Tregaskiss Posted 05/15/2007
Windsor, Ontario, Canada - Tregaskiss Welding Products is celebrating 40 years of manufacturing premium MIG welding products. Founded in 1967 by toolmaker William Tregaskiss, Tregaskiss introduced the Auto 350 MIG torch to meet the harsh demands of the automotive plants. Designed in cooperation with Ford Motor Company, its reputation as a durable MIG torch solidified its self as the standard in the auto industry.
In the years to follow Tregaskiss continued to grow and place emphasis on R&D and pioneering robotics. Commitment to R&D leadership and innovation led to the launch of our TOUGH GUN® line of semi-automatic and robotic torches and our patented TOUGH LOCK® Contact Tip System.
Over the past 40 years Tregaskiss has developed a number of industry first features such as our reversible cable, spring strain relief and Quick Change Robotic component. Recent product innovations include our TOUGH GUN I.C.E.® Robotic Torch, SURESTARTTM Contact Tips and QUICK LOAD® Liner.
In 2005, and again in 2006, Tregaskiss was a winner of Canada's 50 Best Managed Companies program. Also in 2006, in an effort to strengthen our global reach, Tregaskiss embarked on a joint venture with Browne Distribution International creating Tregaskiss International.
Tregaskiss has achieved tremendous success - and the future is even brighter. With the commitment and determination of our employees leading the way, we will continue to grow and respond to the needs of an ever-changing global market to remain our customers' number one choice.
