When our founder Oscar Kjelberg developed the world's first welding electrode in 1904, he launched a company whose innovation and uncompromising standards have helped create the history of welding itself.

From the firsts by our founder to our global growth, we take pride in what we've accomplished in a century and a decade. But we do so with a keen eye on the next 110 years. Because at the end of the day, it's not where you've been that matters most - but where you're going. And for us, that's forward.

ESAB South Africa delivers superior-value performance that allows today's industrial fabricator to attack any challenge with confidence.
