Our History

TCH was founded by Les Mandelbaum, a passionate bass player and hobbyist ATA road case maker. When it became apparent that local musicians were more enamored with his road cases than music, he began pursuing the opportunity full-time and thus, TCH was born in 1976. TCH overcame the many challenges of being a new business and is now a top choice distributor in North America.

 

Our roots are in the case hardware industry. However, we have diversified our portfolio of products and spread to different market segments over the years.

Our Focus

ATA Case Hardware

TCH started operating in 1976, primarily serving musicians and businesses in the entertainment industry. TCH hardware and laminates were used in the production of musicians’ ATA cases, DJ road cases and in the setup of event stages. Today, we supply and distribute various case hardware components ranging from handles, catches, latches, casters, foam inserts along with extrusions and speaker parts.

Electronic Components

TCH acquired Rush Electronics in 2012 and began its foray in to electro-mechanical hardware. TCH sources and distributes electronic components to serve many industries including Industrial Controls, Lighting, Aviation and HVAC. We now serve electro-mechanical hardware from over thirty manufactures.

Access Hardware

TCH distributes a range of products from partnered manufacturers for various industries such as aviation, healthcare and integrated technology. We represent and distribute handles, gas springs, fasteners, drawer slides, electronic access hardware and much more.

Foam Fabrication

In order to better serve our customers with a one-stop shop experience in our case hardware business, we established a Custom Foam service. Using waterjet cutting technology, we have the capability of providing custom packaging inserts for all our customers’ needs. An abrasive water jet cutting (AWJ) technology is used for metals and tougher materials, allowing us to produce in-house customized designs and one-off samples for our clients.
