This month we're featuring Trica, an innovative Canadian furniture manufacturer, as part of our manufacturers spotlight series.
Trica was founded in 1988 by the Caron brothers.
Designed in-house by Trica head designer Francois Caron, Trica’s designs represent a passionate and innovative take on modern furniture that is perfectly adapted to urban living. Strongly influenced by classic European modernism, Trica’s furniture blends today’s cool, clean, urban chic with unmatched durability and function to create furniture that is tailored to fit your life.
All Trica furniture is hand-built by skilled craftsmen in our facility just outside of Montreal, Canada. The Caron brothers still own and operate the company located in St-Jerome (Quebec) Canada.
Trica advocates and promotes a society dominated by knowledge, democratic relations, and a culture of entrepreneurship, innovation, and openness towards new ideas.
Trica provides its employees with a safe work environment, health insurance, learning possibilities, equal opportunities for work and professional development, and multiple social benefits. They also do a ton of team events!
Trica recognizes its responsibility as a global citizen and is continually striving to reduce the environmental impact of the work we do and the products we create. At Trica, we try to educate employees to make more sustainable choices at work and at home, and we encourage suppliers, vendors, and business partners, to be environmentally responsible. We believe that environmental protection is a priority for the conservation of precious natural resources and the continued health of our planet.
Our manufacturing processes are carefully controlled to be as green as possible without affecting quality or durability. We focus on using recycled materials as well as non-toxic paints, coatings, and finishes.
Trica frequently contributes to local charities such as United Way and Pallia-Vie, a palliative care home.
Are there any big changes in the way you will run your business post-COVID-19?
We will continue to run our business as before: we will continue to offer great customer service, quality products, and put innovation at the center of our product development process.
What are your thoughts on the future in terms of the furniture industry?
We are optimistic about the future of the furniture industry. Because of the pandemic, we believe people will be inclined to spend more time at home and travel less. They will want their homes to look and feel great and will be buying new furniture.
