In 1971, John Kaminski had the vision to see the ever-expanding need for converted tape products. He brought his experience as a chemist and a background in pressure-sensitive tapes at Mystic Tape to develop fabricated parts for his first customers. With his adored wife, Marcella Kaminski, they built the MBK converting tape business.
Beginning with a worktable in the family garage and the “Little Joe” machine, they cut shrink tubing to length, primarily for the aerospace and electronics industries. Seeing the need for tape component parts for end products, he purchased and renovated used machines and moved to a 15,000 sq. ft. facility in Chatsworth, California.
His son and daughter, Jeffrey and Judith, began learning the trade on weekends and school holidays. As the business grew little by little the ideas of the endless possibilities for tape uses rocketed. Judith went to work full-time in 1978 after graduating from California State University Northridge, and Jeffrey went to work for 3M upon his graduation from San Diego State University. The Kaminski family had learned at an early age that tape was indispensable. In the late fall of 1979, John Kaminski suddenly became ill and passed away.
Jeffrey, Judith, and Marcella made plans for keeping MBK an ongoing enterprise. Jeffrey resigned from 3M, and the three of them began to learn everything they could about converting. In 1980, MBK Enterprises was incorporated and a year later, Marcella retired from her role as bookkeeper.
Since 1971, MBK has grown and moved to larger facilities four times, remaining in Chatsworth, California. Over the years, MBK has developed long-lasting partnerships with our suppliers and customers. With the rapid rise of the Internet, MBK Enterprises, Inc. was changed to MBK Tape Solutions to better reflect their tape business.
Today, the customer base has changed greatly from 50 years ago. More and more are being accomplished in the fields of medical devices, wearables, information technology, and every niche in between. The company has invested extensively in state-of-the-art converting equipment, as well as the training of its employees in the workplace. MBK loves the challenge of finding the most advanced cost-effective materials and solutions for our customer’s unique applications.
In December 2021, MBK was acquired by Boyd Corporation. Working under one umbrella, MBK has expanded its global footprint. Operating in facilities on three continents enables rapid design and prototyping, scalable manufacturing, and product redundancy. With Boyd’s material resources and advanced technologies, we can provide integrated innovative solutions for our customers. We look forward to the next 50 years with Boyd, serving our customers’ needs for component manufacturing and reliable quality products.
