialties distribution sector and name, leaving the remaining businesses of TechLine International as the parent company, and TechLine Mfg. as the manufacturing entity, both which still exist today.
TechLine International is an importer that works with other companies to develop and source products from outside the U.S. The team works with clients to develop prototypes that are manufactured overseas and shipped to the U.S. Products include forgings, castings, valves, and tubing, all used in industrial facilities. The company maintains inventories of these products for customers and ships them when needed. https://techlineint.com.
