April is marked as the National Welding Month to raise awareness about the shortage of trade skills in the welding industry, and its career paths, and to acknowledge all the ways that welding holds the world together.

Beyond the feature stairs, decorative railings, and ornamental metals they help manufacture, Synergi’s welders play a key role in the safety of our products and structures. Synergi would like to recognize National Welding Month with an interview from one of our welders, Jerome Ransome!
