Metal stamping shop marks 70 years in business

Posted by freemexy on April 17th, 2021

This year marks the 70th anniversary for Tripar, a Montreal-based metal stamping manufacturer. Tripar was founded in 1949 as a small job shop by two brothers, Ben and David Sevack, recent immigrants from England following the Second World War who, given the option of settling in New York or Montreal, chose the latter to call home. In its infancy, the shop took on any stamping and fabricating projects it could. It wasn’t until the early 1960s that the brothers found their sweet spot in the lighting sector.To get more news about lighting hardware supply, you can visit official website.

Montreal was booming throughout the ‘70s, and Tripar took advantage of this by supplying surrounding companies with metal stampings, making many of the light fixtures and lamp parts for the region’s manufacturers.

"We were expanding our range of lighting parts for different companies, not just in Canada, but spreading out into the Greater Toronto Area, Upstate New York, and New England," said Andrew Gordon-Stewart, sales and marketing manager for Tripar. "We really focused on the northeast region."

In 2001 Tripar added another family member to the team when Ben’s son Lloyd, an engineer by trade, joined the company. Lloyd brought his savvy business acumen and was able to navigate the 2008 recession and pull the company through a time when domestic manufacturing became very challenging. Gordon-Stewart said that part of the reason Tripar was able to manage during the recession was that the company had very little debt, owning all its machines and building.
