Matthew’s contributions
“Matt is an incredibly hardworking, dedicated, and intelligent employee,” said Lisa Byall, portfolio manager of capital equipment. “His training as a welder gives him a real, hands-on understanding of our products and how they are used, which allows him to help with the development of products that will make a true impact for Lincoln Electric customers. He goes above and beyond the call of duty on a regular basis to develop solutions that will improve the functioning of our customers’ facilities and give them the best results for their needs. He has a real desire to constantly improve, and we are lucky to have him on staff.”

Why a career in manufacturing?
“The desire to obtain specific industry skills led me to pursue a comprehensive understanding of welding techniques. After gaining a hands-on understanding of welding, I decided to focus on the engineering and application of welding processes. I wanted to make a difference in manufacturing plants by helping implement practical solutions, alleviating common misconceptions, and transforming operations. My hands-on experience and engineering background, combined with the opportunity Lincoln Electric has given me to interact with the welding industry on a global level, has positioned me uniquely in accomplishing this goal.”

Annual Salary Survey

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.

There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
