Weldmark products have been available for over 30 years and have proven their quality and reliability. It helps, of course, that Weldmark products are manufactured to detailed specifications under rigorous quality control. You’ll be glad to know there’s a locally owned IWDC Distributor near you who has the Weldmark products you want. After all, Weldmark is the only cooperative owned brand that’s proudly represented by more than 600 independent welding distributor locations across North America.

IWDC Members each own a voting share, and the cooperative is governed by bylaws filed in the State of California. In addition to having a staff that manages day-to-day operations, a Board of Directors made up of Member principals provides oversight and stewardship.
link
The IWDC has, at any given time, a half dozen or so active Committees that are formed to tackle ongoing business opportunities. Member personnel serve with the IWDC staff on these Committees, and ideas flow back and forth between the Committees and our entire membership.
link

Primary IWDC Committees include those devoted to:

Marketing – which focuses on key vendor programs, IWDC’s brands, and Web-based initiatives

Purchasing – which focuses on Volume/Growth/Rebate Agreements with key Vendor partners

Expense Control – which focuses on sourcing Agreements for back-office spend


link
Besides opportunities provided by serving on Committees or the Board, the IWDC has two annual meetings that provide terrific networking and best-practice sharing opportunities: our Sales & Purchasing Conference and our Owner’s Meeting.
