Our Story


TBSI Provides Solutions for Buyers and Engineers Who are Facing Production Constraints

Successful projects take hard work, organization, and good partners.

TBSI is a strategic sourcing company that is focused on agile project management - this means no corporate red tape and siloed departments.

Our compact team operates as an extension of OEM buying groups that have limited capabilities or capacity constraints.

Working with our extensive network of suppliers and leveraging volume pricing on raw material, TBSI provides our customers with competitive pricing and quick lead times.

Off Road Equipment Manufacturer

The team at TBSI has the skills and network to deliver when it really counts. We’ve turned to them multiple times over the years in emergency situations because we know they understand our needs and will do whatever it takes to make it happen. They excel at production demand as well and will always work to achieve a total cost that is equitable for all. I highly recommend TBSI for any metal fabrication needs.


Our Story

In 1998, Mark Taylor noticed the potential of underutilized assets in hometown machine shops and realized there were vast amounts of high tech, high production manufacturing equipment sitting idle.  The idea to seek out and unify this equipment under one firm was born.
