Tri-Art Manufacturing is a family run company that started producing artist’ acrylic paint as an off-shoot to an art supply store and gallery in Kingston called Art Noise. Production began on a small scale in the back of the store, producing one line of professional, acrylic colours. It was at this time, in 1994, that Tri-Art Manufacturing Incorporated was formed.
Tri-Art’s original goal was to produce the best product possible for artists. To this day, making quality products for every level of expression has remained our objective. The family of products has grown to include acrylic, oil, ink, airbrush, watercolour, tempera, and specialty paint lines for professionals to beginner painters, visual designers, and artisans.
Starting with 3 founding members and a single paint line, in a 100 square foot area, Tri-Art has grown to employ over 60 local staff, produce 20 different paint lines and make all the packaging for their products in a production area of over 29,000 square feet. Tri-Art Mfg. now sells products locally, nationally and internationally.
