About Triad

The right team and the right solution every time
Excellence from the start

The Newtron Group is based in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and owned by Newton B. Thomas. The company was founded by Thomas in 1973 as Newtron, a union industrial instrumentation contractor, to perform local and national projects but would quickly add electrical installation to its array of services. In 1977, Executive Aviation, a fixed-based operator (FBO) at Baton Rouge Metropolitan Airport, was acquired to house company aircraft and to provide hanger space and fueling services to the public.

In 1982, Triad Electric & Controls was founded in Baton Rouge, Louisiana to pursue industrial electrical and instrumentation merit shop work locally and nationally. In addition, Newtron would continue to operate as a union-only contractor and expand by opening its Nederland, Texas office. Nederland, Texas would become the operational headquarters for Newtron. The Newtron Group was founded during this time as the parent company for Newtron, Triad Electrical & Controls and Executive Aviation.

The 1990’s brought continued growth for The Newtron Group with development of new companies to meet the needs of clients. In 1994, Triad Control Systems, based in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, was founded to provide design, fabrication and integration services for industrial junction boxes, panels, cabinets, buildings and analytical systems. Also, in 1994, Newtron Mechanical was founded in Nederland, Texas to provide mechanical installation services for select clients in and around Beaumont, Texas. In 1997, Newtron Heat Trace was founded in Nederland, Texas to provide heat trace design, equipment fabrication and installation locally and nationally. Also, in 1997, Com-Net Services was founded in Baton Rouge, Louisiana to provide data network and fiber optic installation services locally and nationally and Triad Electric & Controls expanded by opening an office in Lake Charles, Louisiana.

The Newtron Group entered the new century with the addition of local offices and expanded service offerings. Triad Electric & Controls further expanded by opening an office in Deer Park, Texas in 2005 and Newtron expanded in 2005 by opening an office in Martinez, California. Finally, in 2011, Newtron Electrical Services was founded to provide residential, commercial and light industrial installation and maintenance services.

In 2013, Triad Control Systems expanded its services by adding field analytical, automation and design services. In 2018, Com-Net Services merged with Triad Electrical & Controls to provide expanded services throughout the company.
