The Lycos story

After coming across solid surface while installing residential countertops in 2004, Jon Taylor, president of Lycos, discovered his passion. He began attending trainings around the country learning how to fabricate solid surface and started performing the work out of his garage. In 2007, he decided to take a risk and left residential construction to rent a warehouse property in Iowa and start Lycos, Inc. Since then, Lycos has expanded into two divisions: Lycos Finish and Lycos Manufacturing. Lycos Finish focuses on finish carpentry and accessory installation, whereas Lycos Manufacturing continues the core practice of solid surface fabrication. Since founded, we have grown to 70 employees with two locations: our office HQ in Omaha and our manufacturing facility in Treynor, IA. We currently have fabrication and installation teams across Nebraska and Iowa including Kearney, Des Moines, Lincoln, and Omaha.
Lycos Finish provides installation services for division 6, 8, 10, 11, and 12 for the commercial construction industry. For every job, we provide a project manager and foreman to oversee our installation crews located across 
Nebraska and Iowa. 
Lycos Manufacturing is a leading fabricator of solid surface material for the commercial construction industry. Our advanced thermoforming capabilities and digital templating technology allow us to create custom designs for your 
unique space. 


Lycos core values


We believe success comes from collaboration from everybody. Our best work has stemmed from successful collaboration with our team and yours.


From the early stages of a project to post-construction, we strive to improve performance, productivity, time management, and more for our employees, our vendors, and our clients.


We are always evaluating our quality before, during, and after a project. From start to finish, we value quality service, quality carpentry, and quality products.


We like to think outside the box. We approach all aspects of our business aiming to solve inefficiencies in the field, in the shop, and in the office.


Honest, open communication is the only way to do business. So whether it's good news or bad news, we are always upfront and transparent.


We believe in always doing the right thing. We hold ourselves to the highest ethical standards and always treat our employees, clients, and partners with respect.


100% committed to safety

We take safety seriously. Every project is evaluated to ensure that the proper steps are in place and potential liabilities are addressed before we're ever on site. Each day is started with a safety meeting led by our foremen in the field. Top of the line tools are provided to our installation teams on job sites to reduce risk of malfunction and misuse. All employees are drug-tested and receive training for OSHA, CPR, fall protection, forklift, and infectious disease control.
