In 1959, TACO Metals Founder Dave Kushner took a small Miami-based aluminum railing fabrication company and grew it into an established metal and marine manufacturing full-service enterprise with more than 110 employees today. In the early 1970s, TACO Metals entered the marine market as South Florida became known as a mecca for the recreational marine industry. We recognized a market and became quickly identified as a primary source supplier for the marine industry.

The Next Generation of TACO

Over the years, TACO grew to include regional warehouses throughout Florida, Tennessee and South Carolina while also expanding its company into international markets. Additionally, Dave’s three sons, Jon, Mike and Bill, followed in their father’s footsteps and led TACO after he retired in the early 90s.

On the Forefront of Innovation

The Kushner brothers took their passion for the marine industry to become leaders on the forefront of innovation – developing new products, such as the Grand Slam line of outrigger mounts and poles, universal replacement Rub Rail Kits, flex-chrome inserts, Rub Rail-integrated navigation lights, ball and socket canvas top fittings and Capri Helm Seats. Today, we continue to grow organically through our ongoing commitment to innovation and product design.

Relationships to Last a Lifetime

We attribute our success over the past 60 years to developing a strong supply chain, which includes valued partnerships with our suppliers and customers – boat builders, marine fabricators, distributors and dealers.
