Category Archives: Arc-Zone Pro Partnership™

The Arc-Zone.com Pro Partnership™ is a network of master fabricators, systems integrators, and industry professionals like you, committed to quality craftsmanship and moving the industry forward. By combining resources between Arc-Zone and a select group of metal fabricators, we can develop systems to ensure each of our goals can be achieved.

Much of our industry is focused on the technical aspects of a product, the specs that make a product work… But product descriptions are boring. It’s the people, using these tools to build amazing things, who are compelling, interesting, and informative. Our mission as a company has always been to elevate the role of the craftsmen and craftswomen — help us celebrate what you do on a daily basis by inspiring and motivating a new generation of fabricators (and the old ones too).

Weld-Shop Owner Makes Pivotal Investment

“Two pedals, torch in one hand weaving, feeding rod in the other and trying to not move my torch hand forward as I weld.. But the results are awesome!”  Wes Mishler, AKA, @wicked_welding, just purchased a WP-250 Welding Positioner for his new weld-shop. He’s shared excellent footage of how he put the dynamic WP-250 to the test.

“Well this is taking a little time to get used to.. Two pedals, torch in one hand weaving, feeding rod in the other and trying to not move my torch hand forward as I weld.. But the results are awesome!”

Arc-Zone Pro Partner Joanie Butler

Last but definitely not least of The Arc-Zone Pro Partnership, is our very own Joanie Butler! A little over three years ago, Joanie’s adventure with Arc-Zone began. She has proved to be a Jill of all trades who assists our Customer Care, Marketing, and Purchasing Teams; she creates metal art as a hobby, and even single-handedly designed and built a one-of-a-kind sign for Arc-Zone’s Ultimate Showroom.

She’s an inspiration to female fabricators everywhere and was recently hand-selected by the AWS to serve on a National Committee to create a Program for the Girl Scouts of America. Without further ado, Arc-Zone proudly presents to you, Joanie Butler!

Arc-Zone Pro Partner Jason Moser

Jason Moser, AKA @Jalumo_1973 on Instagram, was officially the second member to join the Arc-Zone Pro Partnership. Jason specializes in heavy fabrication and repair of road construction equipment and has been in the industry for roughly 20 years. Some might say he is the epitome of the professional welder… He works for the man, is as humble as they come, and takes much pride in what he does and loves. One thing you wouldn’t know about Jason from his Instagram pics is that he has a heavy, southern accent… It’s always a treat to get him on the phone and hear him talk ;)

Arc-Zone Pro Partner Wes Mishler

Before we get into the Q & A with Wes Mishler, AKA @wicked_welding on Instagram, we first want to tell you a little bit about how we came to know him…. We actually met Wes quite recently, sometime in early March, 2014, but since then, a whole lot has changed… At the time, we were in the process of officially launching the “Arc-Zone Pro Partnership”, which is a network of master fabricators and industry professionals who are committed to quality craftsmanship – but in its purest form, a way to celebrate the industry and our fellow tradesmen who are in it!

That being said, after lots of research and discussion, Wes was selected to be our very first Pro Partner, and boy were we lucky to have him! We didn’t know it at the time, but this professional partnership amongst a business and a fabricator, turned into a true friendship overtime.
