For those not involved in Welding Distribution (Welding Distribution includes Welding Product and Gases Manufacturers, Importers, Wholesalers and Distributors) you may find membership of the Welding World Association more suitable. Please Click Here for further information about what is included where you can also register for Membership and enjoy the many benefits of Welding World. AWD Members will enjoy the benefits of the Welding World Association Membership for FREE from 2017.

Many of our Members have struggled to take time out to attend some of our events because their business activities have prevented them from doing so. They have also expressed how much they have missed the opportunity to discuss their thoughts with others in the Welding World community. The Welding World Board is therefore delighted to announce the provision of the new FORUMS for AWD and WWA Members to communicate which can be found at the link below. We hope that you enjoy using the FORUM and we look forward to reading your comments and suggestions. Please Click Here
