Spill Tackle came to life in the Mississippi delta in 2009 in the heart of the Mississippi agricultural community. The Steinle family worked in their backyard developing spill tackle and testing its absorbency using inflatable swimming pools. The family tested the product in various situations, from used cooking grease and vehicle oil changes to spill paint. Spill Tackle performed extremely well each time. The family decided to have the product tested in a lab and found that the product had natural bio-remedial properties as well as a non-leaching capability.
Tackle Technologies was launched in the summer of 2012 with a goal to provide their customers a fully sustainable and recycled product line that would take place of existing clay absorbent products. After two years of product research, development, modification, and construction of a fully automated production plant, Spill Tackle was ready to launch.
