TATCO®, a division of Townend Aerospace Tool Company, Inc., is a family owned and operated business established in 1971.

Tatco offers the extended capability to service, repair, and calibrate all make and models of portable power tooling utilizing air, electric, or hydraulic power.

Tatco re-manufactures these used power tools to "as new" condition and supports the craftsmanship with a full warranty. These tools are available at a fraction of the cost of a new tool and are usually ready in less than 1 week after receipt of an order. Tatco is also a representative for a select group of portable power tool manufactures for customers desiring a specific tool type.

Tatco provides customers with a portable power tool maintenance and repair service. Many companies have recognized this service is less expensive than having tools repaired in house, and have been extremely satisfied with the turn around time and workmanship. Tatco will support its customers with "loaner" tools (when available) and if it has been determined that the tool will require extensive repair and will impact production operations if not immediately available.

Tatco also manufactures portable power tooling for "Special Applications" which are constantly developing in the Aerospace Industry. Tatco maintains an engineering staff highly experienced in the design and applications of pneumatic, electrical, and hydraulic power for the development of new tools when circumstances prevail. This would include tools for both the manufacture and maintenance of aircraft which are provided to several customers. Examples of such tools would be aircraft fuel boost pump removal tool and calibration tool for measuring differential air pressure on jet aircraft engines.
