ESAB Welding & Cutting Products Donates $120,000 To Disaster Relief Agency Operation USA

May 11, 2018

Annapolis Junction, M.D. – ESAB Welding & Cutting Products has donated $120,845 to Operation USA, a 100-percent privately funded agency that has a four-star rating on Charity Navigator. Inspired by hurricane relief efforts, ESAB made the donation based on 4th quarter sales of some of its highest volume products. Donations included $25 from each sale of ESAB® Rebel™ 215ic and 235ic, $25 from sales of Thermal Dynamics® Cutmaster® 60i and $10 from Victor® Journeyman® and Victor EDGE™ products.

"The generosity of partners like ESAB make our relief and recovery work here in the U.S. and around the world possible," says Richard Walden, CEO & President, Operation USA. "We are so grateful for the support of ESAB as we work to deliver relief materials, fund recovery projects and facilitate long-term rebuilding efforts in the wake of events such as Hurricane Harvey in Texas. This generous donation will allow us to scale our work aiding the storm's most vulnerable survivors in overlooked and under-served Texas communities. Thank you ESAB!"

With a path of destruction stretching for more than 300 miles, some 200,000 homes damaged and more than 1 million people displaced, Hurricane Harvey and the associated flooding caused record damage in Texas and Louisiana.
