The company was originally located in Inverness Scotland and will be brought to the Automation International Inc. facility in Danville Il. USA.

A.I. welders Ltd. provided metal joining machinery, metal forming systems and related equipment globally for over 125 years. The purchase adds to Automation International’s role as an industry leader in the design and manufacture of automated welding equipment including metal forming, production equipment, welding, assembly and spinning. In addition, two product lines in friction welding and rail welding equipment are added to the Automation International line of product offerings.

“This purchase compliments our existing product line of Flash and butt welders, seam welders for coil joining and opens up opportunities in the stationary rail welding and friction welding machines" says Larry E. Moss, President. "We will incorporate our latest technology to these existing designs as well as providing service parts and global support for all the A.I. Welders Ltd. products and equipment."
