Company Profile

Royal Ten Cate, the holding company for TenCate Geosynthetics Americas, is based in the Netherlands and is over 300 years strong having successfully consolidated and developed core markets to maximize value for investors and customers. Under Royal Ten Cate, TenCate Geosynthetics has locations in North America, Europe, and Asia, which consist of two commercial divisions. These two divisions are TenCate Geosynthetics and TenCate Industrial Fabrics.

TenCate Geosynthetics
TenCate Geosynthetics commercial division serves the geosynthetics industry with three brands in the Americas:  TenCate Mirafi®, TenCate Miragrid®, and TenCate Geotube®.  We deliver turnkey system solutions for the transportation construction, mechanically stabilized earth, erosion control, waste management, water management, and shoreline protection/marine structure construction markets.  Under these system solutions, we have a vast array of high performance geosynthetics that perform functions such as separation, filtration, soil reinforcement, erosion protection, sealing, stress relief, adhesive bonding, confinement, and drainage.

TenCate Industrial Fabrics
TenCate Industrial Fabrics commercial division serves the industrial fabrics market with four brands in the Americas:  TenCate Geotube®, TenCate Nicolon®, and TenCate Permatron®.  Our markets include dewatering, aquaculture, horticulture, agriculture, recreational, transportation/construction, filtration, containment, furniture, bedding, and specialty.  Our industrial fabric products surpass customer expectations, delivering high performance products to the markets we serve.
The market challenges us to continue delivering the most diverse line of geosynthetics and industrial fabrics in the world. We accept that challenge by helping our customers achieve tangible results. This fortifies our belief in the power of geosynthetic and industrial fabric solutions. It also strengthens our resolve to make a worldwide difference. 

While other manufacturing companies resisted the opportunity to confront nature’s most severe problems in the world, TenCate Geosynthetics welcomed the challenge by developing innovative solutions to an unforeseen application. TenCate Geosynthetics has helped not only itself through the development of a dike in Holland, but also its partners, to achieve results once thought impossible.  After 55 years, we have created the most sought after and diverse group of brands and materials than any other source in the world.

A true measure of our success is to create a synergy of products and people resulting in solutions that endure the test of time and its natural forces. 

That is why we make materials that make a difference.
