Tricolast has been in business since 1948

  • Tricolast NV has been founded in 1948 and was a well known specialised in made to measure compression stockings.
  • In the 60ies, the Tricolast company started working with a new yarn - Thermolactyl - for the company Damart.
  • At the beginning of the 80ies, miss Thérèse Van Den Heede-Hoste, commenced her activities at the family company and took on the challenge to create custom made garments for the post burn treatment.
  • After the Swittel fire in Antwerp in 1994 where many people needed treatment on large surfaces, Thérèse Van Den Heede-Hoste took on another challenge: the silicone challenge. Soon she was able to create RE-USABLE silicone garments to treat the large surfaces. A tremendous challenge in which she succeeded with her team of experts.
  • Re-usable because of the high cost of the raw materials. From here onwards, the Tricolast silicone was the first re-usable silicone sheet available on the market.
  • Today, Tricolast is still a family owned company that has a valuable expertise in custom made knitting and silicone coating applications. This expertise is expressed in the 3TK-technology.
  • Due to the 3TK-technology, Tricolast NV is able to create unique, stand alone concepts that offer long term solutions with the aim at top quality, high re-usability and therefore high cost-efficiency and optimal results with the combination of different expertises we have inhouse available.
  • Early 2011 - Tricolast created several division that are the responsible for specific core business areas.
  • We are located in the centre of Deinze, near Ghent, where also our manufacturing division is located.
  • For any further questions regarding the company, please contact us.
