Trinity Engineering was founded in 1980 by Bruce Omholt. In 1964 he received his BSME while living in San Francisco. Omholt gained considerable design and manufacturing experience during the next sixteen years while working for Repco Engineering, Inc., Ford Motor Company, EF Hauserman Company, and the American Seating Company. Omholt wanted to bring together people with multiple skills—people who were not just cutters or welders, but who were capable of seeing projects as a whole. Thus, Trinity was started in Grand Rapids, Michigan, in 1980, and moved to Rohnert Park, California, in 1981.
Omholt was the President and CEO of Trinity Engineering until 1998. After retirement, he continued his passion for inventing by researching and developing specialized scuba diving equipment. Over the last eighteen years Trinity has continued to operate with the same dedication and spirit that Omholt began over 35 years ago.
