It’s pretty impressive to be named the National Craft Champion for pipefitting, but downright amazing if pipefitting isn’t something you do every day. “A lot of the other competitors were from the south and worked on jobs like oil refineries, where they did pipefitting every day,” said Sean O’Dowd of DECCO, who took home the gold medal on March 28 at the 2019 ABC National Convention in Long Beach, California.
We are ready to do it again!
