Hobart Brothers Company

In 1917, Charles Clarence Hobart established what is now known as Hobart Brothers Company. In the beginning, the company was a manufacturer of generators, air compressors and metal office furniture, but, starting with the year 1925, Hobart entered the welding industry. From this point on, the Hobart Brothers Company was a an important name when it came to welding products and it continued to be a family-owned company until it was purchased in 1996 by Illinois Tool Works. Some of their welding products were known to have contained asbestos due to the fire-resistant characteristics of this natural occurring mineral. During the period asbestos was included in the manufacturing process, the lives of welders all over the country were put in danger.
