About AWS Detroit Section

AWS Detroit Section is a non-profit welding organization in Detroit, Michigan, area with a mission to advance the science, technology, and application of welding and allied processes, including joining, raising, soldering, cutting, and thermal spray. Through our bulletins, scholarship programs, and events, we promote welding and weld technicians in the region.

Detroit Past Chairs

We have been a part of the Metro-Detroit community since 1924. As a member of the American Welding Society, we participate in activities and share information through the main organization, which is located in Miami, Florida, as well as with other sections across the United States.

If you're a part of the welding community, please consider joining our organization and help us continue to support the future of welding. The Detroit area and the nation as a whole lack the skilled labor that is needed to fill the open welding jobs that are currently available. These are well-paying jobs that many of us have enjoyed for years.
