In 2010, three senior executives, each with unique backgrounds and perspectives, entered into a conversation about marketplace needs across borders. Working together, they recognized that their varied networks and resources, as well as their diverse education and experience, formed an ideal foundation for thinking beyond traditional patterns and established paths. Trayas Inc., meaning ‘three’ in Sanskrit was formed.
Three is a symbol of body, mind and spirit. Three minds, three backgrounds, three networks.
Trayas Inc. is in the business of facilitating supply and demand requests across borders. Trayas connects ‘under-marketed’ manufacturers in one country with high-end distributors and wholesalers in another, thereby facilitating increased opportunity.
