TEQ

Thermoform engineered quality

TEQ, a subsidiary of ESCO Technologies, is a custom thermoformer located in Huntley, Illinois dedicated to providing high quality thermoformed plastic packaging and products to medical, electronic and commercial markets. ESCO acquired TekPackaging from Schawk Inc. in 1997.

Originally named TekPackaging, the history of TEQ begins with the acquisition of A.E Robinson, a manufacturer of retail package blisters in 1984 by Schawk, Inc. The company was renamed Robinson Industries and a year later moved into a new facility. Robinson was the first Chicago area company to offer a complete package of printed blister cards and thermoformed blisters.
