About Us

What makes Advance Welding different? – a continuous commitment to quality. Quality is not a buzzword here, it’s the constant pursuit to provide the best possible service. Quality to us isn’t something we discuss in meetings, Quality to us is the continuing effort to employ the most highly trained and skilled welders in the industry. Quality is testing state of the art equipment and purchasing the tools that allow us to do the best job. Quality is our long list of certifications. Quality is everything that we do, and shows in everything that we create.


Advance Welding is committed to providing the highest level of quality in dealing with its customers and suppliers. By implementing continuous improvement and working together as a team, Advance Welding strives to exceed customer’s requirements and expectations. It is this work ethic that keeps Advance Welding a leader in the welding and metal fabrication industry.


“Many Thanks To The Staff At Advance Welding. Several years ago we decided to end our in-house brazing and soldering operations for several reasons, the most important being that it wasn’t an area of expertise for us. It wasn’t long after asking some of our local accounts who they might recommend before we hooked up with Advance Welding, it was the best decision we could have made. It wasn’t long before Chris Kielb the owner sat with us at their facility and explained their operation and capabilities to me, I knew I was in the right place. I appreciate the quick service we receive from their team on the items our customers are pushing us for, the quality of work we receive, the warm reception we receive from Sue at the front desk who always greets us with a smile. And then there’s Kevin who always insists that our tools be accompanied with a drawing ( it’s for our own good, he wants to make sure our customers are getting what they pay for). Our only regret is that we didn’t start this program a long time ago, we’re looking forward to another prosperous year with Advance Welding as our business continues to grow.”

Dan, Branch Manager of American Specialty Grinding – An MSC Industrial Supply Company, Chicopee, MA

“Thank you for your outstanding service. Twice I had emergency situations and you took care of our needs in a timely manner. I appreciate the fine service and the reasonable prices.”

George, President of Baystate Safe & Alarm, West Springfield, MA.


“Just a quick note to express our sincere gratitude for the outstanding welding job you did for us. Our customer was unable to tell where the repair was done on the insert that you welded in five areas. Without your expertise, this would have been impossible.”

Stephen, Owner of Innovative Mold and Machine Services, Chicopee, MA.


“I would like to express my utmost thanks for the outstanding job you and your people did on the jacketed melt pipe. The order was completed in fifteen days from order date to delivery date; normal delivery is about six weeks. During Monsanto’s introduction to Total Quality concept, you demonstrate the true meaning of total quality suppliers.”

James, from Monsanto, Springfield, MA.
