CRC Industries acquires Weld-Aid Products

30 October 2017

CRC Industries, Inc., aquires Weld-Aid Products. Located in Detroit, Michigan, Weld-Aid Products was established in 1958 as a division of the Roy Smith Welding Supply Company and quickly realized there were opportunities to improve the efficiency of the wire feed process in the welding marketplace. Today, Weld-Aid products are designed to both clean and lubricate the wire, reducing friction as the wire is fed to the torch. A full line of welding and metal protection products are marketed, including category-leading products in zinc coatings, anti-spatter and lubricants.

Customers are served through two major selling divisions: the aftermarket division for welding-related cleaning and lubrication products and the zinc rich coatings division, specializing in products and solutions for the galvanizing and infrastructure markets.

The Weld-Aid product business will become part of the CRC Americas Group led by Wayne King, president, CRC Americas.
