Company History


Founded in 1981 as Trelltex Inc., Texcel found a niche in the industry as the “emergency response” hose and rubber supplier. Our customers learned to depend on us for quick shipments and a reliable, large inventory. In 1986, Texcel hit a milestone in recognition by being ranked #102 on the Inc. 500 Fastest Growing Small Businesses List.

Since then, Texcel has become a leader in the industry with a broad international client base. Our product line has expanded to include unrivaled high-quality industrial rubber and plastic products, based on heavy research and development to meet growing industry needs. Texcel has only continued to grow, adding services such as immediate order confirmations, same-day invoicing, hose fabrication and confidential blind-drop shipments.

The company changed its name from Trelltex to Texcel. The name acknowledges Texcel’s dedication to superior products.

Committed to our philosophy of taking care of our distributors, Texcel has continued to add distribution centers around the country to better serve our customers’ needs by getting them the products they need faster than ever before.
