In 1946, Nick Tacony started a business selling and servicing sewing machines from the basement of his home. He invested his entire savings in used machines, motors and parts. And he began to build a dream.
Soon Nick Tacony became a leader among sewing machine entrepreneurs. In the 1950’s he expanded his business by wholesaling sewing parts, accessories and other merchandise to retailers in the Midwest. Over the next two decades, the business grew with the acquisition of two important competitors on the East Coast. Each added to the Tacony network of distribution centers and increased the organization’s customer base.
In 1970, after completing his college degree in business administration and four years in the United States Air Force, Ken Tacony joined his father in the business. With a solid foundation in place, Tacony Corporation began to market and sell diversified products to customers inside and outside the sewing industry. By offering a wide range of consumer appliance products, Nick Tacony anticipated consumer demands and responded to market trends. This market approach typified the company’s growth
Tacony Corporation has assembled an organization of hundreds of dedicated people who blend experience, youth and innovative spirit. This, along with individualized expertise in sales and marketing for each specific product division, combined with highly efficient administration and distribution techniques, keeps Tacony and its customers competitive. Tacony is a major import, export, manufacturing and marketing company that offers a wide range of exceptional consumer products. As a result, in 1998 Tacony incorporated a new strategic theme, “the one source”®. By providing a more diverse line of products from one supplier, Tacony offers its customers the advantage of products, parts and service that enables them to operate more efficiently and profitably.
