Lincoln Electric, headquartered in Cleveland, Ohio, is the worldwide leader in welding and cutting solutions. At the Cleveland campus, they manufacture a broad range of welding and cutting machines, welding consumables and automation solutions for our customers. In addition, they have the longest operational welding school housed in our state-of-the-art Welding Technology and Training Center (WTTC) that was opened in 2017.
