About International Technologies

International Technologies: The Promise

International Technologies is like no other company you will ever encounter. We promise.

The reason for this is simple. We founded the organization by reverse-engineering it.

With a team of management, service and support, with over 100 years combined experience in the metal fabricating industry, we did something very few others ever have. We built the company with our first focus on you, our customer. By dedicating ourselves to your needs, we then worked backwards and built a dealer organization aligned with our philosophy, structured our sales, service and support around your business and your customers, and then researched and brought in the highest quality, and widest line of metal fabricating product perfectly suited to the most profitable, quality-based operation you can envision. And, in doing so, will allow you to focus on your customer without worrying about who’s got your back. Simply put, International Technologies is the first truly customer-driven metal fabricating company in the business.

Put us to the test, you will literally feel the difference.

Continuous Uptime In Lean Manufacturing. That’s IT!

International Technologies: The Products Behind The Promise

One of the most important aspects of our promise to focus on you, is to bring you the finest, broadest and most productive line of fabricating equipment in the world.

The “MY SPOT” By KOYO GIKEN: The Coolest Spot Welds You’ll NEVER See!

The revolutionary MY SPOT resistance welding system exemplifies Japan's most envied manufacturing qualities, innovative creativity. Designed for semi-skilled operators, the MY SPOT features a flat copper table as the second electrode, allowing the operator to place the part, not clamp it. Using the incredibly clever moveable welding gun arms, the operator simply moves the gun to the weld position and pulls the trigger. And, in 50% less time, you have a cool to the touch, virtually invisible spot weld that reduces downstream finishing, saving time, cost and most importantly, boosting quality through the roof! With 1000 machines installed worldwide, MY SPOT represents a huge technological breakthrough now available to you.
