TAKTL Expands into a Historic Manufacturing Plant & Announces New R&D Facility in Pittsburgh
Five years ago, we banded together as an interdisciplinary team of business leaders, architects and innovators to launch TAKTL, the United States’ first Ultra High Performance Concrete (UHPC) manufacturing company that specializes in durable, versatile, and visually compelling architectural facade panels and architectural elements.
Today, TAKTL is 120 people and an international leader in the market for UHPC panels, and our products can be seen on high-profile projects all over the Americas: the National Museum of African American History and Culture at the Smithsonian Institution, San Benito County Superior Courthouse in Hollister, CA, University of Alaska Engineering & Industry Building in Anchorage, AK, Washington University Medical Center in St. Louis, MO and numerous museums, universities, hotels and mixed-use buildings.
The enthusiasm and increasing demand for TAKTL from both architects and building owners has driven our need to expand into a 140,000 square-foot factory, and to create a 45,000 square-foot R&D facility. Our state-of-the-art campus, developed in collaboration with the Regional Industrial Development Corporation (RIDC), also includes plans for a new office building in 2016.
