T and T Industries, Inc. was founded in 1942 and is one of the largest manufacturers of twist-ties and other labeling and tying products in the U.S. The Company invented the twist-tie, and its Twist-Ems® brand of ties was the first twist-ties to be issued a U.S. patent. The Company maintains leading positions in each of the three markets in which it competes: Generic twist-ties, Label Identification and Packaging twist-ties, labels, and tags, and Vine (vineyard) ties. In 1994, Marwit sponsored the management buyout of the Company from London-based Berisford International PLC. In 1998, Marwit managed the sale of the Company to a private equity firm.
