Congratulations to the SkillsUSA Mat-Su Valley Winners (Left to Right):

  • 1st John Brunner
  • 2nd Waylon Payne
  • 3rd Maxx Wanser

David Ratner, Manager of Central Welding Supply’s Wasilla location, is invested in supporting local welding students. David is a central point of professional welding expertise and knowledge that ties education to real life application.

David is the central coordinator for the donation of prizes for winning participants. On-going, David is the entre in Alaska to Central Welding’s team of experts, with the answers to questions you never thought to ask in class. It’s the best service we can offer to any welder, regardless of age. It’s what makes us different than any big-box store.

We congratulate ALL the participants who chose early to be leaders in the future. You already know something more about welding to share down the line. If you’ve learned about Mig settings, or that there’s a liner you might need to change in your Mig gun, you likely hold knowledge to share something with a home-hobbyist next door.

At Central Welding Supply we know the vast opportunity. The industry requires more than those who dare to work so close to the arc. The knowledge of welding translates to a broad range of industries from trade, sales, to research and development of new welding technologies. You must have seen that to choose it so early!

Congratulations! We see the future in all of you… all winners, one step ahead in the game! Thank you to all the welding instructors who choose to apply their knowledge to help the next generation of welders!
