HISTORY

Quatro began as a partnership formed in California in May 1997 for the purpose of researching, designing, developing and manufacturing performance-inspired composite products. The original founders set out to develop unique process technologies to produce high quality parts at a reduced cost.

Initially Quatro primarily served the sporting goods and consumer product markets. Over time, Quatro found that its processes were capable of producing parts that would meet the demanding specifications of the aerospace and medical markets. At its core were passion and expertise for product design and process innovation.

 
 
 

TEC INDUSTRIES

In June 2004, a small, greenfield upstart named Tec Industries L.L.C. was formed. At its inception, the firm’s dream was to provide responsiveness, product quality and timely deliveries to the advanced composites industry. Tec’s initial order was to replace three underperforming suppliers and become the key supplier partner to a major medical parts manufacturer in the Midwest.

Manufacturing in Orange City, Iowa, began in December 2004. In less than one year, the company grew to over 20 employees producing medical quality autoclaved carbon composite products.

COMBINING FORCES

Manufacturing expertise emerged quickly for Tec Industries. On the West Coast, advanced and innovative engineering solutions were propelling Quatro Composites forward. But Tec Industries needed industry-leading engineering and product development expertise and Quatro Composites needed business, manufacturing and financial expertise. Through a chance meeting at an industry trade show the two companies met and determined combining forces could propel both organizations forward. In August of 2005, Tec Industries acquired California-based Quatro Composites.
