The low cost of Asian products is an attraction, but in the end, distributors appreciate the reliability and safety options that a manufacturer such as Uniweld can bring to the market.

Fabtech Mexico 2017 was held in Monterrey Mexico at the Cintermex exhibition center over a 3 day period: 2-5 May. Fabtech Mexico is the primary gathering place for leading metal manufacturers in Mexico. Over 575 exhibitors displayed their products presenting their company’s most recent innovations in the metal forming, fabricating, welding and finishing industries.
Richard Apodaca, Director-International and Mario Portillo, International Sales Excecutive, welcomed visitors to the Uniweld booth. This year’s edition attracted several distributors, contractors and manufacturers to Uniweld in search of gas apparatus solutions to their requirements. With the influx of private labeled products coming in to Mexico from Asia, distributors were attracted to Uniweld’s commitment to manufacturing its products in the USA. Richard Apodaca, Director-International at Uniweld expressed: “The low cost of Asian products is an attraction, but in the end, distributors appreciate the reliability and safety options that a manufacturer such as Uniweld can bring to the market.”
