AWISCO - About Us

Take a look at how we got to where we are today.

Why Choose Us

My father started this welding business in February 1952 and I am proud to say that AWISCO is still a family owned business!

The timeline below looks back at all that has changed to bring AWISCO to where it is today. While there have been many changes over the past [70] years, there are a couple of things that remain the same; a hardworking and dedicated AWISCO staff and loyal customers. I am proud to say that over 30% of AWISCO employees have been employed here for over 10 years. Those staff members account for over 500 years of experience. I would like to thank all AWISCO employees and customers for making AWISCO what it is today!
