Boss Manufacturing attended Midway Rental’s Annual Buyers Show in Marquette, MI on Friday, April 20th. Marquette is enjoying a recent boom in their construction industry including a new hospital and a major hotel renovation. Linda Black attended the show and discussed the differences between various styles of Boss cut resistant gloves. She was excited to share her knowledge and promote safety!
The NCK Tech High School & College GMAW Welding Invitational Competition was held in Beloit, KS on March 1st & 2nd, 2018. Students came from Nebraska, Missouri, Kansas, and Oklahoma to compete. This is the second year Boss has donated welding gloves for the competition.
The contest showcases each student’s ability to weld with the Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW) process in all positions according to a blueprint. Awards and prizes were given to the top 5 individual welders as well as the top teams. Prizes included gloves, plaques, and scholarships.
Boss was happy to support the Hastings, Nebraska location of Matheson Gas again this year by providing Welding Gloves to the contestants. As these fine, young students begin heading into the workforce, we hope we have been a positive influence in helping them not only wear the right personal protective equipment but to put safety first!
