TRInternational, Inc. #96 on PSBJ Washington State's 100 Largest Private Companies

July 3, 2013

TRInternational, Inc. (TRI) celebrates its first year on the Puget Sound Business Journal’s list of Washington State’s 100 Largest Private Companies, published June 28th 2013. The list is based on companies headquartered in Washington ranked by 2012 Revenues.

As a world-class chemical distributor TRI ranked #96 with revenues of more than $73 million. TRI was 1 of 8 companies headquartered in Seattle and 1 of 11 companies in Wholesale/Distribution. Amongst the top 100, TRI represents the “smallest” largest company with 25 employees nationwide and 30 employees company-wide. In an industry where global coverage is key, TRI counts six regional offices throughout the USA, a business development office in Alberta, Canada, a sourcing office in Shanghai, China, and global trading offices in Dubai, U.A.E. and Delhi, India.

President/CEO and Founder, Anthony Ridnell reflects back nearly 19 years when operation first commenced at his home in the Seattle neighborhood of Leschi with 3 employees. Imagine phone lines and computer cables connecting a spare bedroom and den; where each time an order was put together a brass horn would be feverishly blown out the deck overlooking Lake Washington. Ridnell says “We consider it an honor to be included in this list considering the entrepreneurial talent in the Puget Sound area. Being named to this list was not even a consideration when we started in 1994. We are humbled to be included.”

Executive Vice President and CFO, Jeff Wright includes, “TRI is honored to be included in the PSBJ’s list of Washington State’s Largest Private Companies, and we look forward being included in this select group in the future. TRI is committed to the Pacific NW, and we are proud to call Seattle our home!”

At TRI, our mission is to continue to create sustainable partnerships worldwide by providing innovative and competitive sourcing solutions. Our success is based on the ethics and ingenuity of our team; we create an environment that promotes growth for our employees, partners and community. TRI's employees take pride in their reputation and commitment to the company and the Chemical Industry.
