Techniweld USA Acquires Metal Man Work Gear

Shared vision, creative synergies and significant resources will redefine what it means to be a welding wholesaler.

Techniweld USA has acquired Wisconsin-based Metal Man Work Gear, the nation’s primary private labeler of welding machines, vivid welding helmets, welding carts, and cabinets for distributors. Metal Man is known as the leader of the “24-hour Repair or Replace Welder Warranty,” providing distributors a truly “sell-and-forget” platform of ultra-high quality welding machines.

The combination of each organization’s strengths and resources means that Techniweld USA will now offer our customers solutions for all their welding needs! Techniweld USA and Metal Man Work Gear recognized that the vision, culture, and values of their respective organizations were aligned.

Originally presented as a serendipitous opportunity to collaborate, it rapidly evolved into what both companies saw as another way to deliver an industry game changer. The acquisition will create opportunities for our customers to offer the entire Metal Man product line of welding machines and vivid welding helmets along with Techniweld USA’s extensive offering of welding-related products.

"I am thrilled that Dave Anderson, founder and president of Metal Man, and his entire organization will join the Techniweld USA team," said Hunter Johnson. president of Techniweld. "Please continue to process your orders through Metal Man in Appleton, Wisconsin. We will maintain inventory at both the Appleton, Wisconsin and Houston, Texas facilities to ensure timely and high fill rates to improve your overall customer experience. We look forward to your continued support with our new addition of Metal Man Work Gear to Techniweld USA."
