What are the chances of two people from the same company winning the 2005 American Welding Society's Professional Welders Competition? Two welders from Manitowoc Crane Group did just that. Scott Braun and Troy Yeager won first and second place, respectively, in the competition. A total of 133 welders from various U.S. industries took part in the event held during the FABTECH International & AWS Welding Show in Chicago.
Jim Hoffman, Manitowoc's welding engineer, said the results of the contest were a fitting tribute to the excellent work done at the Manitowoc weld school.
