Vintage Years!

J A Cunningham Eqpt. Inc. has been in business for over 71 years! Paul and Clete Cunningham are second-generation owners and have carried on the work of selling welding supplies and gases.
We host a summer luncheon to keep in touch with all the friends we’ve made through the years.  Here’s a few photos we’d like to share.

Many of decades of experience and wisdom!

What do we mean by ‘Reconditioned’?

At J.A. Cunningham Equipment, we’ve been working on all brands of welding machines, plasma cutters, positioners, and turning rolls for decades. Our certified technicians give every machine a thorough cleaning and inspection. The machines are also tested with our diagnostic tools to assure they can reach their stated voltages and amperages without any problems. If safety covers are broken or missing, we order more from the manufacturer and replace them. If boards are blown, we purchase the exact same board or update a machine with a newer board. If plugs, points or connections are worn or shot, we will take the time to order the correct parts and replace them.

All of these efforts are for you. We don’t want to simply offer you a reasonably priced used machine. We don’t want to sell you something “as is”. We want to guarantee that the reconditioned machine or device you purchase from us arrives in excellent working condition.

Our technicians are also great problem solvers, so if you have an issue that you can’t seem to resolve, give us a call and we’ll put you on the phone with someone who can help.

For decades J.A. Cunningham Equipment has been servicing machines for the entire Delaware Valley and beyond. Our customers are loyal because we give them what they want and always at competitive prices. exists as an extension of our physical headquarters in Philadelphia and our other location in York, PA. Rely on for all of your replacement machines, consumables and tools. If you don’t see it on the site, chances are we still have exactly what you are looking for, and at a great price, so feel free to give us a call and our knowledgable staff will be happy to help.

Today we dedicated our Blair Street building to our friend and co-worker Bill Nipps.  It is now officially the William B. Nipps Building. Bill has been with us since October of 1961 with Cunningham Equipment! We are blessed and honored to have him here every day working with us. Cheers to you, William B. Nipps!

The sign reads: “In honor of a man known for being generous, gregarious, hilarious and unanimous.”

What do you expect from your welding supply company?

We’ve been having a productive conversation in LinkedIn about what a customer should expect from their local welding supply company. It seems that most folks prefer to buy their supplies from their local distributor, rather than online stores. We are a local supplier for many hundreds of professionals in the PA, DE, and NJ area. Our goals are customer satisfaction, quick delivery and competitive prices. Here are some excellent points that contributors to our LinkedIn discussion have made so far:

  • A supplier should have great prices and quick delivery on all industrial gasses
  • Great deals on wire and other consumables
  • Machine sales
  • Machine and equipment rentals
  • Machine maintenance & service
  • Loyalty to their customers

As a local supplier and a national supplier through this website and our webstore, we are committed  to providing the best services and prices that are possible. We will work hard to supply you with the most competitive prices on the market. If you see an item in our webstore and would like our bulk prices or to request a rental machine or repair advice, do not hesitate to call. We are at the phones from 8:00AM to 5:00PM EST Monday through Friday 800 822-3785. Also, be sure to keep this blog bookmarked for useful welding industry news and events.

Free Shipping Added to Some Products in the Weldingpro Store

We’ve added a free shipping option for some of our used equipment in our Weldingpro store. If you see an item with FREE SHIPPING listed in it’s title or description, be sure to place this coupon code “freeship” into your shopping cart after adding the product. If the product is eligible for free shipping, the code will work. If you are looking to purchase loads of our used and reconditioned products, give us a call and we will be able to give you excellent freight rates.
