About Us

ARC Welding & Safety Supplies is New Zealand privately owned & operated company. 

It is all started here, in Hamilton, back in 1984 as a family business. From a small welding supply shop we have grown to an official distributor of the industry's top manufacturers. Our three directors have a knowledge of over 40 years in the welding industry. Over these years we've seen many changes in the industry, and our team keep this pace, constantly learning and updating its knowledge, so we can in turn pass this on to the customer.

Welding is our passion, and this approach comes across the entire team from directors down to the shop floor.

Heart Kids NZ

There are many kiwis facing the enormous challenge of coping with a childhood heart condition. We belive that every single contribution can impact on their lives and wellbeing. 


Every Year, on behalf of our customer base we donate to charities in need.

In 2022, we donated to two charities.

Our reason for donating is we all know someone who has experienced mental health issues and/or domestic violence.

Over the last two years in New Zealand more people have been affected negatively by mental health issues and/or domestic violence. Mental health is an all year-round issue, but with Christmas coming up and the financial pressure put on families, domestic violence will become more prevalent in our community.

We wish to try to combat this by donating to charities that will directly help those in need. We believe it is more important to support these causes then providing a free-be or a cold one.
