In 1980, Dirk Desanzo had a dream to start a company in the converting industry that provided unique products and excellent customer service; that dream was realized when Technicote was incorporated.
Since the company’s beginning, Technicote has expanded throughout North America with four manufacturing locations across the United States, specializing in pressure-sensitive materials and release liners. Most recently, Technicote invested in a coating line at the Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio plant. The focus of the new coater is pressure sensitive specialty films and liners as well as custom patterned products, including zone and dry edge coatings.
Today, Technicote continues Desanzo’s goal. According to Technicote, ‘Achieving these goals is a collected effort of our employees and measured not only by sales but the satisfaction and pride in accomplishing difficult tasks for our customers.’
Frank Gavrilos, president of Technicote, said: ‘We have accomplished a lot during our first 40 years, outlasting more than 96 percent of companies in the United States. That achievement is a product of the incredible talent and drive of the people within our company as well as the trust and support of our great customers. Thank you for making Technicote what it is today and paving the way for decades of success to come.’
