Tyler Pipe was named after our home base in Tyler, Texas. From our inception in the mid-1930s as the country was coming out of the Great Depression and experiencing economic recovery, Tyler was able to adapt to industry change. This resilience is the driving force behind the Tyler of today.
Tyler continued to pioneer new technologies and was the first company to migrate from manual to mechanized production. The first mechanized pipe machine, that duplicated manual production sequences, produced enough five-foot pipe to span the earth four times over. Tyler continued to design and develop machines and products to meet the ever changing needs of the customer. In 1959, Tyler introduced the first 10-foot length of cast iron soil pipe. In 1964, Tyler Pipe started manufacturing cast iron no hub pipe and fittings. In 1979, Tyler sold their 100-millionth Tyler Ty-Seal compression gasket. In 1986, Tyler Pipe began production of its own no hub couplings and gaskets.
Solving problems creatively has been the Tyler way since its inception. The company has been a growth operation and attributes this to development factors and management’s alertness to the needs of the buyers and users. From the start, the Company positioned itself to serve the plumber through conventional distribution channels.
