Fenix brands have been industry leaders for over 60 years in specialty high-performance coatings and concrete and decorative solutions for real-world challenges and has been focused on strategically acquiring premier brands to expand its manufacturing, sales, and distribution footprint.  CEO, Ray Torres, stated “TCI fits our strategic objective of acquiring strong brands, offering premium quality products, in areas where we are either not currently represented or are under-represented.  TCI allows us to expand our manufacturing and warehousing footprint in a region we consider very attractive and augments our already strong product portfolio for the Industrial market and OEMs.  We are extremely excited about TCI joining the Fenix family of brands.”

TCI Coatings (tci-coatings.com) was founded by Charles Horton in 1959 and is headquartered in Lubbock, TX.  TCI has historically supported its customer partners through unapparelled quality, service, and innovation.  Kathleen Tims, President of TCI said, “We have been in discussions with Fenix for some time now and believe we found the right partner for TCI.
