Our history

It all began when the company was founded in 1986 as Medical Materials Corporation (MMC). The primary market for MMC was materials for the fabrication of medical foot orthotics. This was the beginning of the company’s TL brand—including TL-2100, TL-6000, and TL-Silver—which is still the foremost premium orthotic material on the market, celebrating over 30 years of proven performance.

Later, MMC was renamed to Performance Materials Corporation (PMC) as the company entered other markets (e.g., athletic footwear, recreational, industrial, etc.) and acquired Baycomp Company in 2001.

TenCate acquired PMC in June 2012 and the company was renamed TenCate Performance Composites (TCPC). In July 2018, TCPC was acquired by Toray Industries and today is named Toray Performance Materials Corporation (Toray PMC).

Toray PMC remains the leading supplier of high-performance continuous fiber-reinforced thermoplastic (CFRT®) composite materials to the sporting goods, computer, construction, automotive, medical, and other markets.
