Lou Tristao worked for Tri-Ex way back (50-60's?) in Tulare, CA.  They  
parted ways and Tri-Ex moved to Visalia and Tristao started his own tower  company. 
 He sold out to Palmer Industries in the early 80's and they never  really 
got going with the towers and Lou started another tower company.  He  had 
several names, Tower Master, Tristao-Pratt, and then just Tristao.  US  Tower took 
them over in the mid 80's and made many, many improvements.
Tri-Ex was split up and the crankup up business eventually sold to Wil-Burt  
in Ohio, who got out of the Amateur tower business.  Karl Tashjian, who was  
the engineer at Tri-Ex, started making towers based on Tri-Ex but somewhat  
improved, and on a much smaller scale.
