AMBITION and Ray Townsend went hand-in-hand, even when the Townsend Welding Equipment Company was being run out of a home basement upon its launch in 1936.
Within four years, Townsend had shortened the company name to Tweco and moved his operations from that Kansas, US, shed to its first factory.
Today, the company is a global arc welding accesories and products giant - the second biggest in the world. The key to Townsend’s success in the 1930‘s was a commitment to excellence in what he produced, and it bred a culture which still exists at Tweco.
Tweco is now owned by St Louis, US, based global welding giant Victor Technologies International, and is part of the same family of brands as the highly respected Cigweld-brand.
Both brands have an Australian base at Preston, Melbourne.
