The Lincoln Electric Co has opened a new regional distribution and training center in Chicago IL. Late in 2006, the first facility was opened in Atlanta GA.
This new facility combines sales, distribution, training, and demonstration of advanced arc welding products all under one roof. The 110,000-plus-square-foot Chicago center allows customers to demonstrate, learn, and select equipment with hands-on training and demonstration during the buying decision process. It also provides continuing education for existing customers, distributors, and the public.
Product demonstrations include various applications from large, industrial robotics and software monitoring equipment, to small user-friendly equipment for repair shops, farming, or hobbyists. Lincoln Electric also provides a variety of plasma cutters, consumables, fume extraction systems, and welding accessories.
The Chicago center is at 115 E Crossroads Parkway, Suite A, Bolingbrook IL 60440; phone number is 888-935-3880. The facility is open from 7 am to 5 pm Monday through Friday.
