November 10, 2020 // Franchising.com // MISSISSAUGA, Ontario - Metal Supermarkets, the world’s largest supplier of small-quantity metals, announced today the winners of the eighth annual Metal My Way contest.
Pitting skilled welders, fabricators, metal-workers and artists against one another to compete for seven different top honors, the Metal My Way contest provides an opportunity for metal professionals and hobbyists alike to showcase their creativity through inventive projects.

Haco, Swift-Cut and Cosen Saws sponsored the contest, with Metal Supermarkets as the title sponsor.

This is a creative way to bring about that recognition.”
The winning submissions were chosen based on criteria such as complexity, intricacy, creativity, uniqueness, craftsmanship, quality of metal used and skill required.
