The Weldclass story

 

 

First, a little bit of history

In the early 1900's, the forebears of the founder of Weldclass pioneered mechanical engineering in Australia, then later invented metal coating technologies that are still being used globally.

Examples of this work that remain standing, and in use today, include;

Historic Buildings at Sydney’s Olympic Park (Homebush) - remnants of what was the first mechanised abattoirs in Australia.

 

 And the pipeline infrastructure powering Sydney’s water supply, via the Warragamba Dam project. 

 

Fast-forward to today

And the same values that drove these pioneers still motivate us every day at Weldclass. 

The values of;

Using different and smarter thinking to solve customers' problems.

Doing what's best for all.

And helping everyone to do great work…. to be outstanding.

That are exciting, reliable and perform at the top of their class. Weldclass is not "just another welding supplier” and we don’t just “bring in stuff”. Behind every product range lies months and years of development, research, testing and perfecting. All with one goal in mind; to deliver a smile when the helmet goes up!
