BLOOMFIELD HILLS, Mich.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- TriMas Corporation (NAS: TRS) - a diversified global manufacturer of engineered and applied products - announced today that it entered into an amendment of its accounts receivable facility with Wells Fargo Bank, N.A. The amended facility has been extended until October 11, 2017 and provides committed funding of up to $105 million.

This facility supersedes the Company's existing $90 million accounts receivables facility, while improving pricing and extending the maturity an additional two years.
