125 and Counting

Lincoln Electric celebrates landmark birthday

Lincoln Electric celebrated its official 125th birthday December 5.

While there are other centurions in our industry (Ideal Electric, which we mentioned last week, was founded 1903, for one) Lincoln has long been noted for its training-to-professional pipeline, among other things. Over time, Lincoln has morphed into primarily a family of welding and fabrication experts, as mentioned in thanking its sphere of influence:

“As Lincoln Electric celebrates our official 125th birthday today, we want to thank all of the great members of #WeldRedNation,” the company said in a Twitter post. “Together, we’ll continue to build a better world for another 125 years (and beyond)! #WeldRed”

Lincoln also produces automation equipment, wiring material, and large format additive manufacturing items. It speaks to the possibility of any company out there to mature over a long and successful period….if the company as a whole is willing to embrace change and emphasize versatility. Lincoln, which began as a standard electric company and training institute, now features things like automation and 3D printing at the forefront of its operations.

Congratulations to Lincoln Electric from all of us at Electrical Apparatus, and may you have many more!
