We recently held a safety training session at our facility. We now have piece of mind knowing all of our equipment is up to standard and that our employees truly understand the proper operation of the equipment.

Peddinghaus Corporation benefits from our partnership with Weldstar on many levels. We not only receive quality products for use in our Fabrication Shop and on the machine tool products that we manufacture, but also reap the rewards of many value-added services unique to the Weldstar Company.

Thanks so much! I really appreciate the great service and fast response time! You are definitely one of the best companies I have worked with in a very long time! We will be ordering from you as often as we can in the future.

"I was the Building Weld Engineer for the Aurora Tube Facility the past three years, when I needed anything for the weld lines I would call Weldstar. Their response time was second to none and their service is the best in the industry.

Jeffrey DeWyse,
Caterpillar, Inc.

I have been through three major suppliers that either had difficulty with keeping the paperwork straight or keeping the deliveries going to the proper job site. Unfortunately the tolerance for error dealing with welding consumables at BP refinery is zero. I am happy to say that since switching to Weldstar we have had virtually no issues.

I really wish that more companies would place value in true customer service as you and your organization have demonstrated. It's a lost skill these days and it's good to see that some still understand that things like this pay off in customer loyalty.

Eric White,
Skyline Services, LLC

"It costs approximately 1 to 1.5 million dollars a day when a plant is down and not operating, so we have to be very efficient. When you go to the manufacturer, it takes much longer to get a good certified material test report (CMTR) so it’s important to get the correct materials the first time. We use Weldstar for the service and they take the time to do the job right the first time."
