Trimlite was founded in 1982 in Vancouver, British Columbia by Larry Elliott, Douglas Schick, and David Nicol. It began as a small manufacturer of decorative glass for steel door fabricators and wood door manufacturers. Trimlite opened its first stile and rail door facility in 1993 and established a presence in 1995 in Vietnam to expand its decorative glass manufacturing capabilities.
