Mark Andol has been fixing and inventing products since he was a kid. While Mark was a young man, his dad took a leap of faith and used a second mortgage to open Mark’s first welding shop. Decades later, General Welding & Fabricating, Inc. has multiple large locations servicing major industrial, commercial, and residential projects.

GWFab has a thriving team that also launched the beautiful and inspiring, Made in America Store. A brick & mortar store that started with 50 products and now has over 11,000! by 500 different 100% American Made suppliers.
