Today, MVC is a leading manufacturer of interior and exterior decorative trim products for the automotive industry, but our story started more than 60 years ago.

The company was founded as Thompson Metal Products in 1948. Over the years and through several ownership changes, we focused on designing and manufacturing plastic products for the automotive industry. In recent years, we have specialized in manufacturing automotive wheel claddings and covers as well as interior and exterior trim products that provide enhanced design flexibility and vehicle personalization options.

The company was acquired by MVC Holdings LLC in 2008, a holding company owned and operated by Linda and Michael Torakis. MVC is a certified Women Business Enterprise (WBE). Under the leadership of Linda and Michael Torakis, we've expanded our core competencies. These enhancements include expanding our vertical integration to include chrome plating of stainless steel, adding additional capabilities on the plastic- plating line to add various satin finishes along with micro-crack and micro-porous boundary layer technology. MVC has 29 patents which give us a unique advantage in a technically diverse and dynamic industry.
