Our History

Over the past six decades, under the guidance of Peter, and his son, Gary, who serves as President, Trius has grown to become one of the largest municipal equipment suppliers in the Northeast, specializing in the sale and support of truck-chassis mounted equipment and other municipal road and facility-maintenance equipment.

  • In 1962, Trius began concentrating on the municipal and contractors’ markets.
  • Trius expanded into New Jersey in 1989
  • Headquarters moved from the Hicksville, NY, roots to its new and expanded facility in Suffolk County in 1993.
  • In 2010, Trius opened a brand-new production facility in Ft. Edward, NY.
