ABOUT

TSI was founded in 1992 by Benny Teal. Benny remains the company’s President and sole owner. The main office is in Lynnwood, Washington about sixteen miles north of Seattle on the Northwest coast of the United States. The area is a center of industry and commerce with deep connections to timber, aerospace, software and ecommerce. It’s also an area of outstanding natural beauty with snow capped mountains, lush forests and a wild Pacific coastline that extends inland, via Puget Sound, right up to the deep port and waterfront of Seattle. The local economy is particularly strong on engineering and well connected to both Asia and Europe making it an ideal base for TSI.
Our company's approach to business is based on the technology first and is coupled with a strong emphasis on customer satisfaction. We see the value of our organization being in the development of advanced solutions that offer increased efficiency of production and quality of product. Manufacturing of the machinery is subcontracted to a slate of qualified fabricators spread across North America and increasingly in overseas locations.This allows us to design machines to suit the task at hand first, not what might suit a particular shop’s capabilities. The result is a “no-compromise”solution leading to the best production facility for our clients.
