PEI Acquires Fibertek to Expand U.S.-Based Manufacturing Capacity & Industry-Best Brand Offerings


PITTSBURGH, PA – August 4, 2020 - Pittsburgh Electrical Insulation, Inc. (PEI) is pleased to announce the acquisition of the Electrical Products Division of Fibertek, Inc. of Franklin, TN.


Fibertek, Inc. is a manufacturer of leading-edge specialty fiberglass tapes and high-performance laminates for electrical insulation applications in electric motors, generators, and transformers.


“We have long admired Fibertek’s products and performance in the market and are very excited to combine our resources,” said T.H. ‘Tip’ Paul, President and owner of PEI. “Bringing Fibertek under the PEI manufacturing group will add scope and depth to our capabilities with our converting and distributing business as well.”


History and Synergy:

Fibertek is one of the oldest privately-owned tape manufacturers in America, with a history dating back to 1898. Pittsburgh Electrical Insulation (PEI) is a manufacturer, converter, and distributor of electrical insulation materials based in Pittsburgh, PA with their own history dating back to 1947.


PEI’s founder, T. R. Paul, patented the first use and process of manufacturing a B-Stage Fiberglass Armature Banding Tape (originally trademarked as “Polyglass Banding Tape”) which became the standard for EMD and GE (formerly known as General Motors) to become the standard for DC equipment on a global level. PEI is still privately owned and operated by the Paul family and is in its 3rd generation of family ownership.


The newly acquired Fibertek brands consist of the following products:

  • Res-I-Glas Banding Tapes

  • Res-I-Straint Tadpole Edging Tape

  • Res-I-Band Banding Film

  • Res-I-Flex Sealable Armor Tape

  • Res-I-Lam Flexible Laminates
