In 1994 Triangle Brass Manufacturing Co., Inc. acquired another well-known hardware company named Builders Brass Works. Along with Builders Brass Works came Builders Brass Works de Mexico (BBM), a wholly owned subsidiary in Tijuana, Mexico. This modern sand casting foundry is walking distance from the U.S./Mexican border and brought vertical integration and increased capacity to Trimco.
Capable of pouring brass, bronze and aluminum, BBM enables Trimco to quickly and efficiently manufacture standard and custom items under our own local and indiscriminate quality systems. Significant investment in our facilities and a highly skilled work force have resulted in a very efficient operation and superior casting quality.
BBM now has the ability to pour CuVerro antimicrobial copper. CuVerro is a class of copper-based alloys that continuously kills harmful bacteria 24 hours a day. These attractive, durable and easy to maintain surfaces represent the only class of EPA-registered solid surfaces materials that actively kill bacteria. We can manufacture many different standard and custom items out of CuVerro including pulls, levers, cabinet hardware, etc. – just about anything you could dream of for protection against harmful bacteria.
Serving a multitude of industries including architectural door hardware, industrial lighting & componentry, traffic controls, designer/architectural products & many others, Builders Brass Works de Mexico is a full service, high quality foundry ready to tackle any high volume or custom project.
