The Rochester Arc & Flame Center (RocAFC) is a 5,000 square-foot training facility designed specifically for welding, glass working and blacksmithing. The mission of RocAFC is to foster exciting and innovative classes for people of all skill levels. Rochester Arc & Flame Center is the only training facility in upstate New York to offer professional and recreational classes in welding, glass working and blacksmithing.Michael Krupnicki is the executive director and founder of the Rochester Arc & Flame Center. He is also in his 29th year withMahany Welding Supply, which has been in existence since 1946. Eleven years ago, Krupnicki had a vision to create welder training classes not only for professional tradesmen but also the general public. Since then, Mahany Welding Supply has trained over 3,000 students through day clinics, night courses, collegiate and vocational classes, and professional welder qualification programs. The success of these welder-training programs prompted Krupnicki to expand his model of training into a separate entity featuring welding and additional flameworking arts. This new entity is known as the Rochester Arc & Flame Center.The Rochester Arc & Flame Center features instructors who are experienced professionals and world-renowned artists to provide the best programs available.
