To my customers,
I basically started this business in the late 1900’s and the only product I had at the time was the 2” straps for pancake welding hoods. I sold my 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 my travels in the pipeline industry I became aware of a need that no one seemed to be interested in so my 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 my customers needed hard to find items, I tried my best to make that item available and so the business has grown to a supply a wide variety of products.
I officially became a business in 2006 and my main product was still the 2” strap which had evolved into about 30 different designs. 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.
My thanks to all of you for helping this business grow.
