Tri Tool Inc. was established in 1972 to respond to challenges facing industries involved in preparing and welding pipe during activities such as building power plants in North America. Tri Tool first introduced advanced portable machine tool technology, in the form of pipe and tube cutting and squaring, to the nuclear construction industry, targeting a market niche the founders believed was underserved in the marketplace.
By the early-1980s, Tri Tool had developed specialized equipment for repairing steam generators, pressurized water reactors and various other pressure parts, as well as highly automated tooling for other nuclear related repair work. In 1984 and 1985, in an effort to expand and diversify the business, Tri Tool targeted refinery/petrochemical, fossil-fueled electric utilities, and pharmaceutical facilities effectively expanding the reach of Tri Tool’s engineered solutions and specialized capabilities.
In January 2001, Tri Tool established Tri Tool Power Services Inc. (TPS), a subsidiary of Tri Tool Inc. It is "Signatory to a Specialty Agreement with the United Association" and was organized specifically to allow Tri Tool Inc. to perform work on union sites and/or to use union labor from the local unions. Through a UA certified training program (Course 279, Level I), TPS instructors train union members on the operation of specialty pipe beveling tools commonly used in the industry. This combined effort links the world recognized reliability and quality craftsmanship of Tri Tool® equipment, with the expertise of the UA membership, to form a winning team.
Tri Tool Services℠ provides onsite machining support to our customers to respond quickly to outages, infrequent operations, or special construction and maintenance projects. Due to a growing number of requests from our customers to expand our onsite machining business, Tri Tool Power Services was created to include welding services as well as union contracting services.
In the spring of 2007, Tri Tool Inc. acquired a 128,000 square foot facility at 3041 Sunrise Boulevard in Rancho Cordova, California to serve as its corporate office and main manufacturing plant. The necessary improvements were completed in the Fall of 2007, and the Administration, Sales and Engineering Departments were able to move in. The relocation of the Production/Manufacturing part of the team was completed in January 2008.The steel-roofed concrete and brick building, originally built in 1988, contains over 105,000 square feet dedicated to manufacturing and production. The remainder of the building provides offices for engineering, production planning, research and development, administration, and sales. The 11.0 acres of land acquired with the building are zoned for heavy industrial and will provide room for the future expansion of our manufacturing activities.
