Markel Corp

Endorse Company
Markel Corporation was founded in 1922 at our present location in Plymouth Meeting, Pennsylvania. Markel's initial product line consisted of braided textile-based sleeves coated in linseed oil which were used as insulation in vacuum tube radios. Markel's first fluoropolymer products were introduced in the 1950s and in 1978, Markel developed and patented PTFE based abrasion resistant cable liners in response to the need for improved efficiencies at higher temperatures in automotive accelerator and transmission shift cables. In 2000, Markel made a strategic decision to focus solely on fluoropolymer based products and reinvest for significant growth in this newly created core business.
