Located on the company’s headquarters campus in Cleveland, the new 130,000-square-foot facility represents a $30 million investment in training for a new generation of welding leaders and educators. The center is a state-of-the art educational facility that features 166 welding and cutting booths, a virtual reality training lab with 10 VRTEX virtual reality welding simulators, as well as extensive seminar and welding school classroom space, and a 100-seat auditorium to advance technical skills. The center will also become an American Welding Society accredited testing facility later this year.
