Phoenix, AZ – TriStar Incorporated completed its acquisition today with BRT Solutions, Canada’s leading Product Lifecycle Management Company.
“Combining resources with BRT makes a lot of sense for the Canadian customers. With our combined unified team we have expanded product and service offerings that will be good for the market,” says TriStar President Patrick Maderia, “I welcome the opportunity to expand TriStar’s footprint with this acquisition and am excited about the increased offerings towards the Canadian market.”
Named recently as one of Canada’s top growing companies by Profit Magazine, BRT Solutions enhances TriStar’s standing as the best source for PLM and Product Development applications.
In addition to the PTC Product line, BRT sold TriStar its Invention Machine Business. Invention Machine offers their industry leading solution “Goldfire” to the manufacturing companies. Companies using Goldfire drive sustainable innovation to boost top-line revenue and minimize costs by conceiving of more and better product concepts (often generating concepts they would never otherwise conceived of), creating more competitively differentiated products, solving technical problems faster and more readily identifying and meeting new market opportunities.
TriStar also obtains Canada’s preferable basis of Enterprise Resource Planning, adding to its long list of total solution services. This exceptional growth confirms its expertise in the fields of PLM and product development.
TriStar began serving the CAD/CAM markets in 1988 by providing high-performance workstations and servers for the engineering environment. TriStar became a PTC Platinum Authorized Reseller in 2001, offering the full line of PTC software and certified training. Today, TriStar is PTC’s leading provider in the United States and Canada and offers a complete range of engineering products and services including software; training; PLM, CAD, and CAM implementation and consulting services; and professional staffing services.
