Victor Technologies Celebrates Centenary

Press Release
Sunday, May 12, 2013

US-based Victor Technologies has announced the 100th anniversary of its Victor brand of cutting and gas control equipment.

The complete Victor brand line-up consists of:

Victor oxy-fuel and gas control equipment
Victor Thermal Dynamics, which encompasses manual and automated 
plasma cutting systems
VictorTurboTorch, which includes air-fuel products for brazing and soldering
VictorArcair, which represents manual and automated gouging systems

Victor’s founder, L.W. Stettner, suffered the loss of an eye in a welding accident and set out to design and build safer products for cutting and welding. Equipment was manufactured to exacting standards, and Stettner’s designs resulted in numerous industry firsts in welding. For example, Victor cutting and welding torches were assembled with screws, not soldered. The patented assembly method provided  a stronger connection between components in the event of overheating.

Since its beginnings Victor says they have been rooted in innovative product solutions – relating directly to the user and enhancing the tools of their craft. These practices have made their name name synonymous with dependability and quality.


Throughout the year, and culminating at FABTECH 2013 Expo in Chicago, Victor will be celebrating its 100 year anniversary through special publications, contests, and events.
