A TydenBrooks Innovation Case Study


TydenBrooks is built around innovation. Starting as a leading toy company back in 1870, EJ Brooks Co. transitioned into the leading security seal manufacturer, patenting its first security seal in 1873. Ever since then TydenBrooks has spent over 145 years creating new security solutions and strategies for their loyal customers. 


Manufacturing Innovation


TydenBrooks was the first to introduce the plastic security seal to the America market over 50 years ago. Prior to this innovation, security seals were made of metal. Since the introduction of plastic seals, they have continued to grow in popularity. In 2017, we expanded our plastic indicative seal production substantially allowing us to produce 25% more of our extremely popular Plastic Truck Seal and 65% more of our All Seal and Equilock security seals. “This additional capacity [improved] our already industry leading production times and allows us to fulfill orders in little as one week.” Dan Tascarella, Plant Manager of TydenBrooks’ Tallapoosa, GA facility said. From TydenBrooks’ beginning 145 years ago, we have prided ourselves in our manufacturing innovation.  



Product Innovation


When it comes to product innovation, TydenBrooks takes pride in developing new products and security solutions. Last year, in 2017, we formed a strategic alliance with the Miami-based manufacturer of hybrid security seals, Sealock Security Systems. With this alliance, we added the Sealock SL and SL-C, hybrid cargo security device consisting of a barrier locking bar and indicative cable seal, to our expansive product selection. 2017 also saw our release of one of our most popular cable seals, the EZ Loc Plus which provides unparalleled security of our EZ Loc with the added benefit of increased tamper evidence and improved marking capability. In 2018 we introduced our new line of tamper evident security bags, our Quick Loc 1.0 and Flex Bolt seal all of which have customization options that can tailor them to a business’ specific needs. Over the years we have also added several non-security seal products to our catalog making us a one-stop-shop for all your security needs. These essential non-security seal products include security tapes and labels, name badges, access cards, and packing enhancements. With new products being introduced to the market, TydenBrooks continues our legacy of innovation, quality, and manufacturing.


Security Strategy Innovation

Our innovation doesn’t end with our manufacturing and products, it also includes working to introduce and implement successful security strategies for our loyal customers. Over the years we have developed our multi-layered security seal strategies which involve using multiple TydenBrooks security products to greatly increase security systems. We also use our expert knowledge of security to help markets overcome challenges that they face in securing their value chains. With the advancement of technology comes the advancement of theft methods. Criminals are always coming up with new ways to compromise shipments and make off with product costing companies billions each year. One example of our ability to overcome these challenges came when one of America’s largest and most storied railroads approached us because their seal provider was failing to meet security standards. The railroad needed a reliable hardened bolt seal that would meet the American Association of Railroads’ Green Seal Initiative while also delivering better tracking in rail shipments of new cars and trucks. We rose to the occasion and after listening to what they needed, suggested the Global Auto Loc, a hardened bolt seal that features numbered and colored lock bodies that can be laser marked with barcodes. This seal proved to be stronger than their current seal, which was low-quality and easily removed even without the use of any tools. In addition, we also developed a product that allowed the customer quicker response and seal connectivity. This example is just one of many that shows TydenBrooks’ ability to rise to challenges and provide our customers with quality solutions that will strengthen and enhance their security systems
