Trim-Tex was founded in 1969 by Joseph Koenig Sr., a displaced immigrant from Yugoslavia whose goals were to become an American citizen and a successful manufacturing entrepreneur. After receiving a request from a couple dealers in Indiana for a corner bead that wouldn't rust or dent, Joe Sr. forever changed the metal-dominated drywall industry when he invented the vinyl J bead. In 1989, Joseph Koenig Jr. joined the company to continue in his father’s footsteps. His passion and innovation have been an integral part of the company-wide achievement of 50 years in business.
The Trim-Tex legacy is built upon a foundation of dedication and diligence. Joe Sr.'s story is a true example of the American dream: an immigrant who, through hard work and perseverance, built a better life for himself and his family. America has offered the Koenig family, who still owns and operates the company, the opportunity to provide 50 years of drywall innovations and manufacturing jobs for American workers.
As Trim-Tex reaches their 50th anniversary milestone, this is a time to celebrate the success and growth of the company as the leader in the drywall industry. To commemorate this achievement, Trim-Tex will release a special 50th anniversary catalog. To show appreciation to their loyal customers, special dealer and contractor promotions will run throughout the year.The traditions and values that founder, Joseph Koenig Sr. integrated into Trim-Tex have been a vital aspect of their business philosophy and will continue to be passed down for generations to come. Trim-Tex takes immense pride in remaining a family-owned business and a proud U.S. manufacturer. Trim-Tex will continue to innovate and provide drywall solutions for their customers, with the goal to remain the industry leader for another 50 years to come.
