WAFE Celebrates 40 years!


Congratulations to Welding Alloys Far East (WAFE), who have recently celebrated an impressive milestone of 40 years in business. Their 40th Anniversay was marked with a special 'Oscars' themed dinner, where team members were recognised for their achievements over the years.

Unfortunately due to the current situation with COVID, Welding Alloys CEO, Dominic Stekly, was not able to be present at the event, but sent his congratulations with a few words from afar in Singapore,

"Greetings from Singapore! So close in terms of kilometers, yet so complicated for me to come and celebrate this anniversary with you all. 40 years is a really tremendous achievement and it's a pity that we can only celebrate tonight under such conditions.

My Dad would have been very proud to see Welding Alloys Far East today - a very smart and efficient manufacturing facility, supplying first-class products all over the region. I hope you are all equally as proud of the development of the company, in terms of quality, production efficiency, and also Health and Safety.

So Well Done to you all, whether you have been in WAFE for 25 years, or 6 months, you are equally welcome in the WA Family. I highly appreciate all of you, and thank you for your efforts in helping to develop the company further."

Welding Alloys Far East Managing Director, Dr. Venugopal Thota, also had some words to share with his team on the night,

"We all hoped that this year will be as fancy as the number 2020; but we were hit with a pandemic, COVID-19. We had to stop our operations for a month. During this month, all of the office team was working from home and managing the delays in dispatches to customers as well as vendors. Another team has been working hard to obtain an approval to start our production. The sales team was doing their best to keep in touch with customers.  With all the hard work, we got approval to start our production – a big thanks to every one of you who worked so hard to fulfil our backlog orders. I thank every one of you for your hard work and dedication during this difficult time.

During all these years, WAFE emerged as one of the strongest and successful company among WA group. We could achieve this due to your hard work and the trust of our customers and all stakeholders on Welding Alloys Quality and Innovation.

Though the pandemic is around, we are not taking back seat. We are moving ahead with new products and services for next year.  We adapted the new normal and have kept going."
