Since 1977, Tapis Corporation has been a pioneer in the development of high-performance fabrics for aircraft interiors. Throughout its 40-plus years in the industry, Tapis has grown as a woman-owned business with a corporate culture that is defined by superior customer service and a commitment to innovation.
Partnered with high-end suppliers, including Ultrafabrics and Ultrasuede, Tapis provides its customers with the most advanced and luxurious materials. Tapis’ products are found in the world’s leading airline fleets and business jets. The company’s innovative materials maximise passenger comfort, durability, weight savings and sustainability.
More than a textile supplier, Tapis offers an array of additional services, industry support, market intelligence, and innovative product research and development. Due to its 40-plus years of industry knowledge, Tapis has become a solution provider for all cabin interior needs.
Due to the demand for services, Tapis’ 38,000ft² Dallas complex is dedicated to flame-treatment, quality control and aviation testing services. The internal testing of materials leads to shorter lead times and trusted, quality results. Additionally, this facility enables Tapis to stock an extensive inventory of materials to promote rapid fulfilment of orders.
Tapis Corporation is committed to developing innovative products for aircraft interiors that set a new standard for sustainability. Tapis partners with suppliers that also value sustainability, which is why some of the materials offered by Tapis include bio-based resins, recycled polyester or plant-based materials. The company strives to improve its sustainability efforts daily to significantly reduce the carbon footprint of air travel. Through cleaner manufacturing processes, utilisation of recycled and plant-based materials, longer product life, and weight savings in all applications, Tapis plans to be a key player in the green future of the aviation industry.
