We’re a cooperative that was formed in 1994 to leverage the strengths of independent welding distributor members across North America. Actually, IWDC's roots go back even farther to 1948, when an association of distributors (IWDA) was founded that decades later merged with another to become the cooperative from which we grew.
IWDC Member companies serve a wide range of industries. The common denominator is that these industries look to us for industrial, specialty, and medical gases as well as related equipment, hard goods, and consumables. End-use customers served by our Members benefit from having the unparalleled expertise of a local Member distributor who has access to national-scale purchasing and marketing programs.
