Tregaskiss Celebrates 50th Anniversary

POSTED 06/07/2017

WINDSOR, Ontario - 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.

"We're excited about this milestone and thankful to the people who have made our company what it is today" says Diana Schneider, vice president/general manager, Tregaskiss. "From our dedicated employees who work hard to develop the best possible products to our customers and channel partners who continue to support us, everyone is critical to our success - we value these relationships."

Tregaskiss was family owned and operated until it was purchased by Illinois Tool Works (ITW) in 2007.
