Member Benefits

 

IWDC Membership is a gateway to numerous tangible and intangible business benefits. You get: 

  • Ownership in a profitable cooperative that returns significant annual patronage dividends to our shareholders, the IWDC Member companies.
  • Ownership of the exclusive Weldmark® brand and its related wholesale operation, which together assure you of improved business margins.
  • Purchasing resource efficiency – gained by having IWDC focus on “the 20%” while you focus on “the 80%,” which encompasses the larger spend areas for your business.
  • Two annual meetings that provide extensive networking opportunities for idea-sharing with your peer companies, who face the same challenges you face.
  • Access to PurityPlus®, an exclusive, recognized national specialty gas program aimed at helping our Members start or strengthen their specialty gas business.
