WeldUK started trading in 1995 under the name: Newby Welding Supplies. The two owners of WeldUK are Mary and Geoff Newby. The business started with Mary and Geoff selling from home in Nottinghamshire (UK) and travelling to local trade fairs.
From these humble beginnings, Mary and Geoff started their first website that was simply a ‘brochure on the net’ and experienced huge growth and has even more potential to grow. This created a worldwide audience and through customer demand they decided to commission a professionally designed, e-commerce enabled website to service WeldUK’s now worldwide customer base more efficiently.
The strategy of aiming at the DIY end of the market has proved to be remarkably successful in firmly placing WeldUK in its niche in the market. This strategy coupled with the worldwide presence of the Internet has meant that WeldUK have now sold welding items to customers in dozens of countries.
