Tycos Company History is as follows. On-Line free Ref.: The Taylor Automation Heritage by Fritz Ruebeck, Classic Automation
The Taylor Company in its early years, had been involved in many acquisitions including a controls company called Davis & Roesch Temperature Controlling Company. In 1907, Taylor consolidated and reorganized itself into Taylor Instrument Companies and began using the trade name of Tycos. This trade name was used exclusively until 1932 in which the Taylor name was then used.
The company had a long history of technical innovation and investment. This commitment was evident early in its history when it started what is believed to be the first R&D department in the American instrument industry in 1911.
