About Delta Stud Weld
Joseph J. Walla graduated with an Economics Degree from Duquesne University, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania after serving in the US Navy during World War II.
His refractory career started at Harbison Walker, and continued with stints at HK Porter and Valle Minerals. He founded Delta Refractories in 1971. Delta became incorporated under the laws of Texas in 1974 with his son Richard assuming part ownership. Richard joined Delta full-time in 1981.
Since 1981 Delta Refractories, Inc. has manufactured ceramic fiber modules and precast refractory shapes for Forge, Primary Metals, & Chemical/Hydrocarbon Processing Industries. In 1990, Joseph and Richard started a new company, Delta Stud Weld, Inc. which grew to become a leading manufacturer of refractory anchors and stud weldable threaded studs.
Joseph Walla passed away in 1991 with Richard assuming the role of President and CEO of Delta Refractories, Inc. and Delta Stud Weld, Inc.
