To our customers,
My mother started this business in the late 1990’s and the only product that she had at the time was the 2” straps for pancake welding hoods. She sold the straps for the first time off the back of a welding truck at 798 Steward School when they had their event at the fairgrounds in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
During her travels in the pipeline industry she became aware of a need that no one seemed to be interested in so her goal was to bring a service, so vitally needed, to pipeline welders. These welders needed fast, efficient service and they are the ones that have built this business. When her customers needed hard to find items, she tried her best to make that item available and so the business has grown to a supply a wide variety of products.
It officially became a business in 2006 and her main product was still the 2” strap which had evolved into about 49 different designs included personalized embroidery straps. Items available now range from the pancake hood straps to pancake hoods, auto lenses, gloves, FR clothing, caps and some leather items which are made by P/L Welder.
In 2016 my mother, Jean, became ill and couldn't run the business any longer. She turned it over to me and after many bumps and a huge learning curve we still strive to provide service to welders across the US.
Many thanks to all of you for helping this business grow.
