Indianapolis, IN – June 6, 2019 – Coming off a highly successful Sales & Purchasing Convention, IWDC sets an all-time monthly record in May with $27 million in Members' spend.
 
“Prior to last month, we have never broken through $26 million and are excited to raise the bar again,” stated Frank Kasnick, President & CEO. “This is a testament to the strength and resilience of the independents in our welding & gas industry, and reflects the strong support from our Vendor partners.”
 
“We are thrilled to announce that our staff, Member Owners and Vendor partners accomplished our goal to raise $50,000 for Workshops for Warriors during our May 2019 Sales & Purchasing annual convention”, reported Keith Werkley, IWDC Director of Sales & Vendor Management. “We would like to thank our Members, Vendors and employees for their generous donations to this worthy cause.” commented Jessica Keck, Manager of Vendor Engagement. “We take great pride in our affiliation and look forward to supporting future campaigns.”
 
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, welding 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.
