TriMark Corporation, a designer and manufacturer of hardware products for the recreational vehicle, agricultural, truck, construction, and industrial enclosure markets, is celebrating its 40th anniversary in 2011.
In 1971, TriMark was founded in New Hampton IA as a tool and die shop. In 1975, it developed a heavy-duty rotary latch for Winnebago Industries motor homes and Caterpillar construction equipment. This product line was the foundation for the 050-0100 two-rotor latch that spawned the current vehicle door hardware product line.
TriMark employees in 1989 purchased the company and made it 100% employee-owned. In 40 years, the firm has grown from 10 employees to more than 300. In 1999, TriMark Service and Replacement Parts Division was launched and is situated in a 9,600-square-foot facility in New Hampton.
