Welding Engineering, Design, and Inspection

Why Retain Pow Tech Welding Engineers for Certification?

When you undertake Certification through the Canadian Welding Bureau (CWB), you need retained welding engineers who will become active in your welding program to meet all the requirements in the most effective way.

Pow Tech’s philosophy over the years has been to work very closely with the company’s personnel and the CWB to both obtain and maintain certification. Our benefit to you comes through our understanding and experience with certification, our extensive knowledge and experience of welding, and our understanding of systems that keep you on course.

The Welding Engineering Division consists of Welding Engineers, and Welding Engineering Technicians who understand the welding process and requirements.
