Through the years, it has been our vision that TLC International would one day become the world leader in the computerized mechanical technical glass cutting industry. We take this opportunity to thank each person who has contributed to making the dream of TLC International a successful reality. Special thanks, as well, are given to each customer which has placed confidence in TLC's equipment, service and technology and their continuing loyalty.
From the beginning, the master plan was, and remains still, that TLC will do everything possible to assist customers reach peak performance levels in high-accuracy thin flat glass singulation with the best available equipment and technology in the world, for an affordable price. Throughout my business career, spanning numerous years and much of the world, I have gained a vast insight into many peoples, cultures, and countries. Putting that knowledge, and experience to work, and sharing it with colleagues and customers, has contributed greatly to widening the scope and success of TLC International's global recognition and presence.
Since April 1998, when TLC International evolved from The Linden Company, it has been my humble privilege to spearhead and work closely with the TLC Engineering Development Team to develop the Gen-3 TLC Phoenix-600® from prototype to its current design/build. Adding the TLC Summit Gen-5® greatly expanded our scope, satisifying Gen-5 and Gen 5.5 manufacturing facilities.
TLC's definitive task is to incorporate "old-school" business ethics, honesty and integrity into every achievement and endeavor, no matter how small or insignificant. Our ongoing challenge is to provide ever-increasing value. Our ultimate goal is to ensure maximum equipment and manpower performance for every TLC customer - our partners in business - who are, above all, the reason TLC is the flourishing entity it is today.
