Welded Tubes of Ohio succeeds by working with customers and manufacturing high-quality tubing.

By Mark Lawton, Knighthouse Media

Welded Tubes was founded in 1958 and originally produced small diameter tubing for the auto industry but soon switched to manufacturing tubes for vacuum cleaners and floor cleaning equipment produced by such companies as Hoover and Electrolux. In the late 1990s, manufacturers of floor cleaning equipment began going overseas for their steel tubes – China, in particular – or began using plastic instead of steel tubing. “We had to reinvent ourselves,” says Iain Gilchrist, vice president of sales, who started at Welded Tubes in 2006. “We went back to automotive to promote our engineered electric resistance welded product and technical services.”
