More About Weller
Weller Manufacturing Company was founded in 1945 as a family partnership near Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA. Over the years, manufacturers of many types of products – from televisions to washing machines – came to rely on Weller for its quality and reliability. The Weller brand has a long history of innovation. In the 1950's new technology from Weller maintained heat better while lowering energy consumption. Weller continued its innovation for years to come. Legend has it that Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak hand-soldered the circuit boards of the very first Apple computers with Weller tools.
Today, most of the manufacturing for Weller happens at one of two locations. Besigheim, Germany and Queretaro, Mexico. Virtually every major manufacturer of consumer electronics equipment uses Weller tools. Go with the brand that has stood the test of time. Happy soldering!
