  • CHATTANOOGA, TN. April 28, 2022 – T. J. Snow Company of Chattanooga, Tennessee, was recently chosen to receive a 2022 Safety Award of Honor from the Fabricators & Manufacturers Association, International (FMA) and was selected as the Rusty Demeules Award Recipient, the highest level of honor in the FMA Safety Awards program. Open to all FMA company members, the FMA/CNA Annual Safety Awards recognize metal fabrication companies that adhere to excellence in safety. The awards are sponsored by CNA, the endorsed business insurance carrier for FMA

    “I congratulate T. J. Snow on winning a Safety Award of Honor and the Rusty Demeules Safety Award of Excellence,” said Edward Youdell, president and CEO of FMA. “Safety is clearly a priority for the company. They set a good example for others in the industry. FMA and CNA are proud to recognize all our safety award winners.”

    To be eligible to receive recognition, companies were required to submit OSHA Form 300A, Summary of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses, for the period Jan. 1, 2021, through Dec. 31, 2021. Firms of all sizes were eligible. Winners were selected based on North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) code categories and BLS injury and illness incidence rates. The Safety Award of Honor is given to companies having a perfect safety record of no recordable injuries or illnesses for the reporting period.

    The Rusty Demeules Award for Safety Excellence is presented annually by FMA, created by FMA’s Safety Council to further recognize a company with a demonstrated safety culture. The award is named in honor of Rusty Demeules, an outstanding volunteer contributor who made significant contributions to FMA while serving as the President of its Safety Committee from its inception in 1989 until 1996.

    About T. J. Snow Company

    T. J. Snow’s reputation has been built by helping customers succeed with the resistance welding process since 1963. The company offers new and used welders, supplies, training, and service. Visit www.tjsnow.com for more information.

  • CHATTANOOGA, TN. ---- T. J. Snow Company of Chattanooga, Tennessee is the largest stocking distributor of TECNA portable and stationary resistance spot welders in the U. S.

    Made in Italy, the value-priced TECNA product line includes a complete range of machines for spot and projection welding.

    The small models of TECNA spot welders have become increasingly popular in recent years because Miller Electric obsoleted its line of 10 and 20 KVA machines that were popular with sheet metal shops.

    TECNA portable gun-style spot welders are unique because the programmable welder control is built into the gun’s handle.

    Other brands of portable spot welders require a separate control, which must be remote-mounted on a wall or pedestal.

    To facilitate a full range of motion, TECNA portable spot welding guns can be matched to a properly-sized TECNA spring balancer.

    TECNA stationary spot welders include rocker arm and vertical press-type machines of various KVA ratings.

    One of the most popular TECNA welders is the Model 6128N, a versatile 160 KVA press-type combination projection and spot welder with a Mid Frequency Direct Current (MFDC) power supply.

    The welder is equipped with a sophisticated Model TE-700 control, which includes Constant Current and a Dynamic Mode which allows the weld schedule to adjust on the fly.

    To make the selection of the ideal TECNA welder easy, T. J. Snow Company invites customers to send samples for welding in its lab.

  • Tom Snow, Chairman of T. J. Snow Company, Chattanooga, Tennessee, was recognized with the Elihu Thomson Resistance Welding Award at the recent Fabtech metalworking trade show in Chicago. 

    The award was presented by the Resistance Welding Manufacturing Alliance (RWMA), a standing committee of the American Welding Society (AWS).

    It recognizes individuals who have made outstanding contributions to the technology and application of the resistance welding process, which was invented in the late 1800s by Elihu Thomson, an associate of Thomas Edison.

    Since joining the business founded by his father, who was a Thomson award winner in 2003, Snow has been active in sales and marketing roles in the resistance welding industry for over 48 years. 

    The award recognized the numerous technical articles Snow has contributed over the years to the AWS Welding Journal and several other publications focused on metalworking.

    Publication of the articles led to opportunities for T. J. Snow Company to offer seminars on the resistance welding process, which is widely used in manufacturing automobiles, appliances, aircraft and fabricated wire products.
