TriStar Company Overview

TriStar was founded in 1988 on a core principle – we will serve our customers the way they want to be served.

TriStar is a company that specializes in Product Lifecycle Management (PLM).
We are a company big enough to provide the experience, expertise, resources and tools needed to help our customers succeed, yet small enough to ensure they get exactly the type of support and service they deserve.

We provide business advisory, process consulting, systems selection and implementation, as well as user adoption and training services. TriStar is also a Platinum member of the PTC Channel Advantage Program and is the largest Value Added Reseller of PTC products and services in the world. We help some of the world’s most recognized companies to operate more efficiently, achieve more profitable results and implement change by embracing PLM technology. Our approach focuses on building the right PLM foundation that integrates business strategy, processes, systems and people.

Everything we do focuses on helping our customers achieve results with PLM. Talk to our customers, learn how we have helped them become more competitive and productive through innovative PLM solutions.

PLM is what we do. We have experience across all aspects of Product Lifecycle Management, from creating the strategy, to advising on the right solution for you, to providing an implementation roadmap and training users.

Very few companies can claim they have been on the forefront of PLM for more than 20 years. At TriStar that is our passion! Our mission is to provide customers with the very best advice and expertise in choosing and implementing a PLM system.
