Jetline® Welding Automation Products Integrated into Miller Brand
Transition expands Miller welding automation offerings for customers, while maintaining the same high-quality performance of the Jetline Engineering products.
APPLETON, Wis. (Nov. 21, 2016) — Miller Electric Mfg. Co., has announced the integration of welding automation products from Jetline Engineering into the Miller brand. The integration allows Miller to better serve customers with an expanded offering of welding automation solutions. Effective November 16, 2016, Jetline Engineering will be branded Jetline by Miller.
“Aligning Jetline with the Miller brand strengthens our portfolio of welding automation solutions. We can offer our customers more options to improve their efficiencies, while also continuing to deliver the reliable support services they need,” said Kevin Kari, marketing manager, Miller. “There will be no changes to the high-quality products that the Jetline brand is known for — we will continue to produce exceptional precision and productivity.”
Founded in the 1950s, Jetline pioneered the development of automated welding methods and machines for the aerospace industry and went on to produce welding automation systems — leading in seam and circumferential welding systems — for a diverse customer base. Jetline was acquired by Illinois Tool Works (ITW) in 2000 and integrated into the ITW Welding Products Group, which also includes Miller and Hobart® Filler Metals.
Jetline will transition its branding by changing to a joint logo on all products, labels and marketing communication materials. Jetline customer support and service staff will remain in Irvine, California.
