Murex Welding Products
Murex are one of the world’s leading manufactures of welding products and trace their history back to 1909 when they were established in Rainham, Essex. Originally operating as a metal refinery, they found that the bulk of their trade was in powdered metal alloys which were much in demand for the production of welding electrodes. Deciding to enter this market themselves, they acquired two electrode manufacturers and the firms were merged in the 1930s under the name Murex Welding Processes. In 1982, this company was itself acquired by ESAB, providing a global reach for a company who remains headquartered close to their origins, nowadays operating out of Waltham Cross in Hertfordshire.
