Corporate History

In 1982, CEO Richard Cedrone founded TriStar in Worcester, Massachusetts, a bustling manufacturing city 45 miles west of Boston.

Current president, David Mello, joined the team in 1990 and soon established the fabrication and manufacturing divisions; enabling TriStar to provide a continuum of services from prototype right through to production.

A team was rapidly built, and the company’s reputation strongly developed. In 1992, TriStar opened its new corporate office in Shrewsbury, MA. This allowed management to not only expand its physical base, but also expand its vision for the growing plastics engineering company.

The company also began adding branches in North Carolina (1988), California (1993), Chicago (2006). In addition, it established manufacturing of the Ultracomp Bearing line (1997) and the manufacturing of the CJ Bearing line (2006). And with the purchase of a surface sciences company, TriStar was now able to chemically alter plastic materials for enhanced surface modification.

In 2018, the company earned the International Organization for Standardization’s (ISO) 9001:2015 re-certification for implementing quality management systems for the custom fabrication and manufacturing of composite self-lubricating bearing materials.

With over a thirty-seven-year legacy of developing and manufacturing plastic components — and a growing Enhanced Materials Division — TriStar Plastics Corp. combines a solid foundation with a clear vision for the future.
