Arc-Zone is making its triumphant return to Fabtech Expo, the most prestigious metal working tradeshow in Chicago, IL® announces it will return as a vendor to the Fabtech Expo 20 years after the company debuted as the first online welding supplier in 1998. Arc-Zone Founder and CEO, Jim Watson promises a booth full of good people, great products, and big surprises. 

Arc-Zone and their Pro Partners will set-up shop among other top welding suppliers at booth B25117 in Hall B of McCormick Place. The team plans to pull out all the stops to impress spectators just as much as they did during their first Fabtech experience. 

Watson recalls, “Two years after the website launched, I was featured in the American Welding Magazine as an emerging eCommerce company and invited to the 1998 Fabtech show in Chicago. Our booth looked unlike anything there, and people were lined up to see it. But there was no Internet to show the website, so we ran it off of a CD. People were standing around my computer just clicking through each page. It was a pretty cool experience.” 

When Arc-Zone makes its return to Fabtech as the most trusted online welding supplier, it will present an array of high quality tools and accessories designed to make life easier for the everyday welder. Not only will attendees enjoy a hands-on experience with the products, they can enter to win cool prizes and meet-and-greet the Pro Partners, plus Jimmy McKnight, the voice of the Arc Junkies Podcast, is scheduled to host a show in the booth.
