PRESS RELEASE: It’s not just about the prep

Tri Tool recognized with AWS 2014 Image of Welding Award 

Rancho Cordova, CA – October 20, 2014  Tri Tool has been recognized as a leading designer and manufacturer of quality portable machining products that prep the tube or pipe for welding for over 40 years. “For a company to design products around prepping the pipe for welding, it was imperative that we have an intimate knowledge of the process of welding as well”, said Dr. George J. Wernette, President and Chairman of the privately-held Tri Tool and AWS Member since 1980.
To this end, Tri Tool took a progressive role in welding research, and as early as 1991 became active corporate proponents of welding and welding technology. This research culminated in the development and launch of the patented AdaptARC® orbital multi-process mechanized welding system after years of intense R&D.

As the company became more active in national welding organizations and hired more seasoned welders, senior management within Tri Tool sponsored and supported employees taking leadership roles within their local sections.  Local commitment continued to grow as employees presented white papers, joined welding competitions, and supported local organizations with their community projects.  In 2008, in conjunction with the AWS Foundation, they started the Tri Tool Inc. – Sacramento Section Named Scholarship which continues to provide student scholarships each year.
Tri Tool is proud to be honored with the prestigious Image of Welding award in the small business category by both The American Welding Society (AWS) and The Welding Equipment Manufacturers Committee (WEMCO) and will continue to support and promote that image in the future. 

“They are involved with community development in education, training and humanitarian efforts. Their philanthropic efforts have provided many students in this area the ability to accomplish goals that would otherwise be unattainable. There are few individuals and companies in this industry that have not been touched in some way by their work, effort and passion to excel.” Says Ken Morris, Formerly Sacramento Valley Section 174 Chairman, Weld Supervisor, AWS CWI 10041951, AWS CWS 1210003S 

Tri Tool will be hosting welding demonstrations at Booth #C1304 at the AWS FABTECH show in November.
