What an exciting week at Pro Weld, Inc. Our very own employee and Eagle Point High School Senior Gavin Frazier sparked KOBI NBC5 New’s attention through his eager tradeskill learning. Not even 24-hours earlier, he caught the eye of EPHS’ District 9 staff which secured the “Student Spotlight” post on the District’s Eagle Point Facebook Page.
KOBI NBC5 ‘s Anna Weeks promptly contacted Pro Weld, Inc. for an opportunity to catch Gavin in action at the 1316 Ave G – 14,000 square foot facility in White City. The request to interview Gavin and owners was fielded by co-owner Penny Oberlander for which there was an immediate “yes.”
Co-Owner Penny shared, “Gavin is an employee seen as an incredible asset. We are providing him in-house training which is foundational for a career in welding. If anyone deserves it, it’s Gavin.”
Below you will find the full interview, as shown on the KOBI NBC5 website.
WHITE CITY, Ore. — A senior at Eagle Point High School is getting hands on experience, while still getting school credit.
“It’s like your own world when you put your helmet down,” Gavin said. After taking a metals class his sophomore year, Gavin Frazier said he found his passion: welding. Now, he is getting school credit while working part time at Pro Weld in White City.
“I don’t really like sitting down in class, and just like, listening to a teacher,” Gavin said.
Instead, Gavin decided to get hands-on experience in the field. When Pro Weld owners James and Penny Oberlander were put in contact with the teen, they saw a certain spark.
“It’s been great to watch him grow and at his age he’ll, if he continues, he’ll be one of those Prima Donnas when he’s like 40 probably,” Penny said.
He’s been working at Pro Weld part time since July. After Gavin’s done with class, he heads over to the shop to learn from the pros.
“He’s learning the whole gamut. How to rig, how to take these overhead cranes and turn stuff over and how to do structural welding,” James said.
“When your hood goes down, all your focus on is where you’re welding and it’s like whatever is going on behind you, it really doesn’t matter,” Gavin said.
Some of his the projects he has worked on can already be seen around town, from bike racks to a bridge being built in Ashland.
“Actually having to get the tools out and actually have to lift the beam and be literally there, the hands-on experience, then you really get the this is how it’s really done cause they actually did do it,” James said.
The Oberlanders told me there’s a lack of tradesmen in the work force. Getting students interested in welding early, ensures there will be great welders to come. They say there instincts were right, this teen is different. “It doesn’t matter if it’s in metric, if it’s in a different language, he can just by sight look at it and get it started and adjusted and that’s, that’s a pretty good statement,” James said.
After he graduates high school, Gavin wants to make this his career. His dream? To become an iron worker.

Welding is a challenging and rewarding field of work as well as a fun hobby that can have some advantages. The experts at Pro Weld would love to help you with your complex welding projects. However, knowing how to weld can be a huge help for simple welding projects around the house. Here are some ways to learn welding as a hobby:
1. Attend a welding class at a local community college- most community colleges offer inexpensive welding classes that anyone can register for. It may be smart to visit the campus and tour the facilities. Furthermore, ask the instructors a few questions about the course and what skills you will be able to accomplish upon completion.
Community College Welding Classes are a great way to learn how to Weld
2. Learn on your own. After gathering the proper equipment, including safety apparel, begin clearing your work area. Be sure you have a clean, dry, and level surface that is heat resistant and nonflammable. Next, begin familiarizing yourself with your welding equipment while they aren’t powered, to avoid injury. Once you feel comfortable begin practicing, following safety procedures.
Teaching yourself to Weld can be extremely helpful around the house
3. Seek out a Professional Welder that can show you the basics. Do you have a friend or family member that is a welder? If not, then you could try approaching local fabrication shops to see if anyone would be willing to show you the ropes. Some welding shops even offer apprenticeship programs to teach prospective welders.
Professional Welders are experts at their craft and can help you learn how to Weld
Welding is a fun, active hobby for many people and the time you have off for Labor Day weekend may be the perfect time to begin learning the ins and outs of welding. Remember, if you ever run into a project that is above your skill level Pro Weld has welding experts with extensive experience that can tackle any project you have.

In any industry there are specific ways to get the advantage over competition, like how Pro Weld focusses on the quality of every single weld instead of rushing to boost the quantity of products produced. There are also some secrets to running a small business in any industry. Success of a business is not an accident, it is seeing what others in your industry do not see, then acting on that knowledge. Here are 5 secrets that will help you succeed in any industry:
The Pro Weld team helping the community when Extreme Makeover: Home Edition came to Medford, Oregon.
1) Know how to delegate tasks and manage your own time. In a small business the inclination is to do everything your self, but to succeed you need to be able to trust those that you put on your team.
2) Appreciate all every good thing that comes out of running your own business, no matter how small. If you feel fulfillment from what you are doing for a living you will be more productive, and it will spread to everyone working around you!
3) Give back to your community in every way that you can. This could include employing people in your community, or being a part of a project that helps people, an example of this is when Pro Weld helped when Extreme Makeover: Home Edition came to Medford, Oregon. When you give back to the community it is not just good public relations, it will also give you the chance to build real relationships with others in your community.
Small businesses should have a goal of steady growth
4) Don’t grow your business too fast, because it can lead to a multitude of problems. Business growth should be done at a rate that you are able to keep up with.
5) Praise your employees in public, this will increase their confidence and make them actually want to work for you. The other side of this is to criticize their work in private. No one wants to be called out in public, and consistently doing this will decrease an employee’s motivation to do well in tasks that are assigned to them.
All of us at Pro Weld hope that these business secrets will drive your company to future success!
