Family owned and operated in Auburn, WA since 1967
A family owned and operated business from the beginning, we design and manufacture products right here in Auburn, Washington. In 1967, Art Kleppen and Jim Conley founded CK Worldwide with a mission to make TIG welding a more efficient process. They did it by bringing state-of-the-art, high-performance materials to the relatively simple TIG welding torch. The silicone rubber insulated torch heads they developed first lasted longer, provided better protection from current leakage and survived the inevitable drop at a much higher rate than the phenolic heads they replaced. This coupled with numerous other industry changing innovations paved the way for CK Worldwide to push TIG welding into the future and become 'The Standard in TIG Welding.'
