Founded in a Kansas City garage in 1967, WELD was the result of a relentless pursuit of speed, durability and safety. Highly successful Sprint Car driver Greg Weld was unable to find the right combination of strength and performance in wheels that were being made, so he decided to make his own.
Fifty years later, a lot has changed but the values of WELD remain. Our production facility is less than a mile from Pappy Weld’s Speed Shop where Greg’s race cars were built, and his passion for performance continues to fuel the company today. Innovation lives on in our industry leading products and relentless pursuit of speed and strength.
In 2014, WELD acquired CCW, a sports car wheel company founded on the need for a better road racing wheel. Today, CCW is known as a leader in forged road race and tuner street wheels.
WELD became a manufacturer of carbon fiber wheels in 2015 through the acquisition of off road carbon wheel pioneer, HiPer Technology. WELD was able to develop HiPer into a diversified provider of technology based performance wheels across a wider range of ATV and UTV customers.
In early 2017, WELD merged with the MOMO Automotive Group to form one of the industry’s largest high performance and motorsports powerhouses. With some of the most iconic brands in the portfolio, the combined company now includes:
Regardless of the customer or segment, WELD honors our fifty years of industry leading heritage each day through our people, our products, and our values.
