About Us

Norberto Irungaray and his two sons Norbert Jr. and Gerard founded Triple I Press, LLC in August of 1999, but the family has been involved agriculture for years before. Norberto is an immigrant of the Basque country in Spain. He moved to the United States in December of 1967, where he later became a citizen. He was only 17 and came to the US on a work visa as a sheepherder. He was a sheepherder for years before he moved on to owning his own harobed, a hay boom, a hay squeeze and trucks for local hauling before he founded Triple I Press, LLC. None of this came easy; it was through hard work and sacrifice that his dream of owning a family business came true. In January of 1975 Norberto married Patricia who was born and raised in the agricultural business as well. Patty was the daughter of a local farmer who grew a lot of the same crops that Triple I does today.

Norberto and Patty have three children, Norbert Jr., Gerard and Emily Irungaray. All are currently working at Triple I, along with their parents. All three went away to college to obtain a degree before returning to work in the family business. Norbert went to Arizona Automotive Institute and graduated with a degree in Diesel Technician. Gerard graduated from California Polytechnic University, San Luis Obispo with a degree in Agriculture Business. Emily graduated from California State University, San Marcos with a degree in Human Development, and from National University with a Masters of Business Administration degree.
