Taconic Celebrates 55th Anniversary

Taconic, Petersburgh, N.Y., is celebrating its 55th anniversary coating fiberglass fabrics with

we at Taconic are proud to continue,” said Andy Russell, owner and CEO.

The company today has manufacturing facilities and sales offices in the Americas, Europe and
Asia. Taconic coats a variety of substrates in PTFE-based materials for the aerospace, automotive,
