Effective March 31, Keith Werkley will join the Independent Welding Distributors Cooperative (IWDC) as Director, Vendor Management and Supply Chain.

Established in 1994, the IWDC is a cooperative formed to leverage the strengths of its independent welding distributor members across North America in the industrial, specialty, and medical gases and related equipment, hardgoods, and consumables industries.
Werkley, based in Indianapolis, Indiana, previously served as District Sales Manager/TIG Specialist for Techniweld USA. He spent nine years at ITW’s Weldcraft/Miller Electric line of business in positions of increasing responsibility. Prior to ITW, he was with Jackson Products as their District Sales Manager.
In recognition for his contributions to IWDC, the Industrial Gas & Welding Industry and surrounding Indianapolis community, Pat Garten was presented the Memorial Bob Jackson Award at IWDC’s 22 - 25 September Owners’ Meeting in Sarasota, Florida.
