Irrgang continued Lincolnís strong financial performance - weathering two recessions while maintaining productivity and securing Lincoln Electricís leadership position in the arc-welding equipment and supply business. Irrgangís conservative business practices enabled Lincoln to withstand stiff competition, continue its 30-year no layoff policy, and churn out some of the strongest financial returns of any US business in the 70ís.
