Durum Inc. was established in New Mexico in 1992. In 2000 it was incorporated in Texas under the name Durmat Inc., dba Durum USA. Durum's initial purpose was to supply flux cored wire and electrodes for welding in industries where extreme wear-resistance is a requirement.

While there are many more products that Durum offers, the flux-cored wire and electrodes remain at the core of the company. Durum has grown yearly and continues to show sustainability and growth with introductions of new products, welding applications.
