About Us

24/7/365

Thermoplastic Industrial Replacement (TIR) was founded in 1995 as a manufacturer and regional supplier of parts for the plastic processing industry.

With 27+ years in experience, TIR has developed and maintained longstanding relationships with our customers by providing quality solutions found through strong attention to detail while remaining accessible to our customers.

Our feedscrew and barrel designs are recognized within the plastics industry not only for their exceptional performance, but for longevity as well. We continue to be a leader in replacement parts for the profile extrusion, compounding, sheet extrusion, recycling, caps and closures, blown film, color compounding and injection molding industries.

TIR operates with hands on owners. There are no absentee owners. When you call, you talk to people with a vested interest in your company. We have very few management levels, and consequently, can usually solve problems, offer ideas, and give answers on your initial call.

Designing

From coaxial cable to refrigerator gaskets, we've designed feedscrews optimal for stability, mix and high output

Manufacturing

We have extensive experience designing ABS, PE, PP non-vented, vented and double-vented feedscrews that have eliminated surging, produced a more consistent mix and greatly reduced the need for pre-drying.

Compounding and Recycling

When high output and homogenous mix are what you are looking for, TIR has designed large diameter (3.5" to 13") feedscrews that have significantly increased output and reduced wear.
