Trinidad Match Ltd, a subsidiary of the ANSA McAL Group of Companies, is the manufacturer of Three Plumes, Swinger and Masters Army/Navy safety matches. The 127 year old company has established markets, not only in Trinidad and Tobago but throughout the Caricom region, as well as in South and Central America. The company recently made its first step into the Bahamian market. Trinidad Match Ltd is set to do business with local Bahamian wholesaler and retailer Milo B. Butler & Sons. Milo B. Butler & Sons has been in operation since 1928 and is a distributor for products such as grocery items, hardware supplies, pet care products and liquor.

In September 2014, Trinidad Match Ltd. sold its first twenty foot container of Swinger matches to the company and looks forward to expanding its foothold in the Bahamas market. This first shipment of matches holds a market value of TT$200,000.

Back home, Trinidad Match Ltd. is getting ready to launch a new product from its Three Plumes brand to the local market. The new Three Plumes product will hit shelves in October 2014.
