our story

Weldsafe was founded in 1982 to supply quality welding equipment and consumables allied to strong technical support not previously available in the industry distribution network.

Having established the business as a top industry competitor right from the beginning, Weldsafe continued to develop by expanding into the supply of SPX Flow Powerteam hydraulic jacking, lifting and torqueing equipment, Hypertherm plasma cutting machines, Metabo professional power tool solutions and 110v site electrics.

Weldsafe are authorised distributors of ESAB welding and cutting equipment and consumables and more recently, Fronius welding systems, achieving the highest recognition possible as an ESAB Platinum Distributor and Fronius Authorized Partner Plus.

Today, Weldsafe continues to provide unparalleled service on the highest quality and contemporary welding equipment, along with in house and on-site weld plant servicing, calibration and repairs.
