Trico Packing and Print Solutions Inc., formerly Trico Evolution (established in 1984), is a commercial printer and industrial packaging and product supplier. Michael Hothi, President and Owner, purchased the assets of Trico Evolution on February 28, 2020 and rebranded it as Trico Packing and Print Solutions Inc. just at the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic. In an effort to help support Canadians, and to do his part for the “Ontario Together” initiative, Michael made a strategic decision to pivot the business, obtained his MDEL (Medical Device Establishment License) for import and distribution of personal protective equipment (PPE) and has since worked to expand the MDEL to include manufacturing. TricoPPS occupies nearly 60,000 sqft in the Hunt Club and Prince of Wales area, has reworked its warehousing space, and has purchased 3 machines capable of producing nearly 7 million surgical grade masks monthly. A truly Made in Canada Solution.
Trico produces custom-manufactured business materials, often from paper or synthetic materials. We also procure a range of industrial supplies and products from around the world for businesses and consumers. Our focus is primarily paper packaging and commercial printing, an industry with a long history and a fast-evolving story—so we don’t just produce these items, we help our clients do what they do with these products. We help them create direct mail campaigns, store and assemble their products, distribute their materials through their networks, set up their promotional displays, and much more.
At Trico, we can help you take your imagined concept—the message, the content, the image—whatever you need to express, and develop it. What’s the best format for impact, for cost-efficiency, for reach or durability? What’s the best way to distribute your piece? What’s the best way to target your piece? From the germination of your idea to development to completion, we can help you make it come to life with whatever print technology best suites your priorities, budget, and specifications. We are architects of printed material.
