Get to Know Our Facilities
TactoTek engineering team adapts customer designs into Injection Molded Structural Electronics solutions, and the vertically integrated production line optimizes them for mass production.
Include new functions, create innovative shapes and add electronic functionality in new locations when traditional design constraints are eliminated.
Our in-mold electronics have a typical wall thickness of 2-4mm, and do not require the depth of light pipes and full width PCBs.
TactoTek structures are molded using standard plastics and eliminate multiple structural elements found in typical electronics designs.

“To achieve excellence in technology innovation is never an easy task, and is made even more difficult considering today’s competitive intensity. We identify companies, such as TactoTek, that excel in innovation, enabling them to serve their customers more effectively and grow faster than the industry average.”
David Frigstad, Chairman
Frost & Sullivan
“Wearable Technology, the Internet of Things and other new applications of electronics cannot be adequately served by the 100 year old components-in-a-box approach.
Lightweight, shaped, rugged, structural construction, where TactoTek excels, is essential. It will be invaluable in electric vehicles for example.”
