About TSE Industries

TSE is a third generation, family-owned company founded in 1962 by Walt and Helen Klingel.  Their son, Robert R. Klingel, Sr., serves as TSE's C.E.O. Rob's three sons run the day-to-day operations of TSE: Richard "Rick" Klingel is TSE's President, Robert R. Klingel, Jr. runs TSE's Engineered Polymers Division, while Louis "Brad" Klingel runs TSE's UHMW Sheet Division, TSE-OK.  

TSE's Management Team and employees take pride in 50 years of quality work. TSE is a business partner you can count on and trust with your most critical products and parts. We are ISO 9001 2008 Certified. TSE is based in Clearwater, Florida, USA, and is the 8th largest employer in the Tampa Bay Area, with over 250 dedicated employees occupying 230,000 square feet of facilities. TSE is a great place to work, offering competitive salaries, a full range of benefits, 401(k) and supplemental insurance.

The Klingel Family has always believed in and supported the Tampa Bay Community.  In 2002, the Klingel Family Foundation was established to increase this effort by facilitating charitable giving to a wide range of outstanding organizations. Since its inception, the Foundation has given over $1,200,000 to various charities, including Hospice, The Ronald McDonald House, All Children’s Hospital, Moffitt Cancer Center, the SPCA, and many others.  The Foundation supports the Ronald McDonald House, Hospice and All Children's Ball.  TSE works with St. Petersburg College, WorkNet Pinellas, and Pinellas Technical Education Center, enhancing educational experience in the machining trades and providing job opportunities for graduates.  Likewise, TSE reaches out to hire those with special challenges, choosing to concentrate on their abilities rather than perceived disabilities. Supporting the local community is a passion of the Klingel family.
