About Us

Andrew D'Alton started Arc-Rite Welding & Safety Ltd in 1991 following a long career in Sales within the welding and paint industry.

Since that time, our family run business has become a main player within the industry. Not only do we specialise in Welding including Mig, Tig and all associated consumables, but we also supply a comprehensive range of PPE, Power and Hand Tools and Safety Footwear. One of our largest areas of business is our Paint and Industrial Coatings - we are one of the UK's largest supplier of paints for steel, boats and DIY use.

On this website, you can purchase some of the most popular of our products including Arc Inverter Welders, Mig Welders, Tig and MMA welding machines.

We offer all associated consumables for the welding and construction industry. Any items not on this website can be purchased by calling us. Our stock includes Aluminium and Stainless steel welding supplies, tips, shrouds, nozzles and ceramics.

Alongside these avenues, we also manufacture, in house, a large range of Industrial paints, with one of our major suppliers being Protega & Sepncer Coatings.

We have experience in Rail Track specifications, Intumescent and Epoxy coatings. Our expansion has included our Embroidery and Heat Sealing facilities, where corporate clothing and badging is carried out by trained staff within our premises.

As a family run business, we pride ourselves on excellent customer service, technical expertise and a quick and efficient delivery service.

Our own fleet of vehicles deliver throughout the North West, and with the support of several national couriers, we ensure that products are despatched quickly across the UK. Being based very close to the M6 means we have access to all major routes and are happy to provide goods direct to customers sites should the need arise.

We are very proud of our new trade counter. Refurbished over the xmas of 2015, it offers a bright and comfortable shopping experience with fully stocked shelves. Pop along and meet Ken, our shop mannequinn - he changes regularly to suit the seasons!
