“Where will you find your next best welder?”
Australian fabrication can be flat out, or real quiet.
The quiet times can be worked through, but win a job; you get busy real quick.
Can your welding team expand or contract with these ups and downs?
The Australian welding community today:
- Has 134,000 MIG/MAG welders, at an average age of 54.
- In 11 years, 60% of those welders will retire.
- The starting point today is a welder shortfall of 15%.
- It takes 4-5 years to develop a competent welder using traditional method
With fewer welders around to make up the team how do you solve these business bumps?
Your welders have to be good and effective; it’s expensive if they’re not.
The smart solution? Have a welding workforce that can step up when required.
It’s about creating flexibility within the welding team. Don’t just favour a few, make sure all contribute equally.
