History: Marriage of IWDC & KDG

 

Marriage of the IWDC & the KDG

Negotiations began early in 1994 to create a marriage between the newly formed Independent Welding Distributors Cooperative (IWDC) and the Key Distribution Group (KDG). Distributors in these discussions included Bob Jackson, Jim Madison, Joe Greco, Charlie Wright, Mike Beckley, and Rick Richardson.

The association effectively took place January 1, 1995, and added fifty members in the northeastern and Midwestern United States. Soon after, the Independent Distributor Group joined the IWDC, and as of January 1, 2000, the Independent Welding Distributors Cooperative included 142 members with 510 locations in the 46 states, Canada, and Mexico.
