Company History

James L. Taylor established the James L. 浩博体育app制造公司于1911年生产他的专利快速调整,自锁杆夹. This patented clamp was a significant step forward in the edge gluing of lumber. In the 1920’s, the Taylor revolving Clamp Carrier was developed and patented. It was a major first step toward mass production. In 1940 Taylor engineers developed the Panel Flo, a continuous feed edge gluing machine. 从一开始,Panel Flo就被誉为大规模生产粘合的答案. In 1950 Taylor introduced the Panel Mint, 一种间歇式半自动封边机,填补了夹紧机和全自动封边机之间的空白. During the 1950’s and 1960’s, Taylor designed new cost cutting accessories to compliment the Panel Flo and Panel Mint. These included the Conveyorized Glue Applicator, Mix-Mizer and Automatic Cut Off Saw. Also in the 1960’s, Taylor通过引入气动夹紧器和面板压扁器,重新设计了夹紧器设计. During the 1970’s, the Taylor Panel-Mint was the machine of choice. 这种设计精良的蒸汽加热间歇式压力机与低成本的尿素树脂胶相匹配,被许多家具制造商用于生产硬木和软木板. Midway through the 1980’s, Taylor designed and produced the first Automated Clamp Carrier. 这改变了夹具载体线的方向,并使其成为边缘胶机的行业标准. 我们的挑战者奖获奖者和决赛选手名单最能说明我们的创新历史:

Up until August of 2014, Taylor Manufacturing operated out of a 45,000 square foot factory in the city of Poughkeepsie, NY. Taylor had resided in this facility since 1911. 多年来,该建筑不断扩建和更新,以继续为我们的客户提供优质的机器. Today, Taylor Manufacturing, JLT Clamps, and Cameron Automation all reside in the same building, a 100,000 square foot facility in the town of Poughkeepsie, NY. Just minutes from our old facility, 我们的新工厂使我们能够扩大作为一个公司,并不断改进我们的制造工艺. 我们由经验丰富的专业人员和年轻工程师组成的平衡团队将继续开发新技术以提高效率, reliability, and product quality.

  • Chris Hacker - Southeast Regional Sales

    在我们的机械生产线上与我们的客户和分销商密切合作,我感到非常自豪. While providing the highest quality machinery and offering superior service, it is equally important, I believe, to help the customer find the right machine for their current and future needs. My success over the past 21 years at James L. Taylor Mfg & JLT Clamps是在木工行业建立长期合作关系的结果. Sales & Marketing has been and continues to be my main area of responsibility and expertise.

  • Bryan Smith - JLT Sales

    I had the pleasure of starting at James L. Taylor Mfg. Co. in February 2020. Prior to that, 我在当地一家气动元件经销商那里做了20年的外聘销售代表, technical support and customer service.  During that time JLT and I had a great working relationship.  In fact, one of my best sales memories with JLT as one of my premier customers at the time, was promoting the Dial Regulator.  这是我们的人字门夹制造的开始,它被证明是业内最好的.  So, when an opportunity presented itself to become part of the JLT family, I chose to make a fresh start and join their team.   

    你可以放心,我总共30年的销售经验使我不仅能胜任, 但我们渴望帮助我们的客户找到解决方案,以满足他们的制造需求,并支持我们的经销商网络.

    随时与我联系,帮助我们的任何JLT夹紧机或胶水摊布机和配件.  I look forward to providing you with top notch service as well as quality, made in the USA, machines that will keep producing year after year.
