On December 23, 2020, Scott Tanis sold Tanis Incorporated to private investor Nick Mallinger. Tanin Incorporate was started by Scott and his late father, Chuck Tanis, 33 years ago and has grown during that time to include three manufacturing facilities and 121 employees. Tanis provides industrial and medical customers a complete line of brush configurations for surface conditioning, sealing, materials movement, cleaning and many other applications.
Scott Tanis says, “Retiring and selling the company is bitter-sweet, but I know I am leaving the company in great hands. I am confident the Tanis name will continue to grow stronger under its new leadership and I’m excited to see what’s in store.”
Nick Mallinger, a private investor, acquired Tanis Incorporated on December 23, 2020 and is now the company’s President and CEO. Mallinger previously ran Metal-Era, a family business based in Waukesha, Wisconsin, owned by the Mallinger family prior to its sale earlier in 2020.
Mallinger stated, “I know I have huge shoes to fill with Scott no longer with the company, but I know over time I will do my best to keep the same family culture that has been in place since 1987. I am excited to continue the Tanis legacy by providing the industry with leading customer-centric service and quality products.”
