About Presto TaPe
Protective Adhesive Film Manufacturers
Presto Tape is a completely integrated manufacturer of specialty tapes, surface protection films, and digital print media. Presto Tape has been a family-owned company since it was established in 1991. Every facet of the production process is executed on-site for maximum quality control. From formulating our own adhesives to coating, slitting, finishing, packaging, warehousing, and shipping—it is all done under one roof. This allows us to offer the highest quality products at such competitive prices.
The Presto Tape Vision & Mission
Presto Tape has deep-rooted values and a mission to innovate, excel, and give back. We will never stop trying to make our products better and faster, we will continue to look for additional products to make and will hold ourselves to a high standard of excellence. When we achieve this, we will form a solid core and a strong team and that team will grow. Our growth will generate profits with a purpose. We will use those profits to fill the cup, which is symbolic of our team, our team’s families, and our owners. When that cup overflows, we will share a portion of our profits with those outside of our four walls.
