The American Welding Society (AWS) has declared April, “National Welding Month.” The purpose of National Welding Month is to recognize and appreciate the impact quality welding work has on so many aspects of our daily lives. From manufacturing facilities to automotive assembly plants to construction sites, skilled welding professionals are hard at work building the structures and products that build the nation’s economy. According to AWS, National Welding Month provides an opportunity to “spotlight the welding industry’s past, present and future through education, mentorship and recognition.”
Today it is especially important to recognize the welding industry due to the fact that welding is a skilled trade industry in dire need of new talent. According to AWS,
“the industry is predicting a shortage of over 200,000 skilled welding professionals by 2020. By spotlighting the opportunities available in our industry we can create a better future for welding and the professionals that choose welding as a career.”
Winston Manufacturing is proud to offer certified welding among our specialized manufacturing services. In recognition of National Welding Month, we are honoring our valued team of certified welders and celebrating their hard work and accomplishments.
