About L-TEC Steel Industry Products
ESAB does business in the steel and other heavy industries as L-TEC Steel Industry Products Division. This division was formed in July 1985 by the purchase of Union Carbide Corporation’s (UCC) welding, cutting and scarfing machine businesses including the associated distribution network, engineering and manufacturing facilities. Transferred to L-TEC were UCC’s business obligations, trademarks, licenses patents and staff. Thereby providing an ongoing continuum of expertise to the welding and steel conditioning industry.
