Company History

  Tapes Plus was established as a full line industrial distributor in the state of California in 1982. The company's early development centered around aerospace original equipment manufacturer (OEM) and commercial airline accounts. The success of this business also created a need for larger accomodations, and Tapes Plus has relocated to expand facilities several times during its history. Yet the company has always remained in the southwest Los Angeles area where its proximity to Los Angeles International Airport enables employees to quickly service airlines on weekends, as well as through-out the week.

   Recent computerization allows Tapes Plus to maintain better inventory control, forecast needed items, and offer split package (case) quantities, which enables end users to reduce their inventory by being able to order exactly what they need to do the job. Better inventory control helps Tapes Plus hold the line on end user prices, in spite of cost increases from the manufacturers, and improves AOG service, since needed items typically are in stock in the Tapes Plus warehouse.


   Tapes Plus also installed shipping software to speed order entry and process FAA/Manufacturer certification paperwork. Tapes Plus ships nearly all stock items the same day the order is placed.

   In 1989 Tapes Plus opened a branch in Athens, Georgia, and the following year added a branch in Jacksonville, Florida. The corporate office then developed a converting division to better service all industries served, and the aerospace accounts in particular.

   Tapes Plus can provide what you need, when and where you need it.

Corporate headquarters of Tapes Plus is located at 22848 Lockness Avenue in Torrance, California.
