Save Phace Prizes at Air Products Skillweld 2013

by Rapid Welding 4. July 2013 14:02

At Skillweld this year - the UK's prestigious and highly contended competition to find Britain's most talented trainee welder - the gifted winners of the seven semi-final events held across the country were handed specially designed Save Phace helmets with the Air Products logo (Air Products being the prime sponsor for Skillweld).

Exciting stuff, eh?

It all came about when Colin Kennedy, Marketing Associate for Air Products UK and Ireland, visited Rapid HQ in Portsmouth (Rapid is very proud to be an agent for Air Products offering a full range of industrial gases). Browsing our extensive website, he hit upon the great range of Save Phace Helmets and wanted to see more. Two months later he asked for a quote and made a purchase, with the fantastic idea of using them at Skillweld for the semi-final prizes.

Needless to say, when we sent the photos of the end result to the lovely Paul at Save Phace, he was really chuffed and understandably so.

It's a great product, and now part of a great association.

 

 We love this picture of 'wonder welder', Claire Murphy from Ardrossan, clutching her Save Phave helmet with Air Products logo.
