Forney Industries is one of America’s longest operating family owned tool, equipment and accessory product companies. Headquartered in Fort Collins, Colorado, the company was founded in 1932 and introduced the first publicly available arc welder in the 1940s. Today, we offer close to 5,000 metalworking products within four categories: Welding, Abrasives, Personal Protective Equipment and Shop Tools. Our products are sold under 3 brands: Forney®, ForneyHide™ and Forney Easy Weld®. 


We have an extensive customer network approaching 20,000 retail automotive aftermarkets, hardware, farm & ranch, do-it-yourself and industrial locations across the nation. Forney is committed to providing the best product mix and most personal support services possible. We are large enough to source globally and sell nationally, yet remain humble to remember who it is we are actually working for and with.
