Company History

Taylor Spring was founded in 1949. Focusing on Air-wound inductor coils, Taylor Spring was a major supplier to the television set industry. Early Television tuners required a large number of inductor coils. Taylor Spring developed and patented a technique for stripping insulation off of the copper wire in-line during the production process allowing these parts to be mass-produced cheaply in large quantities.

In 1967 the original founders retired and the company was continued by its new owners Henry Tyrakowski (brother of one of the founders), Alex Tiffy and William Manderfeld. Taylor Spirng continued its tradition of excellence and supplied inductor coils to the television tuner market as well as the emerging cable television industry as these inductors would be used as filters and traps that allowed the cable companies to selectively allow only the stations that the customer paid for to be delivered to their home.

In 1988, Henry's partners retired and he became the sole shareholder and over the next decade the next generation started becoming part of the business with John Tyrakowski becoming President and Steve Tyrakowski handling the administration and financial side of the business.

In mid-2000, with signs that the copper coil business would be shrinking with the changes from Analog to digital in the cable and television industries, Taylor Spring acquired J&J Spring from its retiring owner. This small step started a new direction to begin diversification into the steel spring industry.

In 2002, Taylor Spring explored further diversification by merging with its primary wire supplier, Fay Electric Wire. After several years as a combined entity, in November 2007, the principals from the Fay Electric Wire business spun off the wire business as a seperate company again. Both companies emerged stronger than when they merged in 2002.

During the time since the J&J Spring acquisition, Taylor Spring has been steadily investing in new spring manufacturing equipment with the intention of becoming a state of the art manufacturer. At the end of 2012, Taylor Spring stands ready with new capacity and several state of the art machines ready to fill your spring and wire forming needs.
