Greats news! We received notification from New York State that indoor arts and education categorized businesses are FINALLY able to re-open to the general public! Arc + Flame is evaluating the fine details and will act accordingly. Stay tuned for more announcements during the week!
Earlier this month, Arc + Flame postponed all classes through 2020. We will evaluate the new mandates and provide details on re-opening soon. Our center is open for retail and walk-in customers on Monday 9am-5pm, Wednesday 10AM-6PM, and Friday 9am-5pm.
We are actively interviewing candidates interested in our Welding & Fabrication Program set to begin February 2021. This program is directly partnered through Monroe Community College. Contact us today for details on the admissions process!
Our Fall 2020 Welding & Fabrication Industry Certificate Program through Monroe Community College is currently able to run because of direct partnership with higher education [based on NYS Phase 4 COVID guidelines]. The same goes for our collegiate welding classes for engineering students through Rochester Institute of Technology and machining and HVAC students through Monroe Community College.
- Theodore Krupnicki
The Patriarch of the Krupnicki family and Mahany Welding Supply passed away on Sunday, June 2nd of natural causes.
Ted was born and raised on a farm in Wyoming County, NY. He served his country in World War II as a member of the US Army, stationed in the Philippines. Upon returning from the war, he moved to Rochester and took a job with Mahany Welding Supply. In 1959 he purchased the company.
For 37 years Ted was the owner and President of Mahany Welding Supply and worked there a total of 65 years. He loved the welding industry, particularly new technology. He was well known and revered for his problem solving skills, relishing opportunities to help make his customers more profitable.
His warm nature, generosity, and ability to tell a joke endeared him to all who knew him. Years after his retirement, customers continued to ask about him and comment on how much he was liked. His business philosophy of “we don’t have customers, we have friends who buy from us” is embedded in the culture of Mahany Welding Supply and a key component of the company’s continued success.
