About TekModo:
TekModo manufactures and sells composite panels that are currently being used in the walls, roofs, floors and doors of RVs, buses and trailers. TekModo’s products are lighter, stronger and more durable than the wood products they replace, and are also resistant to water, mold and mildew. In addition, many of TekModo’s products can be produced in one continuous sheet, increasing the impact strength and eliminating the aesthetic and physical drawbacks of panel seams.

TekModo’s head office and 50,000 sq ft manufacturing facility is based in Elkhart, Indiana, located within a 30- minute drive of 80% of its customer base.

Through its manufacturing company, TekModo Structures LLC, TekModo has developed a number of advanced stage composite products that were introduced to the market earlier this year, with additional products in the pipeline.

Through its distribution company, TekModo LLC, TekModo has exclusive North American distribution rights for two products in the markets they serve. SymaLITE is an automotive grade sidewall composite substrate engineered to replace wood panels for both exterior and interior walls, ceiling and floor structures. TekModo currently sells SymaLITE to several major RV manufacturers for use in sidewall substrates, front wraps and rear walls. CosmoLite, which is a TekModo branded product, is a semi-rigid, continuously reinforced fiberglass and thermoplastic composite designed to replace plywood in hard-roof membranes, floor substrate and external skins. TekModo currently sells CosmoLite to several major RV manufacturers, bus manufacturers and commercial trailer manufacturers.
