Automation International, Inc. is a compilation of several former welding companies merged into one. As such, our heritage dates back to the initial industrial welding growth of the U.S. in the early 1900's. Through the history of our mergers and acquisitions, A.I.I. has shown unbroken continuity in the supply of arc and resistance welding machines and metalworking equipment for over 100 years.
26 years ago with the merging of three well-known industrial machinery companies, Swift-Ohio Welder Co., Federal Welder and Machine Co., and Berkeley-Davis Co., they became Automation International, Inc. Two new acquisitions – Hess Industries in 2013 and A.I. Welders, Ltd. U.K. in 2014, aligned with their design and manufacturing of a variety of automated, flexible welding and forming systems ranging from one machine to a complete production line, making Automation International, Inc. a global leader in the industry.
