The Teckrez Origin Story

Tom Eckhardt started Teckrez in 2005 as a company dedicated to improving supply and service to tackifier resin customers. Since its creation, Teckrez has undergone immense growth and positive change within its mission, industry, and team.

In the early 2000’s, Tom Eckhardt was the Global Business Director for tackifier resins at Arizona Chemical where Marc Jackson served as his Marketing Manager. In 2003, Tom and Marc began their first international visits to meet producers in the rapidly growing pine tree (bio-based) derivatives market. Many of the connections made on these visits later became supplier-partners to Teckrez. When Tom left Arizona Chemical in 2005 to create Teckrez, he had the help of Kim Eckhardt, who began establishing support capabilities and a foundational data management system. Teckrez’s early sales success was driven by providing superior customer options on smaller-volume, specialty grades.

In the late 2000s, an abundance of low-cost natural gas in North America and the increase in Asian crude oil processing changed the dynamics of the global petrochemical market. In response, Teckrez established key supplier-partner relationships in Asia to help its North American customers meet their requirements for hydrocarbon resins. The hydrocarbon product line grew quickly and led to the complete tackifier range offered today.

Marc rejoined Tom in 2018 with a mission to grow the business by developing a market for novel, hydrogenated C9 products and expanding Teckrez’s versatile C95 and C5 grades. Bio-based resin capabilities were expanded to include a key supply partnership in Brazil, establishing a strong foundation to support the growth of the Teckrez resin business. Marc’s past experience with creating and growing a successful US business helped Teckrez establish its acrylic monomer portfolio and add to the team of industry experts.

Today, Teckrez is a customer-focused company specializing in tackifier resins and acrylic monomers across a wide range of market segments. Teckrez offers a mix of products, supply-chain services, and knowledgeable customer support that is unmatched by competitors, and the company’s skilled team is committed to responsible and profitable growth.
