From humble beginnings and dream of company founder, John Legat, Trans Tech has become one of the worlds most successful industrial product decorating companies. Founded on January 29th, 1979, its core business was transfer pad printing. At the time few people in the United States were familiar with pad printing. The challenge was spreading the word about this relatively new technology and demonstrating the capability of this unique technology. In its 30 years Trans Tech has grown into a large family of over 75 employees. In fact, the employees now boast over 900 years direct product decorating experience.
Now in its fourth decade, Trans Tech has no intention of resting on its laurels. New capabilities and products are added regularly and 2009 will be no exception.

Some milestones in the company's history are:
