Tipco Technologies Celebrates 130 Years of Distribution Excellence

OWINGS MILLS, MD – February 7, 2018 – Tipco Technologies is celebrating its 130th successful year in the hose solutions distribution and fabrication industry. What began as a single-location, single-service business has grown into a regional leader, offering numerous products and services in 12 locations throughout the Mid-Atlantic region.

The legacy began in 1888, when George P. Thomas founded a Goodyear Rubber in Baltimore, MD. The company changed hands, names and locations throughout the next century, eventually relocating to Owings Mills, MD, with additional branches in Frederick, MD and Chantilly, VA. By 2001, Thomas Industrial Products had evolved into Tipco Technologies, Inc.

Tipco has since opened multiple Express Hose Centers across Maryland, Delaware and Virginia. The expansive OEM facility in Glen Burnie recently doubled in square footage to accommodate an increase in demand and staff.

“We have grown every year since I started here,” said Steve McCready, a Tipco sales representative since 1974. “It’s a tribute to our entire company.”

Tipco’s longevity and success can be attributed to a customer-centric business approach: the company exceeds expectations by providing intuitive solutions beyond its product inventory. Strong relationships with clients and suppliers are also a top priority.

“Rob (Rob Lyons, Tipco President) has helped many of his customers grow their businesses,” said Jeff Johnson, Area Sales Manager at Eaton Hydraulics. Johnson’s relationship with Tipco began in 1987 when he was Sales Manager at Boston Hose. “I think these shared successes are something to be proud of.”

“Tipco will continue to find new ways to provide solutions and add value to the products they sell. Whether it’s ease of order, customization of product, or delivery of integrated solutions to the assembly line, Tipco will be there,” stated Johnson.

This confidence from team members and suppliers alike is sure to shape the next century of Customer-First service from Tipco Technologies, Inc.
