IWDC Programs Overview

 
As a Member Owner of the IWDC, you’re eligible to participate in any of the numerous programs we offer:
  • IWDC Warehouse
    • 30,000-square-foot wholesale operation located in Indianapolis that offers more than 2,500 high-“inventory turn” products
  • IWDC Gas Program
    • Agreements that assure continuous supply of – and price protection for – all your atmospheric gases
  • IWDC Vendor Partnerships
    • Approximately 200 agreements that the IWDC has worked closely with key vendors to construct over the years (These agreements are not only beneficial to our Preferred Vendors and Recommended Vendors but also maximize terms and rebates for our Members across hard goods, gases, and Expense Control products.)
  • IWDC National Accounts
    • Approximately 630 Member locations spanning North America, enabling a consistent and uniform inventory of gases, hard goods, and services, and achieving $2 billion in retail sales
  • Weldmark®
    • Our exclusive, proprietary, high-quality brand of products that are represented by more than 140 independent welding distributors across North America, bringing exceptional value to our Members and end-use customers alike
  • PurityPlus®
    • A network of 30 independent specialty gas producers throughout North America, all of whom are audited on an ongoing basis, and most of whom meet ISO 17025 accreditation (As it stands, the IWDC represents the largest number of ISO-accredited laboratories in the United States’ specialty gas supply network. Several of our facilities have achieved ISO 9000 as well as ISO 17025 credentials.)
  • Strategic Vendor Management
    • A core strength of the IWDC is our Vendor Agreements, which enable our Members to compete on a level playing field … and often even give them an advantage in the marketplace.
  • Expense Control Program
    • The IWDC Expense Control Program is made up of 50-plus industry- and non-industry-related Vendor products and services that are offered to our Members to help control their “bottom line” costs of doing business.
Each of these programs has but one primary goal: to improve a distributor’s business and give it a greater competitive edge in the marketplace. Couple these programs with our renowned best practices and our generous rebate program, and you’ve got a surefire recipe for success. If you’d like still more information on our various programs and how they can benefit you, please contact the IWDC.
