ESAB is the sole provider of welding equipment for season one of Metal Shop Masters, a new Netflix reality TV series premiering globally today (10th September).
The show features seven competitors who face off in elimination-style fabrication challenges. At the end of six challenges, the last fabricator standing will have earned the title of Metal Shop Master and win a $50,000 prize.
“Every episode gives these distinguished fabricators, welders and artists a worldwide stage to show what they can create from metal using ESAB equipment,” said Steve Molenda Sr., Director of Global MarCom and Marketing Strategies at ESAB.
“It’s an honour as well as a huge opportunity to promote the welding industry to new audiences, showcasing it as a career, hobby and means of artistic expression.”
Molenda said that equipment used for the show is the sort used by millions of welding professionals, contractors, metal artists, farmers, maintenance personnel, auto repair and motorsports shops and do-it-yourself enthusiasts.
Products include the Rebel EMP 205ic AC/DC all-process welder, the Thermal Dynamics® Cutmaster® 40 manual plasma cutter, a Victor® cutting outfit, the Sentinel™ A50 welding helmet and additional PPE.
