Trinity began providing industrial products and services to customers more than 85 years ago. We started as a small butane-tank manufacturer and evolved over time into a premier diversified industrial company with market-leading businesses serving the energy, chemical, agriculture, transportation, and construction sectors. We have a long history of creating value for our shareholders by providing quality products and services to our customers.
On Nov. 1, 2018, Trinity separated into two stand-alone public companies through a tax-free spin-off to Trinity shareholders. Trinity Industries, Inc. comprises our rail-related businesses, our highway products business, and our logistics business; Arcosa, Inc. focuses on infrastructure-related products.

Our vision for our highway products business is to be a premier provider of roadway and roadside products in the United States.
