Joe Greco, President of Greco Gas Inc., has been awarded the Independent Welding Distributors Cooperative’s (IWDC’s) esteemed Bob Jackson Memorial Award in appreciation of his contributions to his industry.
Greco was bestowed with the accolade for his integral involvement and contributions to the IWDC, the industrial gas and welding industry, and the wider Pennsylvanian community after leading his company’s growth for over 37 years.
Under Greco’s leadership, the fourth generation business has expanded to four locations in the US state of Pennsylvania, as well as launching a microbulk gas offering and diversifying into specialty gases, dry ice and propane.

Greco was presented the award at IWDC’s Owners’ Meeting, which took place from 11th-14th October in Dana Point, California.
