Earlbeck welding excellence award: Ready to meet needs of growing welding industry


Earlbeck Gases & Technologies has been selected as the winner of the 2017 Excellence in Welding Award recipient in the Educational Facility category from the American Welding Society (AWS) and WEMCO, an association of welding manufacturers. The awards were announced last November at the FABTECH conference in Chicago.

Baltimore-based Earlbeck Gases & Technologies dates back to 1919 (the same year the AWS was founded), when it was first formed as the T.A. Canty Company, a wholesale welding products distributorship.
