Miller Product Manager Quotes

"We're very excited about this opportunity to empower Miller's talented fan base with the Hood Hysteria contest. For many fabricators and metalworkers, a welding hood is a part of a lifestyle and it can capture the very essence of their personality. This is a chance to share that vision with the rest of the community. My advice to entrants is to be original, be bold, be daring."
