About the Member:
- Tri-Art Mfg. is a local, family run company that started producing artists' acrylic paint as an off-shoot to an art supply store and gallery in Kingston called Art Noise. They began production on a small scale in the back of the store, producing one line of professional, acrylic colours. It was at this time, in 1994, that Tri-Art Mfg. Incorporated was formed.
- Tri-Art's original goal was to produce the best product possible for artists. To this day, making quality products for every level of expression has remained their objective. Their family of products has grown to include acrylic, oil, ink, airbrush, watercolour and tempera paint lines for the professional to the beginner painters.
- Starting with 3 founding members and a single paint line, in a 100 square foot area, Tri-Art has grown to employ over 60 local staff, produce 20 different paint lines and make all the packaging for their products in a production area of over 29,000 square feet. Tri-Art Mfg. now sells products locally, nationally and internationally.
- Tri-Art Manufacturing is a company that has always been committed to being both environmentally conscious and responsible. As a manufacturer of paint and studio accessories, we recognize our responsibility, and will continue to explore and "think outside the box", to minimize our footprint and the footprint of what we produce on the environment. To that end, we have instituted a number of Green initiatives in our production methods, factory protocol and product development.
