The TriStar Advantage

The TriStar Advantage

What does the TriStar Advantage mean for you?

The TriStar Advantage


The TriStar advantage means we have a comprehensive circle of services that include:

advantage-button-engineering advantage-button-fabricationadvantage-button-manufacturing

We have all the resources you need, when you need them. No more cobbling together separate sources to get the job done. We have it right here for you… In-house.

We can assist you with everything from engineering advice to building your prototypes. And when it comes to material selection, we have one of the widest selections of products available today.

Most of our competitors provide just one area of service, but you’ll be hard-pressed to find another company that offers a complete circle of services… from education to production.

At TriStar, the Advantage Is Yours


Your in-house plastics engineering department.


Helping to choose the right design and materials.


Building components for your evaluation.


Delivering Superior Quality at a competitive price.


Our technical staff is dedicated to helping you choose the right material and component geometry for your application. Our customers benefit from our ongoing research of the latest products, as well as our design experience in thousands of applications for over 70 industries. In fact, very few, if any, of our competitors have dedicated degreed plastics engineers, chemists, or polymer scientists on staff.

From our in-house engineers assisting you with your application to a member of our technical team visiting your facility and conducting seminars to educate your staff on how and when to use the right material, our goal is clear: to become your in-house plastics engineering department.

Key Services: Material ID/research, CAD/CAM services, component geometry, calculating PV, on-site technical seminars
