We will help you put together the most efficient welding machine package to suit your requirements, set up and test the welder and accessory equipment, provide introductory training for the operator and give you on-going support to ensure you get the best from your investment.

We stock MIG, TIG, stick and arc welders with a focus on the newest inverter welder technology.

Just as there was a big leap forward from transformers to inverters, the new high speed inverter welding machines promise even greater efficiencies. Developed by LORCH of Germany, these innovative technologies not only improve speed but other key welding parameters to optimize productivity.

NEWSFLASH!  Congratulations to LORCH, winners of "The Best New Welding Product Supplier" in the 2018 Welding Worlds Awards for the unquely innovative MicorMIG range of welders with MicorBoost and NFC technology. Check out the MicorMIGs here LORCH welding machines

Overall, our range of welders are selected to suit the requirements and budgets of welding work ranging from heavy duty, high use to refined and exacting quality jobs.

We also have a range of small welders suitable for industrial off-site work where portability is important.

What all our welding machines have in common is quality, durability and reliability, take a look at the range on this site and call us for further information and expert advice.

Welding machines are an asset to choose with care - our aim is to provide the most efficient welding supply solution for you.
