Robert R. Klingel, Sr., C.E.O.

Thanks for visiting our web site. TSE is truly a family company. My parents, Walt and Helen Klingel, started TSE back in 1962. It’s been a labor of love ever since. Now, my three sons are taking the reigns and leading TSE into the future, with (left to right) Rob Jr. as head of our Engineered Polymers Division, Brad our UHMW Sheet Division, TSE-OK, and Rick as President.  

TSE was built on simple values that have stood the test of time. Our guiding principle remains the same: Treat our customers and employees as we want to be treated. These core values have served us well over the last 50 plus years and account for our growth from a small "Mom and Pop Shop" to an industry leader, with over 275 dedicated employees who share our philosophy, making us one of the largest employers in the Tampa Bay Area.

To those of you whom we have the privilege of calling our customers, thank you for putting your faith and trust in us. For those of you considering doing business with TSE, we will do everything possible to earn your trust and exceed your expectations.  Give us a try. You’ll be glad you did.
