Home of Economy Super Strong With Forney Welding SuppliesTuesday, March 17, 2009 | Filed Under: News | Posted by Wade - CEO on 03/17 at 07:16 AM
Yesterday our factory representative from Forney Industries was in the Grand Forks store. They are our supplier for a good deal of our welding supplies. To make a long story short, Forney has almost 15,000 stores that they are in. Home of Economy had two stores in the top 100. Grand Forks was actually the 28th biggest store in the US and Canada going by product shipped into the store. Minot was number 75. Grand Forks has done a good job with the line for quite a while. Minot has been able to bring themselves up to that level in under two years. When you consider that our populations are fairly small in North Dakota I think this is an awesome achievement. Of course we didn't do it alone. Forney is a great product line. We get great support from Monty and the rest of them at the company.
