President’s Message

I want to introduce you to Ben Clements & Sons, Inc., which is known by many, by our well-known trademark name Tach-It.  My name is Steven Clements, and I have the privilege to be the current owner, and President.   My father, Alan Clements started our company in 1963.  He brought on his two brothers and they named the company after their father who served as the first CEO and established their international headquarters in South Hackensack New Jersey where we are still located today.


We started selling tag attaching and joining systems to garment markets under the Tach-It trademark and continue to be a major supplier of these products today.  While striving to diversify into other product lines and utilizing our extensive injection molding capabilities, we started manufacturing and marketing a full line of box cutters and U.L. recognized cable ties.

During the early 1980’s and in a joint venture with a well-known Japanese manufacturer, Tach-It began importing and selling twist tie machinery and materials for the sealing of plastic bags and in 1986, I joined the team.


During a visit to Interpack in Germany in 1996, and after meeting with Siat of Italy, a major international manufacturer of pressure sensitive tape dispensers and applicators, Ben Clements and Sons, Inc. agreed to become their North American sales agents.  Since that time, Tach-It has completed and complimented their product lines by adding many new and unique models of pressure sensitive tape dispensers and applicators, as well as a full assortment of label dispensers and applicators and automated labeling systems.


We have become the leading supplier for entry level automation into the 3PL, Fulfilment, Shipping, and Packaging markets.
