Time Line

Tayco was founded in 1971 by Charles Taylor, now under the direction of Dr. Jay Chung, PhD., President & CEO. Tayco is a manufacturer of electrical heaters and temperature sensors for aerospace applications.  Over the past forty years, we have acquired a diverse range of capabilities in research, development, and manufacturing. We have greatly expanded our line of products and now service the medical, defense, nuclear, semi-conductor and aerospace industries.

A philosophy of providing the highest level of engineering expertise, quality, and customer support has proven to be a valuable formula over the years. Our customer base has steadily grown to over 700 globally and we have produced over 17,500 flight proven designs. Tayco has participated in most of the major space programs, every single manned spacecraft and deep space probe, space shuttles, Space Station Freedom, and the majority of orbiting satellites (commercial and defense applications). Tayco, a NASA Certified Supplier, has established itself as a preferred or mandatory source for numerous critical applications

Company Profile

Tayco Engineering, Inc. has five major product groups: flexible polyimide & silicone heaters, flexible cable, temperature sensors, high temperature metallic heaters, and specialty products.

Employment at Tayco

 

Quality Assurance

At Tayco Engineering, quality is every employee's responsibility. Considering the many critical systems that rely on our parts to perform without failure, quality assurance is never compromised.

Our Quality Department is staffed and equipped to perform a variety of test functions on site: electrical testing thermal cycling, thermal vacuum, leak detection, and tight tolerance calibration. Tayco's Quality Assurance Personnel monitor the entire manufacturing cycle by performing in-process inspections and material audits regularly. Detailed records of all processes from start to finish are recorded and maintained on file.

Tayco is certified to ISO-9001, ANSIASQC Q9001, MIL-Q-9858, MIL-I-45208, NHB-5300-4 (1C), and ANSI-NCSL-Z540-1. All equipment is maintained to NIST Standards and all documentation is retained on file permanently.
