In this role, she will be responsible for overall IWDC marketing initiatives and will also lead our PurityPlus® Specialty Gas program. Erica’s Marketing department will include graphic design, website support, digital marketing, and event planning.

Erica comes to IWDC from Thermo Fisher Scientific where she held field sales and project management positions.

The IWDC is a cooperative, formed in 1994, which leverages the strengths of its independent welding distributor members across North America. IWDC Member companies collectively represent over $2.4B in sales, serving a wide range of industries. The common denominator is that these industries look to them for industrial, specialty, and medical gases as well as related equipment, hardgoods, and consumables. End-use customers served by IWDC Members benefit from having the unparalleled expertise of a local Member distributor who has access to national-scale purchasing and marketing programs.
