As Carrollton, Texas’s business sector booms and retail establishments drive that growth, one company keeps everything moving forward – Tidel.

A provider of cash-management solutions that secure and automate retail cash environments to help retailers improve efficiency, reduce risk and boost profit, Tidel has decades of experience helping retailers that are the cornerstone of communities and industries across the nation.

It’s a simple goal – as Tidel puts it, the company strives to manufacturer products and deliver solutions that “deliver long-term, sustained growth through market leading innovation.”

And it’s all made in America.

On this episode of MarketScale’s Original Series: Made in America, we head to Carrollton to see how Tidel serves its ever-expanding customer base and how it plays an integral role in the fabric of its community.

A Part Of The Community

The company found its way to the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex back in the 1970s, when it was a subsidiary of 7-Eleven. The iconic convenience store saw the value in the new invention of the time-delay safe to protect its stores and employees in case of a robbery, and became the company’s first major client with an order that exceeded the young company’s manufacturing abilities at the time.

As a result, 7-Eleven and the then Southland Corporation decided to join forces, and Southland relocated from Seattle to the same area as the headquarters of 7-Eleven. Throughout the years, Tidel has gone through a name change and three different facilities, but all have been in Carrollton, TX.

Adapting To The Future

Tidel’s goal is to stay on the cutting edge of its industry and looks to inspiration from around the world. The manufacturer has adopted the Japanese method of the Kanban System, as well as making an investment in 3D printing. Printing their own components has allowed them to be agile in producing a part at scale without needing a mold and creating utilitarian parts that help introduce added functionality while maintaining certain aesthetic standards.
