Commitment to Quality

The Tenax Group’s commitment to quality shows in our superior product line, and it all starts with our selection of raw materials. Tenax only uses 100% specially-selected raw materials. This means our resins are clean and unaltered. This ensures that our products provide the longevity, appearance and versatility our customers have come to expect from the Tenax brand. Our products are also treated for UV resistance, allowing for longer-term use and performance in the field. Our discriminating process for selecting raw materials places the Tenax Group in the forefront of quality in the industry.

Quality has always been a paramount objective for Tenax. Tenax was among the first plastics companies to achieve ISO 9002 certification in the early 1990’s. In 2014, Tenax achieved ISO 9001 certification.

The scope of this certification covers all design, manufacturing and sales under the Tenax trademark of extruded polymeric nets, geogrids, geocomposites, three-dimensional structures and related products.
This system is constantly updated using specific procedures targeted at on-going improvements in service and product quality.

One of the key characteristics that make Tenax different is our holistic capability to develop new products from design through production. This allows the group to respond extremely quickly to the specific requests of customers, and greatly reduce the amount of time needed to bring new products to market.

About Tenax Corporation

Established in Ohio in 1984 as a distribution center under the name of ATP (American Tenax Products), Tenax relocated to Jessup, Maryland in 1987 to open its first U.S. manufacturing facility. In 1993, the company expanded its operation and moved to our current location in East Baltimore.

Tenax gained world-wide fame with its first US-produced product-orange safety fence for building and construction sites-which quickly spawned imitators all over the world. Currently Tenax Corporation serves the USA, Canada, Mexico, and Central and South America with specialty products for netting and fencing, pipe protection, construction, agricultural, gardening and DIY applications.

Throughout the years of growth and expansion, Tenax Corporation has maintained our promise to be a pioneer in the Made in USA movement. Tenax uses only prime selected raw material and domestic suppliers in support of our business.
