Trimpro has become an industry standard for leaf trimmers worldwide. Indeed, when one thinks of trimmers the name that immediately comes to mind is Trimpro. But how did this all happen?
The company was founded by Pierre Mercier whose experience as a machinist at a company which made turbine engines inspired him to create the first Trimpro Original. After a couple of unsuccessful experiments he came up with the idea of creating a vacuum effect, like a turbine, under a grate so the leaves would be gently pulled through the slots where a spinning blade just below the surface of the grate would cut the leaves off leaving the flower on the surface.
The focus was to design a machine which required less manipulation by the operator. A circular hermetic structure was added on top of the grate creating a whirlwind effect. Adding a stronger motor and a second set of the famous Trimpro blades created enough wind for the plants to move on the surface of the grate while the leaves were pulled through the slots and trimmed, the same concept as the original Trimpro. In 2006 this novel machine called the Automatik was introduced with great market acceptance.
In 2009 the Gasoline model was added to the line. Made for growers who prefer to work outdoors, the machine deploys a 1.3 hp Honda gas motor with the Automatik technology.
In their continuing efforts to meet the requests of their customers, the Trimpro team introduced a new machine in 2010, the Rotor. The design deviates from the traditional Trimpro technology but encompasses the same pride and engineering. The plants are gently rotated over the grate by leather fingers and trimmed by the razor sharp Trimpro blade system.
When introduced they responded to a real market need as apart from scissors there were really no other products available to growers. By constantly improving upon the original model through innovation, they succeeded in building an excellent reputation.
Trimpro has grown from a concept to an established company employing more than 20 people in their shop and offices. Proudly made in Canada.
