Stoody - The Global Leader In Hardfacing Welding Alloys

About StoodyStoody is the world's leading producer of wear resistant alloys for abrasion, impact, corrosion, high temperature, cavitation, galling and other metallic wear needs.Stoody iron, nickel and cobalt based hardfacing rods, electrodes, and wires provide critical wear protection for numerous applications.Typical user industries include construction, mining, railroads, mill and foundry, agriculture, oil and gas, power generation, pulp and paper and many others.For any wear resistance need call Stoody, The Hardfacing Specialists.
The basic concept of overlaying equipment subject to destructive wear with a coating of abrasion resistant alloys by the welding process was developed by the founders of the company, Winston F. and Shelly M. Stoody.
In 1924 Stoody's first cast welding rod, Stoodite, was introduced.It was to become an industry standard for more than 40 years.
In 1927 perhaps the company's single most significant milestone was reached with the production and marketing of Borium, the only tungsten-carbide material in regular manufacture at the time and one of the hardest materials ever developed.
During the ensuing years, Stoody continued to expand its product line with new alloys and new manufacturing methods.In 1946 Stoody developed the industry's first application of the submerged-arc process for overlaying and hardfacing equipment parts.During the 1950's, exceptionally long-wearing Stoody centrifugal castings gained wide acceptance.
In 1979 Stoody Company was acquired by Pacific Lumber Company (PALCO) and then in 1985 by Polaris to create a broader metallurgical company.The following year, it acquired the Deloro Stellite companies, and created Stoody Deloro Stellite, further strengthening its worldwide marketing and manufacturing capabilities.
In 1988 Stoody Deloro Stellite was acquired by Thermadyne and in 1991 the Stoody plant was moved from California to a new 180, 000 sq. ft. plant in Bowling Green, KY.
Today Stoody is a division of Thermadyne Industries, the world's largest supplier of welding, cutting, safety, and wear resistance products.Thermadyne is headquartered in St. Louis, MO.
