Oxy-fuel products from Smith Equipment will now bear Miller Electric branding, company officials announced.

The products will continue to be made in Watertown, S.D., to the same longtime high standards, Miller Electric Manufacturing. Co. officials said.

“Our long-term strategy for growth involves building and leveraging the strongest brands in our portfolio,” said Miller Electric President Mike Weller. “Miller is a powerful welding equipment brand in North America and is in the unique position to grow in other product categories, which has led us to consolidate the Smith Equipment oxy-fuel products under the Miller brand.”

Products retaining the Smith Equipment brand name include the Little Torch jewelry torch; QuickBraze HVACR and appliance repair torches; specialty gas regulators; Handi Heet soldering outfits; and Silver Smith air-fuel jeweler’s torches.
