About us

Company details

Tri Star Metals began its journey in 1985 in a small office in Hoffman Estates, IL as a broker of stainless steel and aluminum bar products. The original vision was simple, to build a premier distribution company by delivering a great quality product with unparalleled customer service. Within just two years, Tri Star moved into its first full service distribution facility in Carol Stream IL with just under 20,000 square feet of operating space.

The business began to flourish in the late 1980s through the 1990s. An exciting growth plan and vision for the future attracted top talent from the industry, and the establishment of a warm, family driven corporate culture has helped keep many of those initial hires intact to this day.

In 1996, Tri Star Metals decided to expand their offerings by selling cold drawn forming wire to existing bar customers. Tri Star became the exclusive distributor for Hagener Feinstahl, the largest independent redraw house in Europe. Tri Star quickly emerged as a market leader in Electropolish Quality wire, and ultimately committed to stock the largest inventory of this product in the US for next day shipment to its midwest and east coast customer base.
