Butler Gas Products is now a new member and gas vendor partner of the Independent Welding Distributors Cooperative (IWDC).
This new venture sees the US based, industrial gas manufacturer and distributor join forces with the welding cooperative company to emphasise quality merchandise and services that are consistent with North American marketplace demands.
Butler Gas is hoping to gain a strengthened cost position through the IWDC contacts in welding and safety supplies, as well as collaborating with other IWDC members to offer an independent alternative for acetylene (C2H2), hydrogen (H2), helium (He), and specialty gas supply.
Frank Kasnick, IWDC President and CEO, confirmed, “The IWDC is proud to announce (this) new addition to our membership roster effective 1st January 2016.”
This alliance further expands the company’s profile and adds to the list of growing partnerships that Butler Gas Products associates with, including the Buying and Information Group (BIG), the Gases and Welding Distributors Association (GAWDA), the Compressed Gas Association (CGA), the International Oxygen Maufacturers Association (IOMA), the Industrial Gas Suppliers Alliance (IGSA), and the American Welding Society (AWS).
In recognition of its March 1994 incorporation as a cooperative and consistent with a key cooperative principle: Concern for Community, the Independent Welding Distributors Cooperative (IWDC) is organising a fundraising drive for a military foundation - The Wish For Our Heroes Foundation.
Butler Gas Products, a US-based manufacturer and distributor, is supplying Pittsburgh’s Research and Education organisations with innovative solutions for packaged gas supplies.
