AWISCO's HISTORY

 

AWISCO New York Corp. has a long history of going above and beyond what needs to be done when serving its welding and industrial supplies customers. AWISCO president Lloyd Robinson, who purchased the company from his father in 2000, has taken that commitment to a deeper level. Based on the belief that service to customers, no matter how hard, is the foundation of the company, AWISCO has created a culture where nothing is too difficult when serving customers. While this idea of "customer-first" is mouthed by many, AWISCO truly gets it right!

 

In 1954, Lloyd Robinson's father, Bernie, and a business partner opened Ace Welding in the Bronx section of New York. A few years later, they merged with two others who owned Harris Welding. In 1972, Harris-Ace was purchased by Bernie Robinson's brother, Jerry, and became part of the Unibraze-AWISCO network. AWISCO aka The American Welding and Industrial Suppliers Corporation, was a name coined by Jerry Robinson and included some 30 distributorships around the world. By 1979, Unibraze was sold and the new investors wanted to dismantle the local distributorships. Coming full circle, Bernie robinson purchased what had become of his original company and renamed it AWISCO new York Corp.

 

 By 2000, bernie robinson was ready to sell his company and retire, at the time their were two locations, Maspeth, NY and Ft. Lauderdale, FL. With a strong foundation laid by his father, Lloyd took over the reins and was ready to take the company to new heights. In the recent years Awisco has expanded to 8 locations, spreading throughout the New York metro area, as well as, into New Jersey and Connecticut
