Beckley Welding Supply was founded on Oct 10, 1951, by W. D. “Dee” Holliday, Sr. After many years in the Welding Supply business, Dee decided to branch out on his own. He bought two delivery trucks, and opened for business at the company’s headquarters in Beckley, West Virginia. They’ve maintained a store and offices there ever since.
Dee specialized in torch repairs, and established a repair department from the beginning. Beckley Welding Supply is an authorized repair shop for most of the products they sell.
Dave Holliday, Dee’s only son, joined Beckley Welding five years later, and was instrumental in growing the business—first as General Manager, and later as Vice President.
Dee’s youngest daughter, Diann, joined her father in the business in 1971. Her husband Ed was hired by Dee in 1976 as a truck driver. He later became a service technician, then moved up to sales, eventually becoming general manager.
Dee’s second daughter, Delores, came on-board in October 1995 as Receivables clerk. Her husband, Bob, was a longtime salesman for the family business.
In October, 1987, Beckley’s opened its second location in Wilkinson, West Virginia.
