TalleyRand Industries (TRi) is the food processing and safety products manufacturing division of BTX Industries, Inc.


Originally established in 1999 to provide domestic inventory stock from our centrally located warehouse in Independence, MO as a value-added service to our direct import customers, TRi has grown to become a premier supplier of protective apparel, storage and specialty products for the food, safety and industrial supply markets.

Over the past ten years, our product offering has evolved in response to feedback from our customers regarding additional products that they wanted to purchase from TRi. Using our extensive manufacturing and process engineering experience, we developed a core offering of TRi branded PPE, safety and industrial supply products to meet these opportunities. Due to the evolution of our just-in-time delivery model and in order to provide the most competitive pricing possible to our direct import customers, we phased out our domestic offering of commodity items in 2006.

In addition to the items currently available through our domestic warehouse, TRi can provide private-label items in container and less-than-container quantities of most commonly purchased food processing and safety apparel items. We also specialize in the development and improvement of new items on an exclusive supply basis for our customers. Please contact our sales department for warehouse pricing and for further information on our custom manufacturing, private-label and direct import programs.
