Welding is an art that has been with us for centuries. Just take a look at the light fixtures on your street or whip open the door of your oven. It's a good bet you'll find something in there was welded. Welders in West Wickham have a long and proud history to live up to that began in the Middle Ages.
Many of the treasures found from that period of time have been carbon dated back to the Bronze Age. In fact, you'll see small boxes that were welded together with something referred to as a lap joint. While no one really knows what it was used for, other than the small boxes, at least we know that welding was alive and well even back then. Even the Egyptians created many tools by welding pieces of this and pieces of that together; mostly iron. West Wickham welders are pretty creative in their own right and just the ticket for those tough jobs you need done.
In any event, welding has stayed with us until today and has quite the history and tradition behind it. For instance, did you know which Englishman invented acetylene? His name was Edmund Davy. Or, did you know that gas welding and cutting became "the" way to cement iron bits together and that the first patents for welding were issued to Nikolai Benardos in 1885 (in America) and 1887 (in Britain)?
