Our Story

IAG was born out of the Triten corporation. The Triten Corporation was founded in 1946 by Roman F. Arnoldy as a general fabrication, welding, and machine shop. Triten went on to pioneer processes for bulk welding proprietary alloys for wear-resistance applications for a number of industries worldwide.

Innovative Roots

Filing for his first patent at 29 years old, Roman Arnoldy continued innovating at Triten, then known as the Texas Alloy Products Company. Triten went on to develop and operate under numerous patents and proprietary products and processes, including the T-200X weld-overlay product, which became the worldwide standard for hardfaced steel plate. Triten also developed an industry revolutionizing bulk-welding process and, in the 1980s, the TAPCO Slide Valve, which can still be found in FCC units around the world.

Triten Expansion

In 1992, at 80 years old, Roman Arnoldy founded Arnco Technology, a company which took principles from the hardfacing industry and applied the technology to the petroleum drilling industry. Arnco would become a pioneer in the casing-friendly hardbanding industry, and more than 25 years later, Arnco products are used by drillers around the world to protect drilling assets downhole.
