Teakdecking Systems is an innovative, employee-owned company that manufactures, installs, and distributes premium decking products for the global marine market. Products are crafted to the highest quality standards, using the best, legally obtained materials. Teakdecking Systems leads and influences the market with strict quality requirements, the highest level of ethics, a commitment to sustainability, passionate employees, and pinnacle service for customer satisfaction.
Teakdecking Systems (TDS) changed the way boat decks were built by introducing novel Swedish technology to the marine industry in 1983. Since that time, the well-managed, self-funded, employee-owned organization has continued to serve a traditional market with innovation, and corporate social responsibility.
When caulking products in the market could not meet TDS quality standards, the team developed a proprietary formulation. The same is true for decking adhesives and cleaners. Even competitors purchase these products to build and maintain their decks. The US government only entrusts TDS products for iconic museum battleship repair and restoration.
Teak is legally-sourced from Myanmar verified by DNA tracing, and TDS wood experts personally select the timber. TDS proudly donates to The Nature Conservancy to support its efforts to promote reforestation.
All work performed by TDS is fully warrantied, and just as the products are supported, so are the employees. As part of an ESOP, the diverse groups of 100+ employees receive some of the most generous benefits of companies in the local community. With time, they become vested in the company.
Following Teakdecking Systems is like riding a well-built traditional yacht that can weather storms, but will also surprise its passengers with agility and innovation.
LOCATIONS: Headquarters and manufacturing are in Sarasota, FL, and in 2020, TDS purchased assets of Teak Solutions SL, with an office in Barcelona, Spain, and manufacturing in Valencia, Spain.
