My name’s Mark Bellinger, I’m a 3rd generation welder. I’ve been welding/fabricating for the past 15 years. My passion for welding started when I was a child, with one of my earliest memories being with my father putting sparklers in the electrode holder for our stick welder to let me pretend I was welding. Since then my passion has only grown. Welding is an art form that can always be improved on, and I thrive on chasing that perfection. I am qualified through AWS in SMAW, GMAW, and GTAW under AWS D1.1, D1.2, D1.3, & D1.6 codes. My next goals are to obtain my CWI (Certified Welding Inspector) & CWE (Certified Welding Educator) licenses. I thoroughly enjoy transferring my knowledge to those with the willingness to learn, and watching them grow. I care about creating well rounded welders for the next generation to be built upon. Some of my hobbies include restoring classic vehicles, building mega trucks, and racing my dirt bike when I find the time.
