About Us

Mission:
We are a group of people who love fabrication, love to make new things, and improve on already existing things. We also like to make them look good, too! If you have a project that you would like to come to fruition, we can make it happen. We love a challenge, and we love to make things better than anticipated. 

Why Turtles?:
So, you may be asking yourself, “Why turtles?” Well, it’s not because we are slow. Besides, the tortoise did beat the hare. We take our time and ensure every piece we make gets the attention it needs to really shine. We do not take the path of the hare, and rush through things to quickly reach the end. Like a turtle’s carapace, our products are durable, and will stand the tests of time, while still remaining elegant.

About the Owners:
Joey Sacco and Tegan Strautmann met at the College of Engineering at the University of South Florida, where they both graduated with a Bachelor degree in Mechanical Engineering. When they both went to live the lives of "corporate America" and couldn't stand it, they decided to blend their hobbies together, and decided to create a business in which to perfect their hobby and share it with everyone. This is when Turtle Laboratories was born.
