ABOUT TRI

Founded in 1975 by J. Scott Thornton, TRI began as a small research and development company in Austin, Texas. Since then, TRI has grown to 10 subsidiaries employing over 120 scientists, engineers, technicians and support personnel around the world. TRI develops beneficial products and technologies from contracted projects for government and private sector clients. Once the products and technologies are developed, we evaluate and execute the appropriate business models to ensure success. TRI’s laboratories provide analytical testing and lab services for a wide variety of industries. Each TRI subsidiary has a unique focus often with overlapping and supporting interests, a structure that is beneficial for our clients, as they have access to TRI’s extensive experience and resources.
