VICTOR GAS EQUIPMENT was founded in 1913 by L.W. Stettner. Stettner, a welder by trade, suffered the loss of an eye from a welding accident and subsequently set out to design and build better, safer welding products.

His designs for welding and cutting torches and regulators were quickly accepted and the original San Francisco-based Victor Oxy-Acetylene Welding Equipment Company grew rapidly. Stettner's "safety oriented" designs resulted in numerous patents and firsts including spiral mixers, gooseneck nozzles, and safety regulators.
In time, the company name was shortened to Victor Equipment Company. Victor's product line and business volume grew steadily and expanded capacity was needed. The original San Francisco manufacturing operations were relocated to new headquarters in Denton, TX in the mid 1960's.  Today, Victor Gas Equipment is the world leader in gas equipment, providing superior quality, reliable products, safety, and performance resulting in numerous product innovations including patented built-in flashback arrestors and check valves for torches.
Victor also includes oxy-fuel cutting and welding equipment such as oxy-acetylene and oxy-fuel welding and cutting equipment, torch handles, cutting attachments, straight cutting torches, regulators, cutting tips, welding nozzles, cutting and welding outfits.
Victor products cover the full range of needs from general industrial to heavy duty mill and foundry requirements. Victor's gas apparatus line is the most complete selection offered from any manufacturer and the only one offering users the (patented) safety benefit of built-in flashback arrestors and reverse flow check valves. 
Why not try the NEW Victor Regulator with SLAM technology?
The knob on the regulator is shock absorbing and has a 3 stage crumple zone to prevent the gas bottle flying off on impact in the event of a cylinder fall. Perfect for places that need safety conscious equipment; shipyards, biochemical etc.

In 1936, the Townsend Welding Equipment Company was born in the basement of Ray Townsend's Wichita, Kansas home. Townsend was driven by the idea that improved ground connections would result in improved quality welds. That same year, Ray Townsend began selling his now-famous "Red-head" ground clamp. In 1937, the company name was shortened to "Tweco" and a national advertising campaign was launched. In 1938, Ray Townsend added electrode holders to his product line and he moved the company out of his basement to a store front. Within a year, continued growth led the Townsends to purchase land and build the first Tweco factory, which was occupied in 1940. World War II created a huge demand for arc welding for armament, tanks and ships, and for Tweco products.
The product line was expanded to include new metal arc holders and a new line of carbon arc holders. Cable connectors with a "quick-connect" type feature were introduced. During the 1940's, Tweco adopted the slogan "If it goes on the end of a welding cable, Tweco makes it." Business continued to boom, and in 1950, Tweco moved into a new plant. During the early 1960's, Tweco began to study the GMAW market in an effort to produce a significantly better MIG gun. Finally, in 1968, Tweco developed the first MIG gun that it felt matched the quality of the Tweco product line. The new gun was introduced to the world at the 1969 AWS Welding Show.
Spurred by the success of the new gun and the introduction of the highly popular, patented coaxial Cablehoz®, Tweco emerged as an industry leader. Growth once again necessitated a move, this time to the company's current Wichita, KS manufacturing facility.
The company was then acquired by Thermadyne in 1987. Tweco has now produced more than two million MIG guns and is the industry leader in the production of MIG guns and cable, manual arc welding electrode holders, and accessories. 
The Tweco line includes an extensive array of products from the basic manual welding tools and accessories to MIG guns, consumables, and a complete selection of products for precision robotic welding applications.
