50th Anniversary 50/50 Fundraiser

For GAWDA Gives Back


Help Us Give Back

Donate at the upcoming GAWDA Regional Meetings 

As part of its 50th year celebration, Weldcoa will conduct a special fundraiser at GAWDA Regional Meeting events as a way of “giving back to the industry that made our success possible".

The Weldcoa 50/50 Fundraiser will be different from the typical raffle. During each 2018 regional meeting, one lucky winner will win the entire pot (not half). In addition, Weldcoa will match the pot total up to $1,000 and donate that money to GAWDA Gives Back. The total amount of funds raised will be announced at the GAWDA Annual Meeting in Seattle.

If more than the goal of $1,000 is raised, the overflow will be given to GAWDA Gives Back as well.

If enough tickets are sold to reach the fundraising goal of $1,000, not only will one winner walk away with the entire 50/50 pot, we will also pull a second ticket. That lucky winner will win a iPad Mini provided by Weldcoa.

For any questions regarding our Fundraiser campaign, please contact Bob Ranc at robert@weldcoa.com or Melissa Heard at melissa@weldcoa.com

Celebrating 50 Years of Innovation 

Fifty years ago, Weldcoa was born within Benster Welding Supply. Founder Richard Bennett created the company as a manufacturing firm that supported his distributorship. Eventually, Benster Welding was purchased by Airgas, but by then, Weldcoa had been spun off and was doing what it was born to do, with one significant difference. Instead of supporting one distributor, it was supporting the needs of hundreds of distributors across the U.S.A. today.

There are Weldcoa automated industrial and specialty gas filling systems uniformly filling cylinders all over the world, while Weldcoa’s pallet systems and gas packs are safely transporting cylinders throughout North America.

Our ongoing success will depend on us continuing to employ top technical people, investing within and retaining the trust of our clients. Weldcoa doesn’t want to be the vendor of the day. We partner with our clients in order to provide real long term value. Our founder Dick Bennett said it best, “Weldcoa only succeeds when our client does."”
