About Tripar

Tripar was founded in Montreal in 1949 by Ben Sevack and has remained a family-run company. Tripar went into its second generation of the Sevack family when Ben’s son Lloyd, P.Eng, joined in 2001. Lloyd’s daughter Lauren joined the company in 2013, bringing three generations of the Sevack family into the company.

Over the last 70+ years, Tripar has progressed from a small stamping job shop in downtown Montreal to a 67,500 sq.ft. facility offering a full range of metal stamping and CNC metal fabrication capabilities. This progression is due to the fact that Tripar always aims to employ the best practices and offer our clients optimal quality, design assistance, manufacturing and delivery, all at competitive prices to allow OEMs the best chances to succeed in highly competitive markets. We strive to quote fast and be as competitive as possible while being easiest to do business with.
