Founded in 1987, American Weldquip has been providing superior customer service and a uniquely designed line of high-quality MIG welding torches and consumables to some of the world’s most discriminating welding facilities. In January 2018 we were purchased by Associated Equipment Company and American Weldquip became part of the Profax group of companies.
Profax originated in 1969 from a small machine shop called Van Dresser and Hawkins in Pearland, Texas. Over the past 40+ years, Profax has grown into one of the nation’s leading manufacturers of welding products and specialize in building MIG, TIG, Submerged Arc, Plasma, Arc Gouging Torches, and consumables.
Our business philosophy for over 30 years has been to provide our customers with exceptional personalized customer service, innovative solutions in tough applications and an outstanding quality product. We take great pride in the fact that most of our products are engineered and manufactured in our Sharon Center, Ohio U.S.A. facility. Our design flexibility coupled with a customer service driven company philosophy allows us to ship standard hand-held, automatic and robotic torches within 24 hours and special custom-designed torches typically within 3 days! Today, as always, American Weldquip remains flexible to the needs and requests of our customers. We are dedicated to working together with our distributors and end-users partners so that we all remain competitive.
