A Long History of Unmatched Excellence

In the early 1970s, Paul D. Taylor and Ted W. Beaty realized that the inherent problems of steel buckets were severely limiting the potential of countless businesses. They realized that strong, resilient plastic buckets made out of polyethylene could be stronger, safer and more efficient than steel buckets.

Painstakingly Creating the Highest Functioning Bucket

Tapco has spent nearly 30 years in its large St. Louis-area facility, which houses in-house injection molding capabilities to maximize quality and minimize costs. With a variety of injection molding machines, including a wide range of presses, Tapco has the equipment and the experience to find a solution for any elevator bucket need.

Get The Best Bucket from North America’s Largest Inventory

Tapco’s enormous in-stock inventory includes over 1 million buckets and 15 million bolts, along with abundant options include abrasion-resistant sheeting, drag flights and hanger bearings on the same order. Additionally, our helpful, friendly and knowledgeable staff is ready to build a prosperous relationship with you for years and years into the future.
