Company Information

Kobelco Welding of America Inc.

Kobelco Welding of America Inc., (KWAI) was established in Houston, Texas in 1990, as a wholesale company owned by Kobe Steel USA Holdings for marketing Kobelco welding consumables in North America and Latin America.

Since KWAI launched its business, it has worked closely with all its customers through quality services both in sales activities and technical support. Because of its outstanding business attitude, KWAI has earned rapid growth led by its excellent reputation and the distributor’s sales network expansion nationwide. Today, more than 300 distributors are stocking Kobelco welding wires, mostly flux-cored wires, supplied from KWAI. In particular, KWAI’s stainless steel flux cored wires have earned the largest market share, 40%, in the North American market.

KWAI will pursue customer satisfaction, through the activities based on the business slogan QTQ (Quality products, Technical support and Quick delivery), targeting a higher market share. KWAI expanded its sales network by opening the Cincinnati Distribution Center (1996), the Chicago Distribution Center (1999), the Philadelphia Distribution Center (2002), the Salt Lake City Distribution Center (2002) and the Birmingham, AL Center (2006).

Kobelco Fluxed Cored Wire

Kobelco Fluxed Cored Wire is of unsurpassed quality. That’s not just an idle boast or wishful thinking. Just ask any professional welder who has used Kobelco’s flux cored wires.

Kobelco's consistent quality begins with the R & D Department. We never stop researching new materials and processes to make our flux cored wire better, with less spattering and easy slag removal. Wires with excellent arc stability and smooth weldability that produce a beautiful bead…spool after spool. And you won’t have to worry about availability. Because we’re the Welding Company of Kobe Steel, our warehouses are always stocked to meet your needs. In many cases, and order placed today means and order delivered tomorrow. Not weeks or months from now.
