In 1956, from a dorm room at M.I.T., David J. McGrath jr. began taking on drafting projects for local engineering firms. It was a way for him to not only apply the skills he was honing through his college career, but also help offset his educational costs. His service idea garnered a great response, and soon after, The Associated Designers was born and became known as TAD, the branding we proudly carry to this day! From those beginnings developed a company dedicated to the technology industries that have grown to encompass every aspect of business. TAD Technical grew from servicing the Engineering sectors to support Information Technology, Scientific, Government Services, Energy, Aerospace and related technology driven businesses.
