Did you know there are 84,800 structural steel and welding trades workers in Australia? And 19% of those are located in Victoria. You do maths, that means there are more than 16,000 welding trades workder in Melbourne and that means that for quality welding supplies Melbourne is the place to be.
Welding supplies in Melbourne range from the professional industrial welding machines right through to the most basic equipment that can be used by a home DIYer (given the right skills). The trick is to choose a supplier who delivers locally to Melbourne so you can get your welding supplies precisely when you need them .
So why are welding supplies taking off in Melbourne? Here are two big reasons:
We don’t know if it’s because the GFC made us tighten our belts or because we really like to get our hands dirty, but more and more home DIYers want to give welding a go for themselves. Luckily universities are running great courses to teach people what’s what. For example, Swinburne University of Technology runs a “Introduction to welding” course which covers the basic of Oxy Cutting, GTAW (TIG), MMAW (ARC) and GMAW (MIG) welding especially for the home handyperson. Not only do you learn the types of weld, you learn how to select the right welding rods and consumables for the MIG and TIG processes, as well as safety tips.

Skills are hard to come by in Australia these days, which is why some of the best universities and TAFEs in Victoria are running excellent courses to encourage people to get into the welding trade.
