Our team has visited more than 500 different welding stores in North America. In addition, our team has spent more than 6 months of time in stores observing shopper behavior.
We understand that it’s not enough to just put products on a shelf or hook.
Product placement in the store is key. It depends on traffic patterns. It depends on turn frequency of items. And it depends on understanding how many customers would likely buy the product.

We will work with you to understand what tools work best for your business. Items may include brochures, posters, signs, counter mats, flyers, mailing stuffers, presentations, and more.
