CWB Group and EWI are forming a strategic alliance.

Effective immediately, the alliance will propel growth for Columbus, Ohio-based EWI and its stakeholders through significant new investments by CWB Group in current and new technical innovations and solutions in manufacturing processes, access to CWB Group’s workforce training and learning resources, and rapid introduction into the Canadian market. Milton, Ontario-headquartered CWB Group will create new organizational capabilities through this affiliation agreement, which will allow for further development of technical solutions in manufacturing processes.  It will also support a robust array of services and improve the CWB Group and EWI’s capabilities to shape the future of welding and joining globally, CWB says.

“EWI was actively searching for investment capital to expand its technology and other service offerings in order to compete successfully in a rapidly evolving marketplace,” said Henry Cialone, President & CEO of EWI. “Our strategic alliance with CWB Group accelerates our ability to advance our mission of delivering innovative technical solutions that fuel our customers’ competitiveness in new and exciting ways, while allowing EWI to remain a US nonprofit corporation.”

“CWB Group is excited about the opportunities that will open up for both of us,” said Doug Luciani, President & CEO of CWB Group.  “The alliance will allow us to ramp up capabilities in current and new technologies and in additional workforce training and learning resources, resulting in new ways to create value for our customers. We are excited to partner with EWI, a highly complementary ally, to develop powerful new solutions for our customers.”

CWB Group is an industry-supported private sector not-for-profit organization that provides integrated services to nearly 10,000 companies and 100,000 professionals across the welding and joining industry in nearly 50 countries worldwide.

EWI also has a technology center in Buffalo, New York and offers commercial and government sector clients services related to joining and industrial process technologies, materials engineering and structural integrity, data science, and lab services and testing. EWI also operates consortia that act as hubs for the advancement of specific technologies and industries, all of which are designed to improve public/private collaboration, strengthen U.S. manufacturing supply chains, and make U.S. manufacturers more competitive on a global scale.
