Tekkote was founded in 1988, in Moonachie, New Jersey. It currently operates two facilities: One in Leonia, NJ and the other Ridgefield, NJ. Corporate headquarters along with finishing and distribution operations are located in Leonia. The Ridgefield facility serves as our coating, quality and product development operation. Tekkote was established around a business strategy to manufacture specialty silicone coated release liners through the use of technical and manufacturing expertise that would ensure high quality standards and excellent service of customers needs. From its inception, Tekkote has built a reputation for developing solutions for customers that meet needs not previously satisfied by other suppliers. As a result, Tekkote has expanded its market share within the specific industries served. In 1999 Tekkote was acquired by Jen-Coat, Inc, Westfield, MA. Jen-Coat is an industry leader in the manufacture of specialty extrusion coated products. In 2009 Tekkote successfully completed a management buy-out, once again becoming an independent company. Today Tekkote continues the strategy it started back in 1988, bringing leading edge technical solutions, unparalleled service, and a low cost business model to the market place. 2
