Tapco Expands Facility

July 23, 2008
Tapco Inc., an industry-leading manufacturer of elevator buckets and bolts, recently expanded its headquarters in St. Louis, Missouri.

The new expansion increases total office and warehouse space to 92,000 sq ft. This addition has allowed Tapco to increase its inventory of elevator bolts to over 12 million and add 33 new sizes of #1 Norway and Fanged metric bolts in 6, 8, and 10 mm diameters and lengths up to 50 mm.

Tapco has been in its own facility for more than 25 years. The additional space compliments Tapco’s in-house production of injection-molded elevator buckets. Tapco recently added a 9th injection-molding machine. They range from a 150- to 1000-tn press, allowing Tapco to make its line of buckets in the most expedient manner and with the greatest quality control.

“Elevator bolts are one of our specialties,” said Ted Beaty, executive vice president of Tapco Inc. “We have the largest inventory in the Northern Hemisphere. We offer top-notch quality bolts to accompany our buckets, as well as other accessories to help our customers improve productivity, no matter what material they handle.”

Tapco has 900,000 buckets, in 60 sizes, stocked in the U.S. and throughout the world.
