CeeKay Supply & AWS St. Louis Show

Apr. 14, 2015

CeeKay Supply has been one of the strongest, most respected Independent Welding and Gas Distributors in the mid-west which was founded in 1948. They hosted a two day event 25-26 March which consisted of the first day being The Contractors Show and the second day was the AWS St Louis Chapter Welding Show. Both of these events were held in the Welding Educational Training Center of CeeKay’s headquarters in Central St Louis. Their facility is perfect for these events because it is well over 10,000 square feet and within their facility they have permanent training areas designated for Bug-O Systems, Lincoln Electric, Miller, Esab and Thermadyne. Additionally these two events attract another 16 welding related vendors that had product displays and product specialist on hand to discuss client’s specific needs.



The Contractor Day was only for end-user clients to learn about what’s new and see firsthand many vendors in one location. The event lasted the entire day so companies could send their people in shifts and not disrupt their normal work day.  





The St. Louis AWS Show was the following day and this event went from 3:30pm to 8:30pm and was very heavily attended by Distributors and Industrial supply companies, as well as school, teachers, instructors and area AWS members and staff. At this event there were nearly 300 persons and the time was very well spent with no “free time.” Bug-O Systems gave away three Student Annual Memberships to AWS for three students of local trade schools. It was our way of trying to promote Welding and AWS to the young people of today! Lonnie Nations - Regional Manager for Bug-O Systems and Norm Sted – Bug-O’s Director of Sales for North America were on hand showing the Hob-O, KBUG-1200 and 3000 as well as the famous MDS with all its options. 
This is an annual event and we look forward to supporting CeeKay Supply again.
