Our Team

ARIX® Technologies is built by industry veterans working with technical experts.

Our Story

ARIX Technologies is fueled by a profound commitment to addressing critical pipe corrosion challenges encountered by industries worldwide. Established in 2017, the company has, from day one, prioritized combining firsthand experiences by those who have lived the problem with creative innovations by those able to imagine the solution. ARIX was founded by a former mechanical integrity engineer at an industry-leading major’s downstream refinery, and the solution was born in collaboration with immensely talented Yale educated robotics engineers.
This partnership set a foundation upon which ARIX was built, a groundwork and deeply rooted belief that innovation and technological advancements can be used to overcome historical inspection challenges. Our mission is to help our friends and colleagues still in the industry enhance workplace safety and efficiency through that innovation. Every ARIX teammate brings either industry experience working alongside or within our customers, or leading-edge technical expertise (or both), with the shared vision and passion of improving safety and efficiency for our customers.
Since inception, ARIX has steadfastly pursued a future of safe, cost-effective, reliable inspection methods. Close collaboration between knowledgeable customer expertise and feedback with industry-leading technology development is in our DNA, and we believe those partnerships are essential to delivering transformative solutions and optimal performance. ARIX’s close relationship with petrochemical asset owners and non-destructive testing (NDT) suppliers has enabled the development of our innovative robotic inspection services and corrosion analytics. ARIX is truly built by the industry, for the industry.
