E.P.I. Incorporated was founded in 1983 by Mr. Weldon P. Taquino. The former fendering systems designer and lead project manager designed and patented the E.P.I. Compression type Shock Cell. This cell revolutionized the marine fender industry and became the heart of several completely fabricated barge bumper and dock fendering systems.
