About Us



TriMike Creations began in 2004 as a small, niche engineering firm drawing expertise from a number of long-existing companies.  TMC developed into a “hub” organization bringing together the skills and full-range capabilities of a network of vendors, manufacturers and solution providers in the field of industrial machinery, particularly automated machinery.  But TMC has also demonstrated a great deal of ability and creativity in smaller areas as well.  See our Portfolio for examples of our capabilities. TMC’s business strategy is to position ourselves as a company who can bring together a wide variety of support businesses.  In this fashion, even the largest of projects have the necessary resources available for success.  We want our customers to think of us first when they need apiece of machinery built or a system designed, knowing that we will provide a guaranteed product at an affordable price in the time needed just as they envisioned it. TMC’s administrative strategy is to build a company where people want to come to work every day.  Our employees know that we care about them; after all, they are the company.  There is no “top-down” paradigm at work here.  And no need for a “bottom-up” protocol.  Everyone who works at TMC knows that not only is their input welcome, but it is required.  We know that the best working environment is one in which differing ideas and opinions are valued.  We know that good leadership is one that is empowering, and that the best leader is one who listens and serves.  We work hard at developing this environment, and our customers are the beneficiaries of this approach to business.
