Tregaskiss Celebrates 50th Anniversary

WINDSOR, Ontario. June 5, 2017 — Tregaskiss announced the company is celebrating its 50th anniversary. Founded in 1967 by William Tregaskiss, a toolmaker from England, the company introduced its first semi-automatic MIG gun in 1972 to address the demanding welding needs of the automotive industry. Since then, the company has introduced the well-known TOUGH GUN® and TOUGH LOCK® brands, and today is known as an industry leader in the manufacturing of robotic MIG guns, peripherals and consumables
