Eddie’s Welding Equipment has recently relocated its headquarters to a larger building in the Houston area. The company, which markets torches, torching supplies, hoses, safety glasses and other equipment for the scrap metal and demolition industries, says it has seen a significant increase in its business over the past several years, which has allowed it to expand with the purchase of the new building.

Previously, Eddie’s Welding operated for many years from leased property. The new building has doubled the space available to the company.

Eddie Grosman, president of family-owned Eddie’s Welding Equipment, says the company has focused aggressively on the scrap metal and demolition sectors. He estimates his company supplies equipment and services to 1,800 companies in these two sectors, almost all of them in the U.S.

As for the reason the company has seen a strong increase in its business, Grosman says, “We know our stuff. We know our product.” Additionally, Grosman says the company carries a large inventory on hand, which allows it to ship orders to its customers quickly.

With the move to a larger building, Eddie’s Welding also is able to expand the types of equipment it offers. “With the new building we have added 25 new items,” Grosman says. Eddie’s Welding also can stock 8-foot torches, something many other suppliers don’t keep on hand, he notes.

The three-generation family business stocks more than 400 long torches and more than 2,000 welding and cutting tips on hand. Grosman says the company can ship out most orders on a same day basis.
