TTCM China, Inc. and its subsidiary, Tianjin Tianlian Composite Material Company, Ltd. (collectively TTCM), China's leading supplier of glass-reinforced plastic piping and associated products, is looking to the Americas to broaden its market.
Founded in 1995, TTCM's core business is the production, processing and sales of glass-reinforced plastic pipes wrapped with sand inclusion and glass-reinforced plastic products. Its primary products include various types of regular and high-pressure pipes, fittings, round containers, cooling towers, and fans. The Company is also engaged in the development and production of new high polymer synthetic material.
