A Little Bit About Us...
Where we came from
It started over 35 years ago, in Tamworth (regional NSW), with a small sales van and an Aussie with a passion for helping his fellow metal fabricators succeed. This family-owned business grew to become Weldclass - now one of the leading lights in the Welding and metal-fabrication supply market.
Time moves on, but our passion for helping others remains unchanged.
.. is to add value to the businesses and lives of all our stakeholders - including our customers, our suppliers, and our staff.
Reliable = If it’s worth doing, it’s worth doing well & it's worth finishing

We're passionate about helping others and supporting the wider community. Drought relief, wheelchair sports and support for service veterans are just some of the causes we've been proud to get behind. Read more about our charity support here.
We're easy to deal with.
Whether it’s supporting our distributors, handling a warranty claim or answering your questions… we’re constantly looking for ways to get you what you need fast, make your job easier and be the company that you know you can rely on.
It’s about supply!
The best products in the world are worthless if you can’t get supply when you need it. We’ve set ourselves to provide the welding industry's best supply rate, and you can even check up on our progress here; The Weldclass Supply-O-Meter
Professional presentation & communication.
We believe that consistent and clear communication is critical. Be it our website, product packaging, merchandising solutions, distributor training programs, or product literature… we’re super passionate about clearly communicating what you can expect from Weldclass and from our products.
Weldclass is not "just another welding supplier” and we don’t just “bring in stuff”. We do lots of customer research before we choose our products....we carefully source from manufacturers world-wide, analyse their capabilities and painstakingly work with them to develop products to deliver what the professional welder expects....both now and in the future.
From helmets and welding safety products to abrasives, consumables and welding accessories.... Weldclass products are used successfully by welders right across the country. They are the mainstay of professionals in engineering workshops, mine sites, manufacturing plants, farm sheds and building sites.
Weldclass products have been used to repair stockyards, build pipelines, repair machinery, construct infrastructure....and maybe even built your house or shed!
Sure, our products are built to survive the rigours of the factory floor but we like to think that what makes Weldclass different is the extra time we put into getting the product right for you.
We really enjoy delivering unexpected solutions. While many of our products may look familiar and similar to others...there are quite a few that perform above and beyond, or provide solutions that save you hassle & time.
Just to name a few: the EC500H earth clamp, the self-attaching helmet hood, and the Weldclass Clear Lens range. Or the legendary Platinum GL-11 Gasless Wire; (we've lost count of how many welders tell us that this is the smoothest-running, most user-friendly gasless wire they've ever used!).
Weldclass products are sold through our network of distributors in all states and regions Australia, plus other locations in the South Pacific region.
We want Weldclass products to be readily available to welders and metal fabricators everywhere, and our distributors are a vital and valued 'link in the chain'. Rather than being 'just another supplier', we strive to partner with our distributors to help them become more successful, by supporting them with training, market-leading merchandising systems, and strong after sales support.
Customer Driven Innovation
Our regular customers have been with us for years not just because of our products but because of the time, care and energy we put into our customer service.

Listening to our customers is what we do best and that’s what has kept us going and growing for over 35 years.
For the customer. By the customer. Because we would not be here without You.
