IWDC members achieve record spend in June

Welding distributor cooperative IWDC reported that the spend among member companies through the co-op exceeded $21 million in June.

The total surpassed the previous record from May 2014 by more than $1.7 million.

“We’ve actually never broken through $20 million in any month, so this is quite a milestone,” said Frank Kasnick, president and CEO. “This is a testament to the strength and resilience of the independents in our welding and gas industry, and reflects the strong support from our vendor partners.”

“This comes on the heels of an all-time record March,” added Keith Werkley, director of marketing and vendor management. “We had a terrific sales and purchasing convention at the end of May, and together with June’s record, we have a strong first half to build upon.”
