Today, MVC is a leading manufacturer of interior and exterior decorative trim systems and products for the automotive and commercial truck industries, but our story started 70 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 expanded our customer base to include the commercial truck industry by specialized in manufacturing products that provide enhanced design flexibility and vehicle personalization options to our customers.

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).
