Welding supplies news 29.02.2012

Wednesday, February 29th, 2012

So 2012 so far… well i had to hit the world of welding supplies running this year, on my return from the christmas break, things were busy.   Big MIG welders and quality TIG welders being the order of the day.

Sadly it seems to be the time of year that all the manufacturers want to put their prices up, so all the reps are coming in or ringing me asking me if i want to order loads of stuff before their increase, all so keen to look after me!  Of course with the continual rise in raw materials and transportation costs, these rises are inevitable, it is just down to me to try to do our best to minimise the impact on the customer.  But I dont want to dwell on that…

Over the next few days i hope to put some more products into the online catalogue, there are several new MIG welders, and Plasma cutters that have proven themselves locally, so i am now ready to supply them with confidence nationally.

On the welding plant repair side, there have been several machines in of late, absolutely full of metal fab dust…not good, i may have said this before, but it really is a good idea to blow them out a couple of times a year.  Welders can be a complicated electronic machine, living in a pretty harsh enviroment.  10 minutes spent twice a year, can save a lot of expense.

local economy news…it seems that the south west of england is to become a manufacturing mecca, we have always been strong in the food manufacturing industries, and not all pasties and cresam by the way..but with the development of the new nuclear power station at Hinckley point and large distribution and manufacturing centres being built for large supermarket groups in the lower part of the M5 corridor, there is hope that at least some of the UK can get back to doing what we do best…making things well.   So with the range of welding consumables I can offer, some especially made to meet the criteria required by these specialised industries, hopefully I can continue to supply and service the varied and exciting manufacturing progression of the area.

So keep on welding      M.
