- Tangent Technologies, LLC., is a privately held company located in the Chicago metro area. Tangent was founded in 2003 by a team of plastics industry veterans who saw an opportunity for improving on resin-based lumber materials with new manufacturing technologies and materials. Founders Andrew Stephens, Guy DeFeo and Francisco Morales helped develop the plastic recycling and lumber materials industry in the 1980’s with Eaglebrook Plastics and Eaglebrook Products.
The industry reputation of this team, the outstanding product quality, innovation and customer service have made Tangent the fastest growing company in the industry. Working out of a new 130,000 square foot facility, Tangent utilizes the latest extrusion technology and computer-assisted design and process capabilities to match produced materials with the unique needs of each of its customers.
High-technology resin blending and extrusion processes are used to produce PolyTuf™, PolyForce™, TanDeck™ and other tough, long-lasting materials that are designed to look new for years in all kinds of weather and usage. Shapes, colors and materials characteristics can all be custom-specified for any application. We pride ourselves in helping our environment by recycling over 115 million pounds of post-consumer plastic waste each year into useful, long-lasting products. Tangent stands behind its products with an industry-leading 50 year limited warranty.
