The “Spring Jefferson” kicks off the season of three swap meets and car shows hosted by Madison Classics. It is followed by the Summer Elkhorn and Fall Jefferson Shows.

This will be the 39th Annual Spring Jefferson Event, to be held at the Jefferson County Fairgrounds covering 99 acres. The featured vehicle will be convertibles!

Thousands of car parts and car accessory vendors will be there—making it a great place to buy or sell those hard-to-find car necessities. Plus there will be 100s of cars on sale and 100s more on display. 20,000 car show spectators and over 3,100 car part vendors also make it the Midwest’s largest show of its kind.

Anyone looking for the story behind WELD Specialty Gas & Equipment’s explosive growth since current owners took over needs to look no further than the:

November/December Issue of Industrial Distribution Magazine.

Inside you can read how WELD has quadrupled in size since 2002. John Dunfee, President of the company which is Wisconsin’s largest independent welding supplies distributor, attributes much of that growth to the firm’s people and service capabilities being its best resources.

Of course, another contributing factor was management’s decision to get involved in the industrial gas supply business in 2003. Cylinder Tracking from Day 1 has been a big advantage for WELD over “the big guys” in the industry. More recently, Vendor Managed Inventory powered by AutoCrib has brought success along with the ability to compete with larger national organizations.

What’s the next chapter in WELD’s success story hold? E-Commerce coming soon.
