Last year was a significant year for RMA as we transitioned from US Welding to Rocky Mountain Air Solutions, and implemented a new ERP system in partnership with Epicor and Track About. Not only that, but our President, Rick Lofgren was nominated and accepted to join the Independent Welding Distributors Cooperative (IWDC) Board of Directors! Rick began his three-year term as the new representative for the western region on November 3, 2017.
IWDC is a cooperative that aims to support welding distributor members across the continental USA. Although it was officially founded in 1994, there has been an association of distributors dating back to 1948. Members represent the industrial, specialty and medical gas industries, and the IWDC provides related companies with expertise to succeed in their businesses.
Rick describes his election to the Board of Directors as the next step to building RMA’s long-term growth strategy. He believes that “the co-op will help RMA continue to offer flawless dependability and success in an increasingly demanding environment.” This partnership with fellow leaders in the industry will continue to expand RMA’s network of opportunities for years to come.
Congratulations, Rick! We are looking forward to where this new partnership can help RMA grow.
